I can't believe that you just told 7319 OSO members that you did this.

When I was a younger person, my friends and I did similar. We used a 100' anchor line an a VW bettle. When the branch broke it yanked that VW half way across the back yard with the driver white as a ghost. Bent the VW up alittle. But, we laughed for hours.

We had too many Bud's and most were just out of Southeast Asia

"I'm a very, very dumb boy" you say?

I already knew this!!!!!

Dude, even I have never done this!!! And I've done my fair share of stupid human tricks. Check the junk yards for an entire rear hatch. There are several used parts lots around here. I can get you some numbers if you want.

I can see the look on Dee's face now!!!!!

Well at least it didn't take out the shed Claim the hatch or you will be out $500.00. I backed into my garage with mine open and it was a mess. Told the ins. co. the truth and they paid

That sucks I did not do this but I saw the results one very large tree leaning towards the lucky guys garage. They hooked his truck to the tree and started to cut tree was leaning towards the garage more.The idea of a tractor and hooking it to the front of the truck came up. Do you see where this is heading pull on the truck to pull on the tree then cut the tree. When they cut the tree it fell on the garage picked the truck up and turned it over on the top the tractor was ok everything else was trashed!!!!!!!!!!!! So be glad a broken back glass is all you done.

After years of warning my wife not to do it, I backed up the truck w/the horse trailer hooked up and the tailgait down. Crunch..and she was standing there when I did it. **** happens.
