My favourite retrieve story was when a club member was asked to take a trailer many miles to pick up the aircraft. He did so. When he got to the landing site the trailer was opened up - only to find it contained a sofa and two armchairs.

Variants exist where the trailer had a glider in, or was the wrong trailer...

Gl;iding stories

Very funny, that last one Dan. I too have had a retrieve on a very short rope. Fortunately it must have been my 6 or 700th tow, but even so I found the short rope a tricky thing to handle. The tuggy must have known he could get out of that field. I was being towed by a TIger which isn't anywhere near 260 HP!
