Our story was in 2009, while geocaching. We were at a park. I pulled the car behind a pickup with a mattress in the bed of the truck. The truck was backed in and the mattress stuck up over the tailgate. There was a concrete parking slab between us. The story goes- he had someone park in front of him where he couldn't get out. He looked in the rearview mirror and didn't see the civic. He proceeded up over the concrete barrier and came down on the hood of our car. It didn't do anything to the front end but wrinkled the hood something fierce. It was just a young college kid and poor thing thought he was going to jail.

Here is the light reflecting off the hood.


And another angle:

Three weeks after i got my mazda miata (15 years ago), i went to the bank.... Drive in window, as usual.... There were two cars in front of me, but there was a guide wall on both sides.... Well the cat in front if me decided to back up out if the line. Yep... Got me... Mine was so new i didnt even know where the horn was.

Btw i had already discovered it was not tall enough to trigger the drive through window at the burger place...

RVM99 hanging out, waiting for the next big GC, got update on RV Thursday that all the mechanical maintenance is completed, just waiting on the cosmetic stuff now. And I guess it's been a while since I devoured some Lobstahs so that's definitely on my mind...

Edit: I'm sure I'll say it again but Tuesday Mister! That's YOUR day!!!

I've always enjoyed driving, it's in my blood I believe. Ever since driving with the RV, it's taken on a whole new meaning. I mean, I really enjoy driving it, stopping for breaks or a shower or some sleep. It's like a life's dream come true Really can't wait till the day when it's a full-time task and I can enjoy all that stuff I'm passing by these days

As others have expressed, my since condolences go out to you Dwayne and Shara. Lost my dad a couple decades ago, still miss him and think of him as I'm sure you will too with your dads memories. Best wishes to you both.

#59 checking in. Not much new in our world. Lost a gal bladder a couple months back, our dog died at the same time, and it is work work work!
Good news is I go back to retirement at the end of the month, although my boss still wants me as a spare.
We got a new Jack Russell pup a few weeks back.
We are taking the month of August and going to Alberta for a couple weelks and then down through Montana, Idaho Washington, and back home.
After that I go in for Cataract surgery 1 Sept. Oh Yay!

Condolences to Dwayne and Shara, losing a parent is one of the hardest things in life.

I hear Steve is going in for some procedure but did not read back far enough. Best of luck old Buddy. Isn't getting old fun?
I am wondering what is going to fall off next!!

Megan (AKA Iron Woman) and Hayden were quite a team. Meg even held her phone so hubby overseas could hear Haydens first cry.
No buttons popped. Expando shorts!
Thanks so very much my dear friends!
