And there's other times when the ground is so soft that it might be hard to use. I'm thinking deep gooey mud. Difficult to get any traction with your feet when trying to pick up the bike, and the jack may never hit anything "solid". When I go down in such a situation I try to hook ratcheting straps between the bike and any nearby trees. Either that, or find something that can brace my feet in place.
