    We had to go and pull this guy out of the ditch the other day. This guy is crazy. This is the easy part of the road and he is pulling a 5000 lb trailer up this tower road. Quite a few years ago, , in the summer we were pulling a trailer up a steeper hill on this road with our dozer and it was spinning. Luckily no one was hurt.

    The trailer is still on top of the mountain. He called us this morning and asked if we could pull him up and down with our dozer. I have a feeling he will be in the same place again or worse in the next few days.

    I got a view from the tower road next to this one to give you an idea of how high the mountain is that this guy is trying to climb.

    Here is a picture from another tower road we plow. That is Lake Superior in the Picture.
    I slid down this road backwards for about 500 ft last year and managed to keep it on the road.
