I've always wanted one, and bid on one once, but I'm currently way underfunded for one and way under equipped to handle the maintenance they require. Just filling up that hydraulic tank alone can cost a grand.

What unit?
CO G (FSC, FA) , 113 Support Bn, ISO my old Bn, 1-163 FA, which was a 105mm ARNG Bn at the time. They're composite now, since "Modularity 2.0" came and brought back Btry C as a 155mm T unit in the Infantry BCTs. It's in Evansville, IN. My unit now is in Wackernheim, Germany, USAR. COVID killed all my travel in March. I was literally on the ground one day to do a Schutzenschuerr that was cancelled, when I found out I needed to get on the next thing smoking. BTW, I worked at Hohenfels in 2017, and Graf in 18, on ADOS. Not much cooler than walking past the Tower every day for work.

Out here some redneck in a pickup truck just shows up with a chain and drags them out of the ditch and sends them on their way. I'm one of those rednecks. We don't call a tow truck.

Some places people aren't that helpful. Around Memphis people are afraid they will get shot or robbed by stopping and helping.
