Too funny not to share

I have a friend, that works at the Camping World in Chattanooga, TN. He just sent me this picture.. They got some rain yesterday and it has caused a bit of a problem...



It is, as it looks.. The truck is pulling the tractor, that is pulling the truck, that is pulling the camper!

I guess it takes a Ford and a Kubota to pull a bow tie.

Looks to be preventative rather than necessary. Ruts are not deep and likely CG owner wanted to keep it that way.

Similar thing happened to me many years ago. A prolonged dry spell turned our side yard into sugar sand. Went to pull the trailer out and got stuck. Called a tow truck. Tow truck got stuck. Second bigger tow truck showed up and winched first tow truck still attached to our truck still attached to fifth wheel out to solid ground. If it hadn't been our stuff involved it might have been entertaining.

I don't have a pic, but bac when I was young and foolish. I went out 4 wheeling in my jeep p/u. Turn down a trail in a open field the mud hole did not appear bad. Buried the left side of truck to window. Nothing close enough for the winch. My buddyou that was with me lived in walking distance. He we t got his 2 wheel drive f150. The jeep was in 4wd 8000 # winch his truck in reverse. Iwas pulling himin the hole. Just then two guys in a VW bug asked if we needed help. So it was my 4wd jeep, 8000# winch, ford f250 and a VW bug to pull it out.

Cheaper to get a tow truck to move 150' to the asphalt. This looks like a free move.
