LOST a DODGE PICKUP TRUCK Sunk in the Columbia River!


(cable creaking) (winch whirring) – Whoa! – I got it! – Oh, there goes my bags. (Upbeat rock music) – We are back at the Corbett boat ramp where if you saw the last video we did, The S10 pickup, all of this was all under water like, we had like a big
flood came through here, 10 feet higher. We’re going after a pickup truck today, a Dodge. The Dodge is facing about that direction. Next to it is a Toyota pickup, also sitting on it’s
wheels right next to it. Down river, is a car that’s upside down. So what we’re gonna do right now is we’re going to mark the Dodge, get the lift bags on it, get it floating. Anyway, if you guys don’t know Jonathan, he was on the Corvette video. Here, I’ll leave a link to that one if you’ve not seen the Corvette video. I think that was the first viral video you ever been involved in.
– Right. – Could not be doing it without Jonathan and other volunteers like himself so sir, thank you for being here today. – Absolutely. – We’re gonna suit up
and go get in the water. Since we’re at the Columbia
River with the current, we’re actually gonna be taking
the line down to mark it, but tying it off as
well to Jarret’s truck. Jarret here, by the way,
is a fan and a viewer, so Jarret, thanks for coming out today and hanging out with us.
– Yes. – Just drop us a note if
you’re in the Portland area or really anywhere across the US because we are taking the show
on the road and traveling. We’re going to Colorado,
Kentucky, Canada this year, Michigan, Oklahoma, – Jeez. – Georgia, Florida. Like, we’re all over this year, You never know where we’re gonna be, so if you wanna volunteer, drop me a note, and we’ll get you on the map. On that note, in the water we go Jarret. (water splashing) (upbeat music) – Audio, audio check
check check, audio check. Good, good. (water splashing) (breathing) Start heading this
direction now downstream. (breathing) Let’s see if we can run into it. (breathing) – There’s, there’s a truck. (breathing) – I don’t know what that one is. (water bubbling) (breathing) – That’s not the one we’re looking for, here’s an engine, (breathing) and parts of it. (breathing) Oh, it’s a truck. (breathing) It’s a big heavy duty truck. We’ll come back for that one later. Let’s keep going downstream. Oh, Oh, Oh, I just ran into something. What did I run into here? (breathing) Oh yeah, I think this is the Dodge. It’s blue. Quite a bit of silt in here as well. (breathing) That’s the dodge. Okay. – And there’s the Toyota. (breathing) I’m gonna hook this
rope to the back of it, (breathing) and then we’ll swing the bags (breathing) at the back of it and flip it up and around. (chains rattling) (breathing) And then have the tow truck
pull it up from there. (breathing)
(chains rattling) That’ll be the best way to do this one. (water bubbling)
(breathing) Okay. Yep, let’s head on up. (breathing) Up from the rope here, up from the Dodge, is a one ton Dually pick up farm truck. I’m gonna say, late
seventies, early eighties. – Kinda my impression too, yeah. – Yeah, with a great big kind
of a barn door flatbed to it. – Yep. – With a whole bunch
of engine parts in it. – So, we’re gonna come back with that one. I’ll put you in charge of the bag. – Okay. – I’ll take a tank and a chain with me. – Okay. – You go prep, meet be
back at the back wheel. – Okay. (upbeat music) – Hey look, there’s Jonathan. Hey Jonathan. – Hey. (truck door closes) – The downside to all
this right now, Jarret, is that we only have access to one wheel to actually get any lift. In addition to that, the rope is kinda like going downstream, and then back upstream so as soon as Jonathan comes up, we’re gonna see what we can do to tighten up this rope a little bit. In fact, we might just
have you move the truck that way a little bit. Once we do that, then we’ll
get two more bags on it, should be floating. The rest of it’s up to the
tow truck once they get here. That’s the plan. Waiting on Jonathan. How’s it looking? – It’s interesting. – Is it full? – Mostly. – I’m gonna unfasten it
from the truck real quick, I’m gonna hold it right here, have you bring it to the
driver’s side of the truck, we wanna make sure that it
stays on the upstream side. (truck engine running) – Good. It’s down around the front window. – Okay, that’s perfect. Is it? 41? That’s what it’s saying right here. – Oh, I believe it. – At our deepest, yeah. – Yeah. – Or, if you wanna see the
depth and the temperature as you’re watching the video, in the bottom right hand side if you’ve not already noticed that, The Paralenz here records
everything you need to know. Yep, so how deep are we, how cold is it? (upbeat music) (breathing) – All right, back to the truck. (upbeat music) (breathing underwater) (upbeat music) (water bubbling) (breathing) (upbeat music) (waves roaring) – Well then, we got two bags on it, they’re floating. That’s one more bag which
will be up and around. Once we get all that done, then we will just wait
for our tow truck to come, winch it out, and we should be good to go. (waves roaring)
(upbeat music) (breathing underwater) – There we go. (breathing) Turn that tank on. (upbeat music) (breathing) – Okay, there it goes, it’s gonna go. Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go. (breathing) – Okay, the truck is
standing on it’s nose. (breathing) That’s good news. – I don’t think it’s coming at all. Water bubbling) (breathing) – It wants to come up. The back is up, it’s trying to float. I don’t know if we have
enough lift bags on it though. – Yeah well, actually pulling on the rope, – Yeah, – we can pull in about
15, 10, 15 feet of rope. – Oh perfect. – And you can feel it spinning
as you’re pulling it in. – Hopefully, we can just
get it on it’s wheels. – That’s, yeah, exactly. – My lift bags, currently, are a failure. But the bags themselves
are like incredible, – Right. – Just the whole strapping system, So it’s back to the
drawing board on that one. Let that be a life lesson, don’t give up. We’re gonna get it. But normally we would have
the truck completely floating. But because they’re like clamshelling up, – Right, – ’cause they’re not spread, – They’re not spread out, yeah. – So stay tuned, For some more – What’s the immortal words? – Try, try better, fail, try
better, fail, try better again? – Words of wisdom from Jonathan. – Yeah. (laughs) So we’re gonna get a pretty good pull as we’re trying to pull
it in just by hand. See, we’ve almost pulled
twenty feet in just by hand. – That’s a pretty good movement. – So it should make it real
easy for that tow truck now. – Oh yeah. I mean it’s on it’s nose, so. – Yeah,easy. – Before you go, I got something for ya. So this is Dave Mack, he’s

tow truck down there today. – What’s with that, is
that part of your costume or whatever? – What do I got,I got mud on me? Is that mud? Oh, I was standing behind the tow truck as it was flinging mud. – I’m going against everything
I’ve ever been taught. – Right. – By coming through this. I’mma try it, I’ll get through there. – This is Elite Towing, these
guys are incredible people. They’re out here on their own dime, volunteering their time, their services, their drivers aren’t getting paid, their company’s not getting paid to help us clean up the environment. Could not be doing this without them. Use the discount code, YouTube, with this phone number,
right here on the screen. If you’re anywhere in the
Portland Metro Vancouver market, they will give you an additional 10% off. Plus the special price on top of that. – Yep. – Good guys, they’re out
here volunteering their time. So, no problem right? Whatever happens, all right, just know that whatever
happens, I’ll record it. – Yeah, oh, I know. I know you’re waiting. – You know, peer pressure’s a real thing. (laughter) – Yeah. – You got it, don’t worry about it. (truck engine roaring) – See, that’s what Brandon did. – Yeah. (laughs) – Close your eyes and punch it. – Good job. – Yeah, we got it in there. You know, when we first started this, we joked, I joked candidly with them about pulling 25 cars out of the river. We had no clue we would be
pulling 25 cars out of the river. And this is number 25. When you’re committed to
doing the right thing, time flies men. – I think today’s 31, maybe 32. – A lot, which is good. – Yeah. Hey, how do you like all of our new, – I love it man. – Straps. – I love it. – Donated by another tow
company that supported us, Pardo’s Towing, I’ll
leave the link right here, incredible people. Supporters of ours, donated four of these and some other underwater
recovery systems, so go check them out. Of course, if you need a
tow, somewhere in Ohio. All right, you’re good to go. (winch creaking) – Whoa! Hey! (upbeat music) – Whoo – Oh no. – Oh, there goes my bags. (giggling) (water splashing) – We had to use an aircraft the last time we lost
float bags on the Columbia, took two days. (Upbeat music) – As you saw, we just ended
up losing the lift bags. – I think with everything that was attached to that rear tire, once it started moving, and
we started actually pulling, it might have got wedged right next to that other truck right next to it. – The Toyota? – The Toyota, and as you’re trying to
wrench it off of that Toyota, it just finally just popped maybe just popped that tire off. – We’re gonna chock it up to
another learning experience is really how we’re
gonna chock this one up. Today’s gonna be dedicated
to breast cancer awareness. Is it safe to say that everybody
here has been affected by somebody that’s had cancer of some sort? – Yep. – I’ve lost a mother in law. And what we actually have
here is a letter that came in from a viewer. Keith and family, his wife Tiffany, and his son even drew me like a little diver’s
rule flag down there. I can’t help everybody, but with the power of this platform, with YouTube, with
Facebook, you the viewers, Tiffany, her husband Keith, their son, they don’t have any insurance, and Tiffany just started chemo. So, I can’t shoutout all GoFundMe’s, but, let’s do what we can for this family. I will leave a link in
the description below, you can check out their updates, and you can decide for yourself if you would like to help out the family. Me personally, I’m gonna donate $50. See if you can match that. Even if you can just do $1 or $5, anything’s going to help this family. Do what you can to help out, and Tiffany, Keith, I hope
this helps you guys out. Thanks for being supporters of ours and thanks to everybody else
for watching what we do. We’ll come back to it, but we wanna be respectful
of Doug, and Elite’s Time. We really appreciate them coming out. So really, on that note, – We tried. – We tried. – That’s it for now. Later later, bye bye. (upbeat music)

  1. We should do a collab, pulling out rusty cars from the offroad areas here in miami. Could be a crazy video, check us out. Were trying to show a different perspective of offroading. SAVE THE BUSH!

  2. That truck you found first looks a lot like one of those Dodge trucks from the 1930s.

  3. Another outstanding video. This never gets old to me. Still looking forward to seeing powerwashing the buick. Great work on cleaning up these waterways. I'm sure you will get the dodge next time.

  4. The toy vehicle demo is very helpful. Visibility is limited but we can picture what you are dealing with.

  5. Y’all are so manly! There needs to be more guys like you!🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐😀😀😀

  6. Glad you guys have fun too wow there’s a lot of trucks and cars in the river 👍💌 Ohio tow trucks their awesome got us out of the mud 👍 we was mud running , God bless the cancer patients 💌💌

  7. Once again another awesome video! I live in southern Indiana about 30 minutes north of Louisville KY. Let me know if you need anything and keep up the great work guys thanks 👍👌

  8. Another great video and a lot of fun even though we didn't get the truck………………….. YET!!!!

  9. How do all these cars you find end up in the middle of a river. Surely not all are dumps. Do they get swept down river by floods? Be interesting to know

  10. Would love to come and watch you do your thing. I'm in the Stone Mountain area no telling what's in their lake's. Give us a ring when you're headed this way.

  11. Kinda wish my crew and I had been able to go see you try this removal, when you told me about it. Still looking forward to seeing in person you remove a vehicle/vehicles from one of the local rivers here!

    Thanks for letting me know when you did.

    Daniel

  12. Tough going these last couple of times, I guess it's not all rust and glory!

  13. I can't imagine how much money the insurance companies must have lost in all these frauds

  14. Oh no, I hope this isn't the start of a dry spell of no pull outs, awesome work yall are doing

  15. Jared your 0-2 now on recoveries. This location is tough. How about you video map the vehicles and forward it to the Corp of Engineers. Explain the significant danger to commercial navigation. They will bring the big barge and claw and you can move on to a millpond or kiddie pool with matchbox cars and get your confidence back. Lol. Seriously, you and the team are doing amazing work in very challenging conditions. It would have been so easy to get entangled in that truck. Let's get back to winning. Carry on..

  16. After watching a lot of gold prospecting vids,I see that when u disturb the silt/sea floor,you have tiny shiny bits of what I think may be gold 😉🤞🏻🤞🏻
    Or pyrite of course. But,then I’m often a fool hahaa

  17. Do you think you will be able to get this one out still ?
    And the one next to it ?

  18. Great video. Till next time yall.
    Power to cancer fighters🙏❤👊💪

  19. I hate open water when I think about it? When I shut my brain off, it's fine!

  20. If you're going to be in Michigan let me know I could possibly let you use my boat it's not very big but it does the job

  21. That was the original highway before the dams and they than turned it into a boat ramp because if you're on a boat and your out there on low tide you can see the road traveling below the river or if you look on google earths Clock you can see the highway traveling underwater as well as Boardman along the the river too all the way to Arlington as well as wallula in the right spot you can spot the original cement bridge underwater as well as the original highway before the dams.

  22. This job seems to be the most challenging , special thanks for the awesome tow company's for helping

  23. Come to SoCal…Irvine has really nice cars…I'm sure one of them has to be underwater! 🙂

  24. If you guys are near Pittsburgh PA I have 4 daughters with special needs that likes watching your videos

  25. Great channel !!! Thanks from Sweden, but why are the clips so short? you must have so much material from every save? Looking forward to the next and next…. greatings Markus

  26. Where in Canada will you be heading to? My nephew is an accomplished diver who has spent time in Oceania the past few years and is now back home for a bit.

  27. Are you guys planning any trips to North Carolina? I would love to come out and watch. I would help with anything as well but I don’t know if I would be much use, lol. Thanks for another great video!

  28. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better……. Beckett

  29. I'm in Winston Salem nc would be glad to help . i know where some stuff in to in its in a lake off the 150 Bridge in Statesville nc about 45 minutes from me . and in Winston there is a rock quarry but they made into a park that has a bunch of a from what I was told has a bunch of equipment in the bottom of it when they hit a water vein it just flooded everything and they couldn't get the equipment out in time

  30. Not very often do you see so much good in one place/group. Elite towing, all of you guys rock. Thank you!!

  31. I can't believe that over 10 thousand views and only 881 gave the thumbs up. what kind of viewers are you???? give it a thumbs up.. you watched it so you had to enjoy it..

  32. I hope anyone who can help this family, does. The reality of the lack of funds to pay for cancer treatments usually results in lack of treatment. Breaks my heart.

  33. I know where there is a S10 pickup in a little lake in Grand Rapids Michigan . Its about 25 foot deep and very clear water.

  34. My aunt just had a breast removed today on friday the 13th…..cancer!!!

  35. Win some, lose some. Get them next time. Oh what ever happened to the John Deer Tractor you pulled out with the sprayer system on it.

  36. Wonder if that Dodge is a cummins would add alot of weight to the front end. Be glad to lend a hand when ya'll come to Colorado. Would be neat to see in person. I promise to leave the rods and reels in the truck till your done.

  37. Im out of Portland and willing to volunteer in anyway. I have a lifted on 37s 2500hd diesel to
