There is not always a tree to winch yourself to. Knowing this, we packed a Pull Pal winch anchor under the back seat to bury in the ground should we get stuck. For those of you who have never used a Pull Pal, let us tell you how ingenious those things are. We buried it in our front yard and used it to tow a Jeep uphill just to try it out. The structure of the Pull Pal puts force at the shovel tip/plow when a winch applies pulling force to the attachment point, and subsequently drives the plow down into the ground. This will be our savior if we get stuck in a giant field somewhere.
