Re: Another reminder!!!

That was funny, glad to see noone got hurt, but they got what they deserved for being stupid.
Nice to see they had the right recovery equipment. I guess the highlift is only for changing tires.

Re: Another reminder!!!

Stupid people never cease to amaze me.

OK so you start off with a bad idea for recover.. "Hey guys, lets pull him THROUGH the snowbank."

Throw in some definitely dead equiptment, (tied straps)
Add some stupid pedal.. and what do you get? Part failure.

Then you pull out the winch? Around here if there's a winch, and someones stuck, it gets used.. straps are for those without winches.

Then instead of using the winch to winch.. it looks like they use it as another strap. (dumb idea... especially shock loading it.)

Finally, as if they didn't learn from the first mistake and broken window.. they start yanking on it again.

I guess they're just lucky the guy in the black pickup isn't dead.

Re: Another reminder!!!

Guess they didn't like people constantly downloading 45 MB files eating up all their bandwidth... ey?

Re: Another reminder!!!

Maybe it is just a temporary bandwidth limit..... Try a bit later or tomorrow.... Downloaded a copy of the movie for my archive...
