    Not sure if this is the right forum for this. Its a toss up between here and networking but HERE WE GO.

    I live in Wisconsin where, surprise, we get lots of snow. The city's snow plow made a giant hill where we pull out of our condo and I got stuck this morning.

    I had to pull my wife's vehicle out of the snow. I couldn't find a rope, HOWEVER I did find my 100ft Cat6 cable.

    The car is now unstuck!

    So, based on the title of this thread, did you see an evil clown in the snow?

    This is the community subforum?
    Nice use of LAN cable btw :D. A few years back we used some Cat6 cable to bind together a gate that was falling apart. Damn things tough.

    Sorry, I only got the first part about the getting stuck this AM. After I posted I saw the additional info about the CAT6. I'll now give you a point for relevance.

    Silly mid-westerners. Here in the NE, we use wireless to tow our women's cars. :D

    Lol, I think you should look into getting a recovery strap...

    I guess that's not horribly dangerous, because if the ethernet cable breaks it's not going to really damage anything. You would never want to hook up a real recovery strap to your hitch ball like that though. They are not meant to take a force like that. Instead, use a hitch insert with hook or D-ring, or simply loop the strap around your hitch pin.

    If you get a tow/recovery strap, get one without metal hooks. The loop kind are much safer if something falls off or snaps...no flying metal hooks.
