powerstroke powa!

this weekend was my wifes birthday, so i took her out to this semi fancy restaurant here in town. but when i got into the parking lot there was a huge tour bus stuck in the ditch, it had droped off a load of people to eat. and the driver comes up to me and asked "you wanna test out your truck" so i tell him i'll give it a try, but thats a bigass bus!
so he finds a chain, hooks up, i dropped her in low and eased into it, and no lie i could barely tell the bus was back there. the old fat girl grunted it out like a walk in the park.

we didnt get any video or pix, but it was one of these buses...

Great Job. I had the Kids call one-morning a little after they took off on the bus to have me come pull them out. The bus driver used a spot that was bare in the Median but wasn't paved. He didn't drive into it at an angle. He went straight at it and the rear bumper hit. The rear duals were about 1 foot off the ground. The kids were a little shook up because of the sudden stop, but they all cheered up after I hooked up and eased the bus out. The bus driver was embarrassed but the kids were all ok and happy. About 1 year later I had to do the same thing to a U-Haul truck. That one was funny because the farmer that was trying to help the U-Haul truck had a big dodge but he wasn't getting any traction and wasn't set up at an angle. When I went back home to get my truck to help he left. Funny though he watched me do it from a little ways down the road. I will have to show my wife what size bus you helped out.
