I also had to have help leaving a sawing site once.
 

 
It rained big time after I set up and then I could not get out.  I made the ruts on the right going to the sawmill that morning.

I just thought about another site that was not really that difficult, but I did have to take down and move up to the next log each time.

Those are lakeside homes being build on an oxbow lake between the Mississippi River and the levee.  Here is a LINK to the thread.

I first saw that in RI. They coverd up the "legs" with material that was designed to break away and let the water through. Some of those homes that I saw would be 300,000 homes in my area.

My old yellow backhoe, Fat Albert, is a 1968 Oliver 1650.  I don't know Robert.
