    Well Friday the 13th took its toll on me. Within a couple hour's time I has my Echo backpack blower stolen off the ramp of my trailer and Crashed my truck into the back of the a Jeep Liberty on the Interstate.

    I was traveling around 60 mph and everyone started slamming on brakes and with all the weight of my trailer and equipment I could not stop in time on a newly paved road. Didnt damage the Jeep due to it having a spare tire that absorbed the hit. I busted the grill, headlight mount and bent the hood all up on my truck.

    I was charged with "driving too fast for conditions". :angry:

    I just had my 2 week old br420 and a fs80r stolen off my trailer sunday. The neighbor watched the guy take it and never called the cops I hope I can return the favor to her some day, she better never ask me to cut her lawn.

    tsh, i feel your pain. i totalled a G35 infiniti last week, my new trailer has electric brakes. i strongly suggest adding it to your trailer if you don't got it already.
