BogMonster Posted August 14, 2005 Share Posted August 14, 2005 ....because when you really need one you find that just one is not enough!! I finally had to try my "twin anchor" idea this afternoon - having only been saying the other day that carrying both of them was a guarantee that I'd always get out using one A slight delay due to this became a longer delay due to this pulled the KittyGripper out .... twice OK bite the bullet, out with the mil anchor tube, walk over to an "apparently firm bit of ground", back for pins, walk over, back for pins, walk over, back for pins, walk over, back with sledgehammer, bang bang bang bang bang bang bang F&&& bang bang bang bang gasp wheeze stagger back to vehicle nearly falling in the by now 18" deep hole right under the drivers door, would it hold? would it hell ... twice again! At this point to add insult to injury a bunch of walkers that had chosen the same bit of countryside to explore for the afternoon came ambling by and stopped to watch. Last thing you need when things aren't going according to plan is an audience ... apart from anything else it inhibits the free flow of Anglo-Saxon which is essential to any unsuccessful recovery Anyway after a bit of thought about how best to rig up both of them together I did this and it moved .... just Half an hour and far too much effort carting big lumps of metal around - you lot with trees to winch off don't appreciate what an easy life you have Nigel I have another project for you - design a self-cleaning KittyGripper! By 'eck that thing is a filthy contraption to try and fold up when it's still got half a peat bog attached to the spade.... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
