Default Rising Sun member stuck needs help

Tim Buchanan just texted me asking to post this up:

"If you get this can you please post up on rs that I am stuck on the snow on rainbow Rd off of fall River Road north of Idaho Springs. Forgot my winch controller ugh"

Can we organize a rescue effort? Anyone available to run up there?

Thanks Matt. I got it stuck pretty good sideways and I'm not moving anywhere without some help. Couple shovels a truck or two with the wind should get me out. But obviously need to get this out before the snowstorm hits this weekend. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm hiking down to the main road my phone number is 720-243-2092. Anything is greatly appreciated.

How's the road to your truck? Recovery points on your truck for shackle?

Are you walking back out Fall River, or to Wild wagoneer?

There are two neighbors with Unimogs who live on Wild wagoneer. I could check to see if one of them was home and able to help if the path is clear to wild wagoneer.

Tim said a Harbor Freight winch controller is what he needs, along with shovels and some manpower. If somebody heading up there could grab a winch controller at HF that would be handy.

Thanks guys. I have hiked out to Fall River Road. A winch controller would help but I think a truck with a winch who can yank me sideways would help more. Road up there is decent but snowy, and gets worse right before my truck.
