So I got bored tonight after helping a bunch of people stuck in ditches. This is what I came up with. Some will find it funny, some will think I'm nuts. Take it for what you want. Oh and since it's the holidays, it's in a "The Night Before Christmas" rhyme.

'twas the night of a white out
and all through the streets
not a vehicle with traction
except for my Jeep

Civics, Contours
and everything small
blinking hazards
no control at all

Even an intrepid
had missed it's turn
ass up in a ditch
spinning tires that burned

Out came the straps
winch and the pull
I hooked it all up
to any ditched soul

The little jeep tugged
and tugged some more
winching and pulling
until he was sore

Driving on home
to park for the night
winding up the winch cable
tidy and tight.

You have to be very careful when pulling cars out . Most do not have tow points and this can happen

Mary thank you

JK_Nut I saw that video a few years ago. It reminded me of a friend from High School. He did that to a teacher's car. I familiar with pulling different cars and where to hook up. Most vehicles still have the transport hooks/loops still left on them and they are tied into the frame.

v1nc3 I like it. Good job!

snake I think as a club we should see about offering a emergency response team where we will drive doctors/medical staff to and from work on bad weather days and also offer assistance for extreme weather problems. Do you guys remember the snow storm last winter that shut down the 401 and trapped many people? I was part of a Search and Rescue crew that went in looking for people trapped all by 4x4. It was rewarding and looked good for the 4x4 communities.

D&D Cherokee thank you

Ya there is a Jeep club that I have herd of in northern Quebec that do that the system they use is simple but would need dedicated volinteers with well equipped and reliable vehicals. Where there is most of the work is setting it up.

No thats not how these guys work it is not a search and rescue it is we get contacted when when there is a snow storm in which people like nurses doctors have vehicals in which can't get them to work.

I agree with Brook. It's very rare we get weather so bad people can't drive their cars to work. In fact, I can't remember a single snow storm since moving to this area that kept me off the roads if I had some where I needed to be.
However, if someone would like to volunteer to take this on, you're more than welcome. If you want to do it as Tri-City Jeep Club then we'll have to talk a little bit more in depth.

I looked into this about 4 years ago for the club.
Contacted the guy at the club on the East coast that does it out there.
And yeah, they're not Search and Rescue, they just give rides to the nurses that can't get out of their driveways when the weather goes bad.
There's a lot of liability issue associated with it unfortunately.
I determined at the time that the best thing for the club was to keep an eye out on an ad hoc basis and step up when the time is called for. Remember, if the weather is ever that bad to never embark on some kind of rescue mission by yourself.
If you want more info on this just let me know and I'll see if I can dig it up.
I'm sure I posted most of the information in the forum back then so you might just want to do a Search.
