The pilot stated that he ran out of fuel and made a forced landing in a cow pasture. The pilot further stated that after getting 9 gallons of 100LL fuel, refueling the airplane, and taxiing from the cow pasture to a 1,500-foot dirt road, he attempted to take off on the dirt road, but aborted the takeoff when it looked like he was not going to make it. The aircraft's right wing collided with a tree and the aircraft incurred substantial damage.
