Default Man goes thru flood gate at Lake Austin

Here is one lucky guy. There are many times I stop where he was just watching boats go by. I always wondered what would happen if my motor would not start.

I saw that last night. Thats nuts.

They dont have much protection from the gates their either. At least the gates at mansfield dam(lake travis) are 100 feet under.

He is one lucky mofo
