Snow/Bronco Pics/Story Time

I guess I will start with the story. We excitingly got some snow yesterday, and with school being over for the semester, and work off that day, I decided to go out and snap a few pics of my truck with the somewhat new lift and 33's. Well, out near the farming land they don't plow the roads, so they get really icy. As I was taking pics, I saw a Yota Rav4 hit a patch of ice, and go off the road into a ditch. Needless to say, I drove over there to make sure the occupants were alright. They hit the ditch pretty hard. Luckily, there was just the male driver in the car, and he was fine. He was already on the phone calling for a tow truck when I got there. So, I saw this as an opportunity to make my first recovery of the season. He agreed to let me pull him out, and the Bronco did it like a champ.

It really felt like there was nothing even back there. I figured it would struggle a bit considering the depth of the ditch, and the ice on the road, but it didn't. At first I was trying to pull him out at an angle, down the shoulder of the road, due to on coming traffic. Of course, this didn't work and I was just dragging him down the ditch into bushes and such. After some passing motorists saw what I was doing, they stopped traffic coming both ways and I pulled him out straight.

Haha, I know, doesn't sound like a big deal to a lot of you but it really was the hi light of my week. I love doing stuff like that. I know you all will want pics of the recovery, but I didn't snap any. I thought about it, but it all happened pretty fast. The guy was pretty damn embarrassed, and I didn't want to sit there and snap pics with traffic being held up. Anyway, here are the pics I took before the accident.
