there is like so many other stuff that there that can be used to get the sameeffect.
eg: cardboards, carpets, winter rubber mats all can be put under the wheels to get traction.

hey... for those out there who keep sand or kitty litter in their cars for when they get stuck, just how much of the stuff do you use? the whole bag just under the drive wheels, or do you make a trail with it?

^ once you get the car moving with a patch of sand just DON'T STOP.

remain in motion usually keeps you going until you find a safe and FLAT/DOWNHILL position to stop

do not stop for whoever is pushing for you
do not stop if you ran over a dog
do not stop if your buddy that pushed you out of the hole has his jacket caught in your door and you are pulling him along
do not stop.

otherwise all efforts go to vain.
