I'm not entirely sure what it is that's stuck, but if you're talking about a stripped/rounded bolt, and it sounds like you may be because EZ outs are being discussed, I got a trick that sounds plain stupid, but actually works:

*) Drill a small hole all the way through the bolt. When I say small, I mean just big enough to accommodate a birthday candle. You know, the kind you can't fit on the cake anymore because you're too damn old.

*) Insert birthday candle in the hole.

*) Heat bolt with torch until it's cherry red, thus melting the candle.

*) Allow to cool a few seconds. Now try your EZ out/left handed bit/whatever. Theory is that wax melts, lubricates the threads and voila! Bolt basically removes itself.

This worked well for a buddy of mine who stripped a waterpump bolt on a small block Chevy. The key was drilling through the bolt, but stopping before he hit anything important.

Not valid with other offers, YMMV, known by the state of California to cause cancer, etc.

Hey, I'm even tempered. I'm ALWAYS pissed off. Besides I just un-boxed my meds and I should calm down in a hour or so.

So I'm reading about the Mississippi River drying up, due to the drought and that got me thinking about riding river beds. Have any of y'all thought about venturing down these dry creek beds, in the NF or even the possibility of running up and down the Mississippi River on dry land.?

I've ridden some creek beds. Richland Creek here in NWA usually goes dry in the summer, lots of atv's/4x4's drive down it. It's fairly rodky and not alot of fun on a bike.

I can see it being slow going. Of course, down here, a lot of creeks have mud bottoms, which is why the creek swimming here is awful. Something akin to swimming in a mudhole or pond.
