As I recall, they live for that stuff.
Like a redneck with a pick-up and a chain, they are hoping to come upon a car wreck.
(And yes, I have pilled a camaro out of a tree)
Exactly! Almost-disasters are what make Boy Scouting fun (or so I understand from my husband and sons and their friends).
LOL, that does seem to be a favorite past-time around here doesn’t it?
The local law enforcement really gets annoyed when a “car in the ditch” is called in. Good ‘ole boys start drinking and run their truck in the ditch on Saturday night and a local comes along and yanks them out of the ditch before the law gets there to cite them for DUI.
Several years ago during the blizzard of ‘93 we had record snowfall. We aren’t used to snow. Anyway, my husband decided that since he couldn’t get the truck out he’d take the tractor and chain out to pull people out of the ditches. He forgot where the ditches were though (they were hidden under snow) and ran that big 100hp tractor off in a ditch less than 300 feet from the house. A neighbor with a bigger tractor had to come along and get him out. I think it’s a man thing. :-)
