Sometimes I wonder what we did when the 4x4 truck was not the norm.

We all had 2 wheel drive trucks and would chain them up at the bottom of the hill as we came off of asphalt, and if needed we would pile a few hundred pounds of rocks into the back. It would surprise you at where that combination would go.

I agree with you, my dad never did own a 4 wheel drive vehicle and we went everywhere.

One of my best memories as a kid of about 10 or 11 was when we were deer hunting with some friends that had a doge power wagon 4x4 and we were traveling in the mountains we came upon a marshy area in the road that was really muddy, the friends said that they would go first in case we got stuck they could pull us out, half way through they got stuck and couldn't go back or forward, I asked my dad what we were going to do and he said: "hang on", he floored it and went around the doge though the mud and when he got to dry road stopped and got out and told them to hook up the tow strap and we pulled them out of the mud.

Lot's of good memories in that 62 and then in a 72 International pickups.

Was he successful?
