Heres a story
On the way home from alberta my truck started making a grinding noise. So when I got home I switched to my old truck. Tue I shot a drake gaddie, 5 greenheads and a hen mallard. On wed I broke my cell phone and came down with the flu. I was so sick on thur I couldnt get out of bed all day. Made for a great thanksgiving. On friday I was still sick most of the day but I went to try to fill my cow tag that afternoon. While driving down an icy 2track I met another hunter on a blind corner and we had a head on collision. Smashed up the front of my truck. It was still drivable though so I headed home. While driving down the hwy at 60mph my hood popped up and folded over the roof of my truck. On Sat I took my boy out for a 30 min hunt and shot 5 greenheads and two drake widgeon. On sun morn I almost killed a cow but only had a shot a big 6x at 215 yards. That afternoon I went on a 5 min hunt and murdered a whitetail outa a ranchers backyard. This morning I took my regular truck to get the grinding noise looked at. When I arrived at the garage I noticed 2 things.
1. the mechanic wasnt there
2. the right front wheel assembly was on fire
luckily I had some water in the truck or it could have been even worse. Anything that could melt did and the tire is tilted at a 30 degree angle towards the truck. Should cost a couple grand to fix. Dont think Im gunna be doing much hunting the rest of the year.

....its like taking x-lax when you have a bad cough. It wont clear up your lungs, but it sure stops you from coughing
