No one ask me to i understand , im just making a point to protect you guys that have the best of intents with this vid .
Sad but true.

Gman would it help then if they videod what not to do rather than what to do? If you are showing people what not to do what could you be held liable for?

Seen way too many people (relatives and friends of mine included) use those cheap A$# tow ropes with hooks on them to snatch pull trucks out.

This sucks to hear glad I have been at it for a few years and have far more knowledge than I did 15 years ago.

I think its better to show them how to do it correctly , just make sure the vid has a good dissclaimer stating this is not done by pros , use these methods at your own risk , legal crap like that to protect the folks trying to help .

I didn't read any post beside Bruce's first one. I think its a great idea, and seems like :gman: would probably have the most experience in recovery. Let me know if there is anything you need help with Bruce.
