We were dispatched out for a rescue on the Kolob Terrace Road. With the amount of snow that we got in the mountains this last winter, there was still a bunch left up there to get stuck in. The truck and the camper trailer were separated so we had to separate recoveries to do.
Here’s a few recovery videos that weren’t good enough for our regular scheduled programming, but were too good to throw away. Come along with us as we get skunked on one job, and test out some new equipment on another.
We got a call for a truck that was stuck on the East side of Sand Hollow Reservoir. It ended up being a 2 wheel drive truck and was a fairly easy job. On the way out, we came across a Dodge diesel truck pulling a boat trailer that was buried to the axles in sand. The little jeep was able to pull him out and get him on his way without too much trouble.
We got a call for a 30 foot RV stuck in the sand at Sand Hollow. I had a tire fail just as we arrived to do the job. Luckily the RV didn’t give us too much trouble, and we were able to get them out on good ground before the tire totally failed.
When getting a call to do a tow out to the sand dunes it's always tricky finding the location. After finding it, these fellas had a broken U-joint on their razor and needed Matt's towing and recovery to help them out. Because of that, it was quite a process to load and get their ride out of the "blow sand", but we got er done!
