MadAzza: Baloo Uriza: Last time I was near there in winter, I encountered a triples driver on his rookie run chaining up his trailers instead of drive wheels, wondering why he couldn't climb the hill... I spent about two hours getting him going again...


Oh, FFS. Is someone who drives for a living really that dense? I guess if he's never driven a private vehicle in compact snow/ice, either, that might explain it, but yeesh ... that kind of ignorance is a little mind-boggling.

Apparently so. I unchained the first and second trailer, moved one chain to from the front to braking wheel of the third trailer (so both trailing wheels had chains so he could use the brakes to steer that last trailer back into line in a crack-the-whip scenario) and moved the rest to his drive axles...
