    @brian991219 do you think they did an awesome job? I don’t believe this same situation would have the same outcome much of the time.

    I do. I know the owner of the towing company that did the recovery personally and he is a stand up guy. That could have gone very wrong in a hurry.

    I am sure we (I say we because I'm a writer for the magazine) will be recognizing the recovery team this November at the American Towman Expo in Baltimore.

    I figured you knew them, they have been the Top Dogs in Louisville as long as I can remember. I was hoping to run in to you in Gainesville a couple weeks ago. I went down to bring a rig back for a friends company. IMG_9206.png

    I can only imagine what sitting in that truck for 40 minutes felt like.

    I was just at Cottrell Friday night and again Saturday morning. Moved one up to North Carolina and then dropped one this afternoon in Pennsylvania. I can't post pics yet, but one was a W990. I liked the extra room in the cab but it sure did look funny.
