Rotflmao here!!!!!

About a month ago i sent my coordinator on a HUD property a video of the road to a HUD property we are maintaining. Told them no more trips up it as i was tired of beating up my vehicles. I'm parking at the bottom and taking the 4 wheeler.
no grass growing anyways so screw the grass cut. Talked to the agent this morning and her asset manager sent her the link to confirm this was really the road. LMAO!!! She confirmed and said the same thing i told them. Once the snow flies it's over. This is a chains required area unless you want to go slip sliding away and they don't pay enough for me to put chains on!! There are a few stretches of 8% slope on the road with sharp curves. And before anyone mentions it, my fuel gauge read over 1/4 tank going up hill..........

looks like all the roads around here, except state roads highways and interstates. i had a re-cut down a drive like that this week, had to strap and tie everything down if you wanted to keep it and no place to turn around with a trailer, that is rough on equipment.

re

I wouldn't call that too tough, (might have to plow as you go in the winter) I had one this summer that the road made such a drastic steeep dip that I hit the nose of my truck on the far side of it and then the back bumper coming down and then the trailer as I went through it at 2 mph.

The biggest pain in a route like that is that it takes you 15 min to go the last 3 miles.

It would take tire chains on all 4 wheels to THINK about plowing it. I wouldn't put my plow on it though. Too many boulders sticking up in the roadway. There is an 850' elevation rise in the last 2 miles of the road as well. Anything over 10MPH and your bouncing chit off the dash and beating the hell out of your truck. It was rough on the 4 wheeler at 20MPH. Here are a couple pics of the road this spring and a pic of what's at the top........

oh nm then, from the tiny youtube view it doesn't look any rougher then the driveway to my cabin, 850 rise probably enough to make it difficult. Why would anyone live there and not do something about that?
