    A few pics from today. Started out with a pretty big morning. This guy has his own plow, but it broke so he gave me a call. Driveway was pretty narrow.

    Wow that drive is narrow, you were pretty close to the guide stake. He could have warned you.

    A winch would be amazing. I've often thought about getting one for the receiver in the back. Just to clarify - these pics are all in Montana. My wife and I are down here for the winter while we're in school. A few more pics from the last couple days. The first one is a return to the scene of my unfortunate incident yesterday. Kind of gives you an idea of how steep it is. Went back this morning to widen things out a bit...

    That first pic, if that was me I woulda been pissed. Were you resting the truck on the axle? Looks like it.

    Thanks for all the comments guys. I sure was resting on the axel...both of them! This is my first season with that pickup and the first time I've buried it. Luckily I had a buddy not too far away with a 3/4 ton Dodge. All he could do was pull me off all the packed snow I was hung up on, then I pulled forward, then back some more, then forward, until she was free. That's the thing about chains, when you're stuck, you are STUCK :help:
