26 Aug Contest: The $64 Question
THE 1st OF MANY $64.00 CASH QUESTIONS FROM THIS BLOG!
Many of my upcoming blog posts will be a challenge and a contest. Whether snowcat, safety or tower certification related, the challenge will be in the form of a difficult question. If you are the first to email me with the correct answer you receive $64.00 and bragging rights. This week the question is in fact a little tough (you thought I would send you $64.00 for answering an easy question—really?). My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
THE $64.00 DOLLAR QUESTION- #1
OK, here is your question. If you have been through our Snowcat Basic Operator Certification course, you just may get it.
You are driving a 1404 Thiokol Imp built in the early 1970’s. You have to cross a steep 20 degree side slope on the way to a remote site needing service and notice one of your tracks is very loose and hopping on the drive sprocket badly when you make tight turns. You wisely decide the loose track needs tension before attempting the side slope to avoid track loss. It is 10 degrees outside with winds of 30 miles hour and it is 2:10 in the afternoon (remember anyone in a snow cat after 3:30 is just asking the “snow gods” to punish them). Please explain what you need to do?
POWER IS MY FRIEND!
KEEP YOUR NOSE UP!
