In my five years of Bonneville ownership, I've only gotten my car stuck once. Last Friday, actually. I parked on an icy patch of an unplowed driveway and had to alternate between reverse, drive, shovel, and swearing until I got out. Also, a plow came by, built a wall, and severely hindered my progress.

For all other times, I have tennis rackets that can work as makeshift snowshoes.

nice setup bill, the missus wants one of them. Would take too long to do our road but there a couple spots in the yard that are tight with the CJ7 and the little myers setup on it, let alone the GMC and and it'* 8' blade. Plus it would make clearing off the pond out back for skating and hockey alot easier than lugging the snowblower down there.

Tommy....4 wheel drive on demand, automatic with low and 4 wheel posi with the touch of a button. 660cc'* of happiness with a 5 foot plow. They make a 6 footer, 5 foot is only a couple inches of grass, wider than the sidewalk. I can live with a couple inches of the lawn being misplaced.

Jack..it'* amazing in those tigher spots and awesome for sidewalks if you are clearing snow for a living. My neighbor bought a 4x4 with plow because once in a while last year I wasn't around to help plow off the pond out back. We even have a zamboni...

We shovel my driveway by parking all the cars in there the night before. Then in the morning drive our cars to the street and brush off the snow. With 4 cars that doesn't leave alot of open driveway.

Plowing around my lake is frowned upon and liable to get you chased off. It severely ruts/washboards the road and we dont have a town to come fix it.
