My friend, to say the least, a rookie, in his spare time enjoys driving our dept's junker 3rd out engine around town. He rumbles around in the flourescent green, dumptruck chassis quite a bit. Our town has a few hills and apparently one instance, when he was out driving, he found out how steep they are! En route back to the station, about a half a block away, he gets contacted over the radio by one of the on-duty guys stating that an RP is sort of suggesting that there's about 150 feet of 2 1/2" hose laying in the street back a way. Embarassed, he cranked the engine around and went to retrieve his lost equipment.
