If you want to overheat your truck, put the plow on the front, and raise it all the way up.

Put it in the bed.

I would put it in the back in your truck bed for a trip of that distance. The truck will run cooler and it will ride much better too.

I mentioned this in another thread, but I will repost here. Discussion of lake effect snow is strickly prohibited. It will cause much jealousy and depression among the members who have to rely actual snow storms, instead of"artificial" snow.

Dino,
Your second decision as a new moderator is also a good one. Keep up the good work. The least you lake effect guys could do is set up some big fans & blow a little of that snow south & east for the rest of us jealous guys & gals.

I have a plan in place to start digging from the Conn. River west to the hudson river. Unfortunately, the enviromental impact study is caught up in red tape, and the army corp of engineers are reveiwing the flood control issues. Maybe next year.

John,
I'm still here, Dino just joined Eric and myself as a moderator. You know how it is here, and with winter coming, we need all the help we can get! Hopefully we all won't be posting here as much then, because we'll all be out PLOWING!
