I thank the lord for it all the time. prayer seems to be the best tool in the tool box with a tucker.

That road was a sheet of ice and I slide back about 50ft. The backbone rep Mike said it should be fine cause the buses where making it up. The buses had chains on lol. so I made a spit second decision to go for it and ended up back at the bottom moments later. a Pisten bully pulled the whole rig out.

This was the second time I got stuck that day. Colorado has been getting hammered with snow. thought I had a good snow tire with the goodyear dura track but guess it was not enough. so the next day I went out and bought chains for the haul truck.

Yeah, thatís looks a bit scary but real lucky at the same time.
Iíll admit thatís I had a little scare myself this year on my one and only time out. Hit ice on the way up the hill and had the truck and trailer fishtailing a bit. Fortunately we were going up hill and I was able to get it corrected ok. However there was a rollover right behind me. I was wondering where the line up of cars went! I didnít it see it but heard about it when we stopped.
Be careful out there folks.
Glad this turned out ok too.

The picture may be deceiving, but it looks like there could have been a whole lot more sliding if it didn’t stop there!

everyone asked if I put it in the ditch on purpose and the answer was no. I had no control of the rig once it started sliding.

On a better note .

Next we will be building the ultimate roof rack for the Tincup Tucker it should be ready for the next event.

I'm also open to all suggestions about the roof rack. it will run almost the full length of the cat. I also think we are going to have to reinforce the roof supports. on the rack will hold snowboards/ski, camera gear, cases of whisky, speakers, light bars, and a tepui tent. going to go all out with this so we can haul more gear and have room for nothing but people on the inside.

I did the same with my pistenbully loaded. I slid back about 200ft and the trailer stopped over a steep bank with me on the road. a wrecker pulled me out the next day.

Although it would distract from the cat a four bar linkage roof rack that comes down to the ground hydraulically so you load everything on the ground would be cool......
