In December, 2009 the last 40 Marines were waiting for their ride, a charter bus leaving Quantico, VA. 500 Marines had just completed pre-deployment training and were headed to Afghanistan. We just had a record breaking snow storm and were stranded in the back part of Marine Corps Base, Quantico for three days. The bus should have arrived, so I drove down the snow and ice covered road to see if there was a problem. I found the tour bus stuck in a snow bank on a Route 1 exit ramp. It had stopped at a stop sign, slid backwards about 50 meters and lodged into a snow bank. After several attempts of shoveling and rocking the bus, the driver called a wrecker. It would take about 6 hours to arrive, so the frustrated bus driver allowed me to help. I attached a tow line to my 2001 F-250 Super Duty and pulled the bus out of the bank and up the incline on an icy road. What an awesome truck! A picture is worth a thousand words.
