Someone posted this picture on a 4x4 forum that I belong to and I just used the photo as it was posted.

Nice to see footprints leading (presumably) away from the hole.

That's supposing that whatever tow vehicle backed up to the house and then pulled forward, did it in exactly the same arc. Maybe.

But if a vehicle backed up to the house, wouldn't somebody have gotten out of that vehicle, and left footprints coming from the vehicle? The footprints shown only go to (or from) the hole (or hut).

I suspect that someone escaped their sinking car or truck and walked away. D'oh!
