So as we all saw, Nezzy had a little mishap... so first thing Saturday morning Toddler, Levy and I met up with Nezzy, his friend Andy and Warlord..
117925

and a "guest"
117923

We found pegleg's truck and it didn't look good... Toddler's "oh fuck" light came on in sympathy...
117924

Peggy considers jumping..
117926

He decides it's the stumps fault and starts berating it and Toddler offers him the axe...
117928

He readies himself for attack
117929

Luckily Andy and Walt pulled it to safety.. poor stump
117927



ok, not really...
I think we arrived around 12 and quickly got to work pulling it out.. Andy was the main force and Todd was back up, flipping it over, holding it steady while Chris and Andy pulled it up slowly but surely... had to stop a few times to let the natives by <get it, natives? lol> and some awesome hippies in a van...
The whole thing was pretty painless.. what was not painless was Pegleg having to drive it back the sasquatch inn with no windshield... haha... :D

117930

117931

117932

117933

117934

We ditched Pegleg and headed for Sloquet.. snowy, windy cold.. luckily we got to hang out in a camper with some friends, but we spent the night in the freakshow...bleh... sleeping in the freakshow.. less then comfortable
117935

todd all cocooned, he may have said "f-you" at that point...
117936

a view while driving out...
117937

and poor tired levy trying to sleep on todd's arm...
117938

yes, todd got a full soft top on friday (thanks rmiller!) and rearranged the back so levy slept there and we crashed in the seats with sleeping bags...
but yah, not going to happen again in winter.. way to freaking cold..

cool extraction. that cable snapping was sketchy!

curlee
11-17-2009, 10:23 PM
there were some trunks to move out of the way first, which andy towed out of the way. then andy dragged it straight, and todd hooked up and flipped it over... when he tried to drag it up, you can see what happened... I can tell you, after that cable snapped (really shitty cable lol) todd made me get out of the way...
then andy dragged it up slowly, and peggy kept stopping them both to reposition the cables.. that part was a long process and every yahoo in the world drove through at that point including a van full of hippies - of course... walt kept calling them "cute" hahaha

it was super cool to watch the two of them at the end pull it up the final part...

Good extraction ( 'cept for the cable snap! ). If ya need a replacement cable, I got a couple you can have. One is of my 9.5ti, I switched to Synthetic rope shortly after getting the winch, so it is fairly new cond, couple small kinks.
Lemme know, yer welcome to 'em.

I need to get me one of them OH FUCK lights for my rig...

Did the runner have a problem firing up or have any new squeaks on the way to town? :D
We had to crimp off a few viens in the rad to get it to hold water.

Nice job. Good vids... Can see, or so it seemed, that it fired up no problem. Nice..
That thing fired like a champ. (once we boosted the dead battery)
Not even a puff of smoke either. And the oil stayed in it being on it's side for three full days and nights.

the vid was awsome,plus the wheel stand[36] I'm surpirse the cable didn't give any warning pops!!:dontknow:
oh that cable was popping and groaning the whole time he was pulling on it, it was just a matter of time.
