Nice recovery story, nice attitude. Yeah, cold works for mud or snow, the colder the better. I have used the nights freeze to get out early the next morning. I had a pretty good two day recovery affair last month in Death Valley. If you go off the grid, there will be times you get stuck. Smiling about it helps, my partner is like yours. I always carry two shovels, that way you can make sure that those standing around drinking beer can't laugh while you dig. If you have a high-lift jack, make sure you carry a piece of thick plywood to put under it or you will drive the jack into the ground.
