Was heading up shooting today and was flagged down by a couple of kids in a Blazer, they saw my winch and asked for help. I followed them up to a Jeep that had slid off the road and being kept on all fours by a tree. Yanked him out by snatching to a tree with no problems. Then they said the 4Runner was another 1/4 mile up. Got to it and it was a little more of a problem, had to run a line off the rear frame up to a tree with a come-along to keep the thing from wanting to roll. I put the Jeep behind me and chained bumper to bumper incase the Runner started moving down (it wouldn't have went to far because of all the trees). My friend brought his Expedition right up by the Runner and I snatched off his tow hook and pulled the runner sideways back up from it's front end. I then snatched off the line attached to the tree to finish bringing him up. It was an interesting recovery for me, we took our time and made sure of all our connections. If it wasn't for the trees today both rigs would have tumbled a long way down. So...I broke in the winch and syn line today by helping out some others.
