A good skill to know incase you need to move something large and do not have a 'modern' winch. Also known as a '2 pole winch'.

Morning Sunshine:
cool!  thanks for sharing.

Makes me realize that I know little about the capabilities of simple machines, and my kids know even less.  Now I think i need to have a month long focus on simple machines and their uses in our homeschool!

That's pretty cool. There were a few times when I was younger, and hadn't dropped the coin for a winch yet, where this would have come in very handy! Had to get really tricky and MacGyver some ways to get unstuck in the woods more times than I wish happened. Some of them pretty dangerous, haha.

iam4liberty:
Very cool.  Had not seen that method before.

Did anyone else notice the 2k thumbs down on the video?  "Some people's children."
