Default My 2006 honda pilot oil dipstick is stuck?

No problems with the vehicle. I just wanted to check my oil before I go on a 700 mile trip. I had an oil change back in March but rarely drive since I live in the city. Usually dipsticks just pull out, right? Ive tried pulling and twisting and it has not budged. A neighbor even helped me and was also unsuccessful. Any suggestions?

Warm the engine, and GENTLY tap the dipstick pull with a rubber mallet while pulling, until it releases.

The dipstick pull straight out. If it is seized in the hole, about the only thing you can do is remove the valve cover and break the plastic out of the hole and replace the dipstick. Have only seen this happen once.
