Default When other vehicles can't!

Before my 4x4 Ranger:

I used to drive a minivan and lived close to my job so when other workers couldn't make it to work because of the snow I was called in (on my days off) because my van could at least crawl there and still make it.

Now that I own my Ranger:

I got called into work this morning because we had a bad snow storm last night and my co-worker (who lives out on a country road in BFE) couldn't get through. I immediately called her and said, "Get ready here I come". Went and picked her up and took her to work then came home to enjoy my day off! When she's done I will go get her and take her home and have fun driving through the drifts!

Now that I have my 4x4 Ranger - No more having to work on my days off because THEY can't make it to work! LOVE IT!!!

You guys get days off of work because of snow? If we get any snow on the weekend, that's when I get called out on gas calls, lol!

2WD can conquer snow. The only time I engage 4WD is when I can't make it up the hill in my driveway in 2.

I have NEVER taken a day off work because I couldn't make through the snow OR ice. Even in my 2wd vehicles. Although I feel safer and more powerful in the Ranger and I know I don't worry as much about driving in it. I personally think you either KNOW how to drive in it and you get to work...or you don't and you call off!

People who live in a state where snow storms are normal and still have never learned to drive in it...piss me off! (Sorry, for the language)
