    Thanks guys. I was miserable cursing under my breath about the tires. I knew they needed replacing but it was bad timing etc and then this happens. Put a smile on my face to be alive! Lifes not too bad now haha!! Don't take it too seriously, nobody makes it out alive.

    Glad you're ok man! Wow what a scary site seeing that limb that close was. It brings it all into perspective that no matter what you do sometimes you might need a bit of intervention help. The Big Guy was looking out for ya, work hard, stay strong and stay safe!

    That's close!

    My Dad had a tree branch come in the cab of our T200 about 10 years ago when he was focusing on grading and it caught his ear and ripped it off... a little skin by the ear lobe was all that was still attached. Blood was everywhere.

    Appreciate it fellas. We all get wrapped up in work and get brought back to reality reallll quick. I'll grab a pic of my mustang that my dad blew out the top of the ROPS with a piece of concrete
