I got the call Christmas night at 5 PM . I told the owner that I would not come out at night to recover him . This is about 2 miles up a dirt road and he told me the snow was two feet deep . I figured if I got in over my head I would rather do it in daylight . Drove within 50 feet of his truck in two wheel drive . The snow was only 3 to 4 inches . Locked my hubs in turned around and backed right up to him . If I had known the roads were bare I would have gone the night before . Easy tow I left his truck in gear and winched it backwards onto the road . It was 34 miles one way for me to get to where he was stuck total time n this tow was 2 hours 30 minutes . I charged him out at 2 hours .
