yea me 2 but it never happens....it happend the night after i got back from my dads funeral and i was quite distraught i have since learned how to cope with my inner demons in a healthier manner. i plead the young dumb and troubled amendment. i have since matured and now lay off the booze and try to grow my business as my familys welfare depends upon it.
my insurance fixed the damn thing for 17 grand instead of totaling it out. i owed less than that. i am reminded each day of that night and would hate to regret filling lawnsite in on that wreck and perhaps discourage drunk driving if the ending result is ridicule

Yikes dude, I just read your story thread, wow your in a tough position. It sounds like you hopefully learned your lesson, alcohol can destroy families. Keep working hard, sounds like you have a pretty good biz going for your age! That's a sick chevy btw!! I have a 6.0 too, I love mine, but the gas mileage does suck. Keep up the good work, good luck to you and your family! Let me know if your ever up in my neck of the woods.
