Smart Old Guy Pulls Tree Stump


You have got to hand it to wisdom, education and experience.

A long time ago I watched a man with an engineering degree back his big old 1960’s era Plymouth partly into a drainage ditch.

Naturally, he was mad as all “git out” and in no mood to call a wrecker to get his car back on the road.

He went over to a lumber pile and got the longest 4×4 he could find-about 10-12 feet.

He took the 4×4 and a cinderblock over to the rear end of the car and BY HIMSELF made a simple lever/fulcrum setup to pivot the entire back end of the car onto the road.

It was the most amazing demonstration of simple mechanics I have ever witnessed.

The guy in today’s video obviously comes from the same school of common sense self reliance.
