I stand corrected.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Hey Ed, speaking of stuck trucks and things, have you ever watched Highway Thru Hell?

It follows a set of Canadian heavy wrecking companies and they seem to get trucks in some really "interesting" situations

No, I never really watched it. I have seen little snips now and then of trucks on the ice over the years.

It's funny, thinks like Highway Thru Hell, Ice Road Truckers, Heavy Haulers and Outback truckers (road trains in the Australian bush) are becoming quite popular over here

This looks like the house I spent a week in when I was a kid, except it was at the mouth of a hollar and surrounded by woods. It was down by Kentucky Lake. My uncle had bought the place, but I don't know from who, I just know whoever lived there before he got it was running a still. There was a huge pile of corn mash behind the house, and it smelled really BAD. My uncle sold the place to the TVA since they getting ready to build Lake Barkley, and his place was between the lakes.
My mom and 2 aunts decided it would be a great idea for us to vacation at this place for about a week and clean the place up a little.
Actually this house is much nicer than the one we were in. It had all kinds of junk and trash in and all around the house.
It was a memorable vacation. Not my favorite, but memorable.

I liked the line that Santa Anna said in the series "Texas Rising", "If I owned both hell and Texas, I would rent out Texas and live in hell". I kinda think that's how it turned out for Santa Anna.

I was watching some Cop show today.  THey pulled over a guy, said "have you had anything to drink?".  He said "yeah, a six pack"... Cop said "you've drunk a six pack?  When did you have your last beer?"  Guy said, "Oh, about 20 minutes ago...".  Cop said, "well, OK... You be careful now... you shouldn't be drinking and driving".  
Only in Texas...

Ha! Years ago in 1978 the same thing happened to me! I got caught speeding on Hwy 288 near Richwood in Brazoria County on my way to Angleton to go chase girls up at Dance World....
