    I don't think you qualify as an experienced driver until you take a line down. It's not our fault they hang them so low. If the utility companies would hang them up to code, we wouldn't be on here having this discussion.

    Does it count if I’ve almost done it by coming under it at an angle and picking it up with my trailer? I’ve managed to do that twice.

    Your not really a driver until you knock a pile of snow off the top of your trailer.... With a low bridge and hope to heck you didn’t damage the trailer (fortunately I didn’t damage it) lol.

    Went to this place today. It’s Carlson/Carfair in Winnipeg, MB. I have to do a double drop in there. Overhead view and what I encountered today. 53’ van and a T-680 condo. It’s fun in there.
