    USMC Recovery

    Yesterday while a couple of us from MJ were going out to wheel after meeting at my house we passed a Ford Taurus straight up on a burm. Luckily Dan (Quantum) had his 8000 lb winch ready to pull the car down after the guy (who was absolutley hammered) was pulled out. Drew (Drewskins) had the awesome job of sitting in the car to direct it when it was pulled down. shortly after the fire department showed up so we were good to go get to wheelin but it was interesting that of all the people to drive by the guy it was us with the gear. Dan got to do his first recovery with his rig so of course i documented it. pics can be seen on my page for now. Good recovery, Dan!

    Wow! That dude had to have been wasted! Hope he didn't get to drive away!

    Nice recovery!

    If the kids dad is anything like mine, he'ed rather have the cops take him

    Probably why I never have had a DUI!

    Hopefully the kid learns his lesson!

    I would of thought the FD would of brought out a Rescue rig that had a winch on it. Lucky for you though, you boys got to have some fun. Good work. And I really hope that kid got his ass beat. Stupid f*** could of killed somebody.
