re: Whats the OB doing this morning/today?


I haven't got my new one stuck. My old super duty was no stranger to tow ropes though.



I was also a lot younger and did some dumb shite.

Mine was sitting on the frame. I was coming out until my bumper hit the other side. Apparently a big washout had gotten made right there.

Wish I would've taken a picture of it. Luckily there was about 100 yards of high and dry ground behind it so we could pull it out reasonably easily.

I have a huge rigging line, chain, and 40k pound tow strap in my truck right now.

We had 3 30k pound crane chokers shackled together and one guy in a brand new chevy with very poor throttle discipline

The mud on my truck is self inflicted. We had about 100' of strap shackled together to get to high ground.

It was baddddddd.

Like my buddy said, there's stuck, and then there's fricked.

We were fricked

This brings up a question for me then, can you CC on bourbon just walking around like that? I would be strapped if I was down there. I haven't been on bourbon for Mardi Gras in about 8 years though.


I'm pretty sure you can.

Does that refer to backing a trailer?

My tip of the day:

When backing a tandem axle, be sure your fancy-ass adjustable hitch is low enough that the front axle of the tandem is level w/ the rear axle.
Otherwise, it makes for a PITA.

85% of people who own class V adjustable chrome hitches don't pull shit
