I know - I just suck, left at 4:30 and it took an hour to get it back in the barn 15 yards away. I could have just dragged it downhill to the clear road the next 20 yards but then I realized it would be even tougher to get it back uphill later when it got colder again. Did I mention The GS is a heavy pig and the sun was in my eyes and the dog ate my homework.
I don't blame you. I wouldn't have tried it on a GS. The ice on my driveway was the scariest part of the ride; I almost didn't leave home. Luckily the SV's tires were gripping better than my worn out Doc Martens.

If only there was a portable battery powered device that one could carry with them to make and receive telecommunications, and / or access a network of people so as to communicate one's intentions and location.
