Heather and I drove up to the slide in the truck and camper the day after the recovery. It was crazy icy!
Must have been a wicked ride down.
We followed the cat tracks and it was still hard to walk.

D7 was deffenatly the best choice for the pull , we've pulled the asshole out of the world with 2 9s , the 20g bill is kind of a tough one to believe but if the cat had to be lowbeded up there and depending how far he had to walk it I guess that all factors in

We did a few stolen recoveries up at stave with our john Deere 640 line skidder , one was a dodge way up above hamburger hill that was a fun one there wasn't much left of the truck when we got it too the road

The recovery was about $4000
Maybe $3000 in lost items

Plus a written off truck.

Added up it costed far more than 20 000$

He flat out admits he fucked up bad.
Personally I would have been backing down that mountain at the first sign of an iced over road

That's why driving with you there would be trust and driving with someone like this will get you killed.

I was wondering why I haven't seen lucky #13 in awhile. I guess that explains that.
