Hey! I resemble that remark!

Thanks again Stephen! We all had a great time up there!

And I know I've been thankful for that strap and that winch before...

It was fun to ask Chris on the Ham if I could borrow his strap...which was in my truck, along with his tree saver, and his clevis, and someone else's 20' strap...

Being the last truck in the line, you end up being the cleaner with a lot of recovery gear!
