Somebody out there is going to try everything at least once. Sometimes they actually get away with it.

Sure he does. They are just pointed in the wrong direction.

I suspect this is his solution to being able to go the wrong way around a one way campground road.

That's on the way to Watford City and Alexzander, ND. and on the way to Williston depending on where you are coming from. Good to have that receiver in in the back when you can't haul with a plate. Welcome to the Bakken.

Wow, wonder how that trip went, all that at negative tongue weight surely made it a gamble above 20mph.
I do some crazy stuff, and call it resourceful, but that is way out of my league of crazy to do.
wonder at what speed the crazy wiggle starts.

Looks like they had a little Williston white before they hooked up.
