new truck meets tire
the company that I work for gave me a new 2007 F550 with a 40' bucket on it a week ago. On Monday I was working on the shoulder of the highway when a tire came off a simi trailer and slammed the back of the truck I was in the bucket comeing down when it hit; we were lucky no one got hurt.

Scarey stuff. Glad you were OK.
Gives me flashbacks to when I was in college. I was coming home for Xmas break and a truck tire came bounding over the center divider of the interstate. It ended up nailing the front of my car dead center. Went into the bumper into the grill into the radiator and ended up busting a motor mount and screwing the engine. If I hadn't hit the break in time, it would have came through the windshield. Of course the owner was so nice as to not stop!

It was I-270 in St. Louis. He was riding the bucket like his GTX - superman style...
Look at the pictures from MudBug and you'll see why Mark needs a 40 foot bucket. It definately needs to be "Supersized"
BTW, He's been trying to obtain one of those redlight devices for "testing purposes". For some reason the company and the cities won't let go of them.

If it weren't for bad luck he'd have no luck at all...
Last week he broke his finger changing kegs at the concession stand.
Week before that his GTX took a dump.
At Mudbug got a ticket for "Dangerous Operation of a Watercraft".
Last year, broke his arm raking leaves...

When raking leaves on a hill, it's safer to fall on your butt than to let all your weight land on your wrist...
