Default Dam Truckers

This is what a 3 foot by 4 foot sheet of ice can do when it flies of a transport trailer. Scared the crap out of me at 70 mph I tell ya!

Wow that was close man. Glad you are ok. Just remember how many times you see some lazy a-hole in a car that has only pushed the snow off the windshield and driven down the road with just a slit in the window. Makes me wish we could just ***** slap them.

I doubt he knew. The truck was 300 yrds ahead and 3 lanes right of me. I just saw the sheet coming and closed my eyes.
The rear view mirror flew off and smacked me in the forehead and shattered. I couldn't see to get a plate. I just wanted to get the truck stopped and regain my self control

That's amazing...Once again, glad you're okay. Things like that can take many courses.

Too close for comfort! Glad your OK! Looks like one last blast of snow here today.
Hope to see you at the run this year, June 28th. (If I can get enough sponsors! A little tough this year!)
