URL plow in action

13 posts in this topic

When the new road was punched into the Crappie Highway I got some shots of the URL plows rolling on Hillmans road. This is why they ask you to stay away from the road bank and give them the right of way, and this was throwing against a good wind.

Bet those chunks would raise heck on the wax job or portable canvas. \:o

Its fun for the first five minutes then you realize it is just a sick and twisted way to torture trucks and your body.

I think you took that the wrong way. I used that pics as my desktop. I'd hate to imagine what really happens to those trucks.

Great photo. In order to enhance the intensity of the next photo, the plow truck driver should be wearing a "Jason" mask.

how far are those ice chunks flying 50ft.? the shape my portable material is in right now those chunks would have no problem making skylights, seeing that i can see right through my tent. I finally broke down the other night and ordered a new voyager tent from clam, cant wait to get that put on in this weather.

You look at that and then realize........Maybe that access fee is not so bad after all ;\) It could be your truck trying to run over all that snow ;\)

With that plow the big chunks will land up to 70 feet away. Some plows are shaped to throw the snow high so the wind catch's the snow and carries it away and some like this one are shaped to throw for distance. Your portable wouldn't just have holes, it would be flattened. At 40 feet another vehicle will have it's windows broken, mirrors, windshield wipers and grill torn off and the body panels caved in.

This truck even though it was not very pretty had:

A full grill

crack free windshield

no major dents or dings just a little rust.

Afterwards the window went, both mirrors blew out, the dash busted, hood would not open, grill destroyed, raditior leaked, passnger door knocked out of alignment and that was from a plow making a corner where they have little power and don't throw the snow very far. I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. My fault because I didn't communicate with the other drivers about who was going where.

10 bucks is very a reasonable fee. If only for the peace of mind an established road gives a fisher person.

      Welcome what are you training her for waterfowl upland or both? What is her name?

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
