It’s a long stretch of road - cobbled together with weeds and fallen branches, the gravel turned to dust. Dragging a trailer across it will prove no simple task, especially with your pick-up already gasping for power. It can’t conquer the incline; it can’t rev through the muck; and it gives a threatening whine as you press the pedal, shuddering beneath the weight of a load.
