    I took this video yesterday. It's a stuck single axle International plow truck being pulled out with another single axel International plow truck. The driver was backing up and slid into the ditch becouse it was so slippery yesterday. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkCFrHKK9EY

    The plowing camp and the CAT 966 loader. The plowing camp may not look like much but, after you have bean up for over 24 hours it's like a suite in a 5 star hotel. The CAT 966 is the back up loader.

    That camp sure beats the hell out of sleeping in the truck.

    Ya it does. I can't sleep in a truck. I can doze off but, I can never actualy sleep. The camp has two beds and there is tree drivers plus me that use that camp. Hopefully next Winter my uncle can put two bunk beds in there so there is a bed for everybody and we won't have to take turns.

    No, usualy you don't need chains with a load on. But, this storm chains would have bean realy nice.

    What kind of roads do you plow? For the local towns or private?

    I don't plow them. My uncle has the road plowing contract for Belgrade, Maine. I just ride with him almost every storm. I'm probably going to plow for him two Winters from now.
