actually I was just thinking that it takes a big man to be able to poke fun of himself, like others said we are laughing with you not at you. On the other hand I know someone who will remain nameless that can't take a joke about even the smallest thing, so your attitude is extremely refreshing.

Like Donna said you must be one helluva guy to come clean with that, Me personally would have left the ski sitting in the lot drove strait home and reported it stollen. But I like your attitude, you've got Moxie, whatever that is.

I have had two close stories.

Years ago had a seadoo and a wave runner. The ramp was only about a mile from the condo and was never over 25 mph. My brother and I didnt use tie downs, just put the pin through the hole in the front of the wave runner. About a block from home I noticed the wave runner getting ready to pass us on the passenger side of the truck. Let me tell you that thing was faster on the street than it was on the water. Im glad it was a POS and only 50 bucks to repair.

Second story. I was at party cove at the lake of the ozarks in dads boat getting the usual daddys boat comments but from a one armed body builder. Told him, dont you wish your daddy had a boat like this? Next thing you know Ive got a one armed body builder swimming after our boat and trying to get in to fight us. We had to beat this guy with a fender to get him off the side of the boat.

Oh yeah, also got in fight with a guy in a wheelchair at a strip club but Ill save that one for now. PS didnt know he was in a wheelchair at first (it was dark and my back was too him when it all started).

Im thinking you need a hobby that involves alot of padding.. ALOT of padding.

I gotta agree with Chrisk and Rainmn.. Towing jetskis with a Frieghtliner is just a bit of overkill.. But I know what you went through. Try backing up a dumptruck with a wood chipper or worse yet, log splitter on the back. Cant even see the thing coming around the dumpbed till its almost sideways.
