What a mess. BIG MESS It;s Baaaaaaaaaaaack
« on: March 31, 2011, 08:44:14 PM »



I can't post the pictures because I can't connect my laptop to the internet. 
 
WHAT KIND OF STATE IS THIS LEABURN!
 
Guys.  It was great meeting Rich and Ed this week.  Unfortunately, after they left, I had a serious porblem.
 
I had an accident!  Of all the people!  I can't post the pictures because my internet adaptor got broken in the process.  So I am still here at Chris's house.
 
The truck has at least 5,000 dollars worth of damage on it, is barely diveable.  The right tire has a gash and the drag link is bent.  The bumper, hood, right front fender are totaled. . . the right door is questionable.  I didn't get the vital parts, or the frame, but with no lights on the right side, I can't drive at night too well.  The right fender si sticking out 6".
 
Tomorrow I hope to have all this internet fixed so I can put up a picture.  Hopefully I will be  heading home tomorrow.  I have cancelled the rest of the trip.
 
I'm OK  
 
 Felt like I hit a pothole, until I saw this big pipe laying across the hood.  The sun blinded me for a moment and the road suddenly ended.

I called you back after I missed your call.
That's a long ways away from home with a damaged rig.

That sucks... but for Steve's sake I hope it IS a prank.

Being that far from home with a messed up ride would not be pleasant.

Keep us posted and keep on truckin... you'll get through it.

It must have happened right after I left, around 4:15pm. It ain't a joke, just called and talked to Chris, where he is. Truck is getting some front end parts replaced at the dealership, fender and hood waiting for installation over at Chris' (azblackhemi). Turned the wrong way, hit the wipers to clear the bugs and got blinded by the sun as it was setting in the west. I think his pride is hurt more than he is, but all is, no joke, just a little bent up but OK.

Glad he is OK! Metal can be fixed, people, not always so much.

If it's any consolation, if the sign and fence had been any higher the windshield would have been busted, too.
Glad you are OK and all that, if, next time you can't remember which way is left and which way is right, stick your index fingers up in the air and  put the tips of your thumbs together. The one that looks like an "L" is left.
 
Give me a call if you need anything.

You know that there would have been an easier way to see the kind of work Chris does. Seriously though, glad to hear you are OK.
