That last paragraph says it all... I had lost my license twice before I was 21, and been through more traffic school than I care to think about. Though, I made a 13 year stretch without a ticket, I've had 3 in the last 7 years. And hopefully, as I pass the 2 year anni of the last one, it WAS last one...

My club and some other folks did a recovery of a vehicle recently that was stuck out in the desert snows. There was a second that needed some work and the snow to melt before it can be recovered. A club where I used to live does those sorts of recoveries all the time. Hmmm, if there was a rally group out here, I might see if we can help.

Yes, the 4x4 in the snow flat out can be fun, lucky you had a "closed cousrse"! One of my most recent "stucks" was after our 22" overnight snowfall last week. I was goofing around in an empty parking lot that hadn't been cleared when I got the bright idea to do a douhgnut around the light pole... When I came to a stop, sideways, I had snow pushed about halfway up the passenger side windows. Took some doing, but I got clear on my own. Turned around later that morning giving 3 cars tugs with the tow strap.
