Now that is a good video. I read through a couple pages of comments. A lot of viewers wondered why not all tires were chained up. From what I could see, the outside dual on the front tandem was chained as well as the inside dual on the rear tandem. And extra chains hung at the ready from the font bumper.
This makes perfect sense when you consider flotation. If all were chained, and all started spinning, they could dig straight down and stop all forward or rearward movement. With half of the tires not chained, one gains some valuable flotation. And each chained tire is traversing fresh high ground. It looks like a logical compromise probably arrived at from experience.
