The $575 oopsie.

Dateline: Adrian, Texas
The sun was in my eyes as I tried to make this turn. Totally unfocused on the task at hand I fell into a deep ravine and had to get a super-wrecker to pull me out. The good news.......It aint' my trailer. It's a sealed load that I cannot even open to inspect the damage if any. Going to Kentucky, I'll let you know of the carnage when they pop it open. It's 39,000 pounds of gourmet hot dogs btw.

As you can see, the D.O.T bumper (on the bottom rear of the trailer) that is supposed to keep peoples heads intact in a rear end collision kept the trailer from rolling over.

5'8'.......But I don't know how you would derive my height from a picture. A trailer is 13' 6". Also, all tall people have nasty looking asses.......all of them.

I see this once a week when the truckers that deliver to the Home Depot use the front entrance to the shopping center (clearly marked "Trucks don't even think about turning here").

Sorry about the faux pas. Glad your whip is undamaged.
