About that stuck truck

I thought I'd post my replies here, seeing as how the origional post is pushed back to page 2 already.

mud,
If I had a dollar for every time I got a truck stuck... I used to have a '79 F150 that I called the exercise machine. I drove to whereever I was going then walked back to get a tractor to pull it out!

Peanut and Alias,
It was warming up just enough yesterday that the snow was at that point where if you drove over it, it packed to ice. I was on a hillside and sliding towards the woods. Don't wanna end up there! (see the snow pics I posted the other day.) Actually I think I might have gotten out on my own if that heater hose hadn't blown, spraying antifreeze on the distributor. An 8cyl running on 5 or 6, just doesn't have any get up and go. I fired up the trusty old 806 and dragged my brother from his nap. No problem, the truck is back home. Still running rough though. I imagine a new dist. cap is in order.

Chad,
I wish you did have a dollar for every time. Shoot, I wish I had the same, for trucks, D7, cars high centered, oh shoot.
---------- but hold on ---------
The money may have been our undoing anyway. Seen many a person get ruined by it. Get all big headed, then worry about who is trying to beat them out of it. Bet you known some like that yourself. Good thing we didn't get a dollar when he got hung up. We'd probably be rich and miserable nowadays. I could not abide that.

i had a mechanic buddy who had a resourceful habit. whenever he tuned something up, he'd save the old cap, rotor and a plug or 2, stash them in the rig. i never gave it much thought til last summer when i went start the john deere, here was 2 clean plugs & a plug wrench, right in the toolbox where i'd left them 10 years ago. :)
