    That was great! The narrator was pretty good. Even said stuff that holds true today! Back then, men were men and people helped each other.

    Talk about trail busting! I feel for the poor operator. I used to cover PA & NY from Erie to Albany and always dreaded winter travel. Been dumped-on in Buffalo and blown off the road in Syracuse. Some wild rides across the NY Thruway over the years. Always in a 4WD vehicle though.

    One time I followed an 18 wheeler about 40 feet off the side of the road in a near zero visibility blizzard. Luckily I was able to get back on the road. Took the driver to the next exit where we were both able to get some food and coffee and wait out the storm.

    I couldn't help but cringe a little, watching him slam into those drifts. Those old trucks didn't have a lot of creature comforts, just thinking about taking hits like that makes me sore.

    Charlie does a good job though!

    12' high drifts with a 9' tall Vee plow and 150HP. Impressive.

    He certainly does!

    A 12' drift just seems very foreign to me. Down here, a good 'drift' is about 12"!

    One of our neighbors worked for the Dept of Higway and he has a picture of him standing on the cab of his snow blower with a long handle shovel in his arm reaching up trying to touch the top of the snow drift. You can see the snowblower setting on about 4-6 FT of snow , because the road surface was showing thru in lower part of picture. A dozer or front in loader was brought in to dig them out and to pull the snowblower off the pile of snow . The brought in piece of equipment had cleared the snow away and it I think the picture was taken back in the late 50's or early 60's.. The neighbor said they had no idea they weren't down on the road surface till the brought in piece of equipment dug there way into were they sat. Over the years the state and a business owner changed the road and removed the high banks on both sides of the road so it no longer drifts to that extent.
    Will say some of the older pieces of equipment were built like tanks, had all kind of power but not a very high top speed.
