Overheard the other day:
An elderly resident was asked what’s the best rig for Interior Alaska. He replied, “A two wheel drive pickup.”
There was some shock, and surprise in the answer, as well as a few snickers.
The Sourdough went on to say, “In a four wheel drive truck with a winch, you will get stuck 40 miles away. In a four wheel drive rig, you’ll get stuck 20 miles away. In a front wheel drive vehicle, you might get stuck 10 miles away. But in a rear wheel drive pick up truck, you’ll get stuck at the end of your road, and you can walk back home and have a beer while waiting for the road to get plowed.
