    Great ending.

    About 4 years ago a State Trooper was heading to a call, had the lights and siren going, turned north on the the highway was making good time until he hit some black ice, His car started to fish tail headed toward the east ditch, came back around when into the west ditch let out a couple of profanities and he was entering the ditch, while down in the ditch his car turns and is facing the right direction. The car does not come to a complete stop, he gets back on the road again. Starts down the highway, albeit not as fast about a mile down the road he lets out a uffdaa what a ride, man I was doing a 120 back there. The whole time he was never excited. Great piece of video from a dash cam.

    Thats a long one. How much do you get for that drive?

    $50 per push, the circle and garage area at the end are a pain in the ass, I need to get a bigger plow and a shorter truck!

    I also failed to mention that I manage to get my truck stuck on Sunday... I was runnin my parents driveway being the nice son that I am, it's long as heck too and I hit some ice under the snow comming up to the end. I managed to get hung up on last weeks snow pile:gunsfiring: Took me about 30 minutes of shoveling before my old man got home with the Suburban, few tugs and I was out. We manage to bend the chain hook-ups on my hitch while we were at it:realmad:

    You ain't seen nothin'!

    Try that with 3 ft on the ground, 6% to 15% grades, and 3/4 to 1 and a half miles length and you MIGHT have a clue as to why we get $150 per hour - 1 hour min for drives in Rampart Range CO! NINE ft since October!

    All the same, charge what you can get, keep your rig on the road, don't tear up the rig or yourself trying to keep the camcorder on the dash.

    HINT: Velcro!;)
