them roads!

Anybody else spend all day pulling people out? these little FWD cars are out of their element!

honda civic
eclipse
fully loaded tractor trailer
some old sedan
box truck stuck on the tracks

the tractor trailer didnt need much to get going, but you should have seen the looks on peoples faces when a little 2 door on 37's got it going!

box truck broke a towstrap that they tied on to the bumper like idiots before I arrived, we had to daisy chain an f350-H2-JK to get it off the tracks.

I'm further south so not much ice here other than bridges, apparently we had some pretty bad wrecks on them.

up here the bridges arent so bad because they stay pretty solid whereas the rest of the road is a mess of potholes and slush now. the bridges are the only thing that stays smooth lol

Down here in the Austin area, we got nothing but really cold wind. Glad you gave your rig a work out and helped some people at the same time.

I work for the electric company so if I didn't have to work all day, I would be pulling people out. I still have fun on the way to and from work though. When you have good tires, those rough overpasses can be a pain in the ass!

Hell yea had a blast in corinth area pulling people out. First night they had 35e north shutdown from Sanger to corinth backed up with traffic and people would try to cross the median thinking the service road was the best route, most didn't make it.
