Loading a Tank with a Winch

This video was taken up on the northern slope of Alaska where oil workers depend upon daily shipments of fresh, drinkable water to shower, shave, and drilling services. Because business runs on money, how do you get the least amount of personnel and equipment to do the job? A tractor trailer flatbed truck equipped with a 20,000 lb winch apparently does the trick. Now this trick is only good for short distances, but technique is everything. And in the Alaska wilderness, replacement tanks (and trucks) can be hard to come by.
