Proud owner...

This is just a little story of what just happened...

My mom and I took the dogs to the lake in my truck (oh and the retarded dog jumped out of my truck at 40mph but he is ok).

I get home, and my dad has been trying to get this tree that had snapped down, since it was still kinda attached...

It looks like someone has tried to pull it down at one time, because it had a steel cable around it right above where it had broke...

So I take my truck up there, grab my 1k strap (chain scratched the paint off of my tow hook so I use straps now). I get it all hooked up. Throw it in reverse, in 2wd. Let off the brake, my truck pulled the lower part of it over (root ball and all) then pulled the broken half off, then dragged it about 6inches into the ground until it was on its side.

I had to wash her up I was so happy.

Camera was in my room. Pulled the whole root ball up. I was impressed.
