    I guess that's clever, provided you don't turn your tractor upside down.

    Cool. My grandpa told me about this trick but I've never seen it done.

    Along the same line, anyone ever hear of "grasshoppering" a river vessel navigating shoals and bars? Mark Twain mentioned it in "Roughing It"

    I like it. Much better than the way my old described in the 30s. They would chain a log crossways on the old steel wheels. Trouble is, if you go a few degrees too many, it crushes you and makes a hell of a mess.
