When they say 45MPH MAX, they mean it.  When they say 5000LB MAX, they really don't mean it.

It was like driving on ice the whole way from Kent, the rain did not help, the traffic however did.  I would get to whipping and losing the ass end, my buddy would hit the front brakes on the truck and I would mash the throttle.  This had to happen probably 100 times on the ride home.  

3 hrs from Kent to the LCR.

Agreed.



Thank God.

It looks like the drive was filled with a whole lot of 'hold my beer and watch this' moments.



Did you film it?  That would make a great YouTube video.  Heck - you could've been famous!

At least you got a new rape van.

I have found that the impact of traffic cones adds not only stability to the vehicle, but also to the friendship.

Damn, that is scary. After my experience in Puyallup, that is a lot more exposure to legal and civil liabilities than I would care to expose myself to.

I believe your story came to mind during the drive home.

Put a 460 in it, if I can find one and put a flatbed on it.

The ONLY thing I can think of what he wants to do is this

I broke a rental U-haul once....10k lbs of cast iron in the back did not agree with it, well either that or sliding it sideways into a snow bank.

What were you doing with 10k of cast iron?

How many man hole covers was that?

Hauling it around in the back of a rented U-Haul truck.....



But that is not important right now.

I sold it 3 days before I bought the truck because I had no use for it at the time.
