I pulled an escort out of a snowbank. The newspaper guy got a little too close to the neighbours box and climbed the bank. Needless to say, he just needed a little tug.
Other then that, I just waved at the other idiots in the ditch as I went by. Most people who end up in the ditch deserve it anyway. Speed and improper driving for the weather conditions always do it.

This winter, our plow guy brings his 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500 into our lot to plow. Buried it in our back yard plow down. Took my little FX4 and pulled him right out. Turned out his plow pump blew and earlier that day his transfer case went. He was in 2wd and in about 8" of snow...can we say "Fail"?

I had to pull out my 1998 saturn sc1 becuase we had a lot of freezing rain on top of some snow and when i parked it in the yard it cracked the ice and made small indents. could get enough traction to pull its self out so i gave it a little tug with the ranger. I also had to hook on to my dads 250 diseisl 4x4 because he was down over a hill with a trailer on and the ground had just started to thaw in the morning and he was just slipping. Just put it in 4lo on the top of the hill and pulled him right up!

Pulled around 6 people out of snowbanks/ditches this year.

A majority of them were my dumb friends trying to drift or something similar.

The best one had to be when I pulled out the mail man twice in one day. On a down-sloping court he slid into a snow bank once and I had to get him out. Then on the way up the court he got stuck and couldn't make it up the hill..So had to help him again. haha.
