Default HotBoat had a little car accident

HotBoat was on his way to house in Lake George with his father to do some work. As we are having a snow storm this first day of spring, he had a little spin out on the New york Thruway and put a few dents and dings in his Dodge Pick Up.

I think I figured out how it all happened. You see, he is relatively new to this High-Performance boat gig and he also attended Skaterfest last fall. Paul is one that likes to learn but he seems to have taken T2x's advice and wisdom a wee bit literally. Hot Boat, when T2x says SPIN 'EM OUT he meant the PROPS not your TRUCK!

Gkad you and dad are okay and the truck to. Just had to have a little fun witcha!

Shane

Okay, FIRE back I deserve it!

Like they say "loose is fast" ......NOT!!


I don't know what happened we were just going on a strait stretch of highway in cruse control and for some reason the back end came around and I was going down the road sideways. I had the wheel turned all the way to the left and taped the gas to gain control and it spun around in the opposite direction sending us down the median backwards at about 50 mph until we hit the guard rail. if I never would of hit the gas I would of ended up in front of a tractor trailer and god knows what would of happened...... 5 minutes later another car did the same exact thing at the same spot. It must of been black ice We are all fine except for the truck. Thank god I had my seat belt on.
