Winter Wheelin #2½; Rim Road

BOVADS beat me to #2 so I'll call it this since it was the day before the run that BOVADS posted;

My son Brandon (AKA BADAZ) came up with us to check out the rim road above Stawberry. We pulled off teh highway to see that the gate was open and a BA chevy on 35's was stuck 100 yards in;

we got turned around and decided to try to head out to MRP hoping the snow would be less deep and I also let him out front to try and cut trail. He got stuck once and in my haste i hooked up the yank strapp and pulled him out only to get a eal frickin tight know in it. Well since we only went a half mile and we had to go down a decent hill that we were going to have to come back upsomehow we decided to work on the knot;

we got past teh ruby's only to find out there was a stuck truck traffic jam at teh gate. didn't get any pics cos my photographers feet were cold.

I stopped and walked up to see what was up, there was a chevy with a quad in the bed stuck toteh left, an old 60's dodge crewcab with a rhino in the bed stuck to the right and a f150 SC stuff further in. I drove around them all, winched out the chevy then towed him to the highway, man was he pissed, winched out teh dodge and towed him to teh highway then winched/pulled out the ford. The guy in the ford was unbelievably grateful as his wife was fumin pissed. He offered $20 to Cristina as she was out of teh truck at this point to get soem pics, she said he doesn't owe us anything but he insisted, the others offered and I declined again but they insisted, so I made $60 in an hour and a half of towing out full size rigs.

Some of the comments Cristina heard while I was winching/towing were; "screw this rhino, I want a rig like that", "Man how does that rig just go where ever he wants it to?"



This guy showed up while I was pulling out teh dodge and cos he had a Geep thought he could go anywhere, well he was wrong and one of the Ruby guys winched him out before I could give him crap for bein a bonehead.

Its always redeeming to help out people with more balls than sense. Especially when they appreciate it in the end.

The guy's wife was probably pissed because she said "You aren't going to try that are ya?" and he said "Hell yeah!". Been there before
