Large Articulating Dump Truck Over the Hill in River

Monster Truck Recovery
Near Hyampom Up in the Northern California Mountains!

 The picture is zoomed in, truck is down about 200 feet from top!
 This Recovery took all of our extra Cable and Snatch Blocks
 While Clayton's Towing rigging team worked the machanic team prepared truck so all the fluids would not leak out during the recovery up the hillside, out of the river.
 Justin instructing the team for his game plan!
 The hillside was so steep that every trip up and down the men had to use repelling equipment, there was a negative drop close to the botton, the ground was loose and rocks where constantly rolling near the recovery team with every movement of man, and winch lines.
 You just never know in the Heavy Duty Towning and Recovery Business what your next job will be? Or what you will have to do to get the next job done! 
 Recovery and winching equipment going up and down hillside
 Just starting the hard pull! This is close to 70,000lbs and all but 2 tires where flat, with bent fender into one of them, which made a bad drag for the recovery. The truck keep tracting off to the side and snatch blocks and line had to be constantly re-set....huge job each time!
Justin and his team did such an incredible job!!!

 Antoher shot of how tough and steep the terrains was that added to the challenge of this remarkable recovery!!
 Final getting to the top after multiple times of re-rigging snatch blocks and line on this Monster to get it out of the river up to the top!
 All most there!
