OK, who did I pass the opposite way

on I-95 on Dec 29th AM in FL or GA, heading s/b with his TV antenna up, Class A, an older model..

I tried to hail him on my CB with negative results.

Hope someone beeped at him to alert him/her...

That was probably Billy Bob. He leaves it up to create lift and to reduce his gas mileage. I tried it once, but my batwing was gone when I arrived, not sure what happened

I am prone to doing such things so I have a system of flags, tennis balls, and notes I use to warn me that things are undone...I have an orange tennis ball used primarily to mark your parking space in the garage as a device to warn me my TV Antenna is up.

When the ball is hanging down the TV antenna is up.

I wrap the cb mic around my gear shift if my dish or antenna is up. Tallulah always does an outside check/ walk around before we move.

I have a bright yellow cord that I store wrapped around the antenna handle when down. Then when we put the antenna up we wrap it around the steering wheel. So far it's worked every time.

I slip the ignition key ring around the handle of the antenna when it is up. It makes it hard to not think about the antenna before driving off.

X2 with the ignition key ring. Key down, antenna comes down. Antenna up, key ring goes on crank handle.

Never fails. (but could if you get distracted just like anything else.) Best to look up during the walk-around (you do a walk around, right?)

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

One other thing you can do is get a blank ignition key, put in ignition switch and put a tag on it with a note. To check tv antenna or take a walk around, etc. whatever suits you. When go go to start engine, you have e reminder.

Yes, and I am disappointed in myself when I find something I missed. I actually like to walk around from a distance. I walk 30-50 feet away and look around. It allows me to see everything at once, hoses, cords, antenna. It also allows me to look around at where I am about to go, typically our first moves and last moves in a trip are the tightest areas of operation.

I am also a bit over the top as all my locks are setup in one direction either vertical or horizontal, therefore I can visually assess what is locked and what isn't. It drives me nuts the the manufacturers put them in, in whatever direction they fell out of the packaging.

Yes, like five times before I begin my leaving checklist...I'm a bit OCD when it comes to things like triple checking...
