    Pics from last year. Plowing out (or attempting to) my in-laws driveway while they where sunning themselves in Florida. I had called my wife to come a pull me out with our avalanche but no answer. I was able to get it out after a little digging and a lot of rocking:eek:

    Hey, Bazzok, keep going like that and you'd be able to save yourself some money by starting up a lawn care service at the end of the winter season! You'll have lots of work!!

    We've ALL been there at one time or another if you've been doing this for awhile. Anybody who says they haven't hasn't done many favors for friends (or relatives)!!

    I couldn't agree more. It's usually the free ones at the end of your route that cost you the most time & money.

    Same thing happend to me kinda. I was pushing a bank back last year in a drive I have and when the guy asked me to push it back I said ok and I asked if there was anything in back of it, where i had to push the bank and he said no. Well when I pushed it back I found out there was a little 1 ft deep trench. well I got stuck haha

    That's why we put snowplows on our old wreckers.... we have to do 2 jobs at once (and don't have to call anyone when we mess up :)! )

    That wrecker idea sounds really good! I'll mention that to a few people around here. It would decrease their response time when I need them most!

    That happened to me at parents house last winter. I was clearing in front of there mailbox. I forgot the road curved right there (it had not yet been plowed) and I went off in a drainage ditch in the front yard. I gave them quit the lawn job!:eek: I finally got it out after a little work. I thought no one was home either but my mom was in the front window watching me.
