I understand, but sometimes you either ride through the mud or turn around and sometimes turning around is not a good option or even possible.

The problem of mud is a real one. While I carry pulleys and a rope, you still need an anchor point. It will be interesting to hear of solutions and options.

Before anyone cries "idiot", I also do ride alone, off road and way out beyond choice, but I try to be well prepared for issues like this one. Amplify that by sliding downhill on a steep slope. Sometimes walking out is the last option.
