    I know it's counter intuitive, but have you tried pushing some, then maybe turning & pulling back?

    could you tell what kind of pipe you went into ? IF its cast and there is a V groove cut in the bottom and you went past it....then digging is the only option....

    No luck.

    I managed to get my mini down through the mud and see it.

    It looks like somehow my microdrain took a different route and is stuck at the branch to the main line. I can see it sticking into the pipe from the side, so somehow both cams got to the same spot taoing different routes.

    Trying to get things lined up to dig.

    So after 3+ months of either the homeowner out of the country or us not being able to hit their small window of availability, our schedules finally meshed.

    I went out there today to mark out a JULIE to dig. I figgered I'd try give it one more try before digging.

    I start pushing and pulling and all of a sudden it will move out but not back. I hook the monitor up and see it moving so I know it's not turned around. I keep playing with it- twisting, turning back and forth and POP- it slides past the spot it was hung up at. I wasn't looking to see what I was hung on and I wasn't going back in to find it.

    I almost pee'd my pants.
