    How \"not\" to use a snowplow

    Todays Mission: Retrieve motor,tranny and bed off a parts truck.

    Crew: Me and two others

    Equipment: Plow truck, and Suburban with 22' trailer.

    Problem: Lots of snow on property and hills. Numerous times stuck... trailer didn't make it 25 feet past the entrance.

    Solution: Leave trailer blocking road, retrieve parts by eventually flipping parts truck upside down, temporary and unstable placement of truck bed up on racks, use plow to move trailer, then use winch to get plow truck unstuck... plus a bunch of shoveling etc... finally get everything onto main road, move truck bed onto trailer, strap down, go home.
