    Think of it like this.

    I write English not so well, but this thin string for sewing or fabric-making my funny wheel getickles. Baron von Schtupp

    It is hard to see when those pulleys are butted up against each other.


    I'm more concerned about not getting any points regarding Hillary's floppy breasts. That was worth a point a piece easily.

    Yeah, but I still should have been following along better. LOL. And BTW, I have tried this with only one wheel/pulley/change of direction and it doesn't work very well. It probably depends a little on the rope/COD/angle combination and how good or bad your bite is, but two pulleys is much mo better. I was trying to save some weight, but learned my lesson.

    My stomach has been too upset to say anything, and now you've made it worse.

    Carabiners instead of pulleys for weight saving. Wouldn't recommend this for anything heavier than a moderately heavy pack, though. LOL

    Thanks CE, that's what I was thinking too.

    Getting an animal in the truck:

    There's a rather ingenious way of doing it involving running a rope over and then (I think) under your vehicle that I read about many years ago but can never remember the mechanics of, so needless to say I have never tried it. Maybe it's under and then over, LOL. Forward, reverse?

    I've used ramps before and lifted (with my legs!). You can also use a ramp and one pulley mounted in the front of the bed. (Attached to a rope between tie downs, or I've used the hardware on the folded back seat of the Bronco (before I decided to use the whole back for gear). Run the tow rope through the pulley and tie off one end to the animal (which you have started on the ramp) and the other to a tree, fence post, telephone pole etc. Then drive slowly forward, pulling the animal into the bed.

    This is the same idea, but you don't need a separate tie-off point:






    This is for somebody who has a friend who can weld. Bluecat, you have about half the equipment you need already with that Viking hoist:
