That sucks man...To some they'll say it's only a plow truck. To us it's our office up to sixteen hours a day. Did you have it all tricked out?

1st and foremost i can be sad for the loss of a truck only because everyone got out safe. It was an International. I agree in 2 years it will mostly be forgotten but that doesnt take away the sting right now. Working for a school district, while I love my job and what I do, it can be very difficult to get something like this that was able to do so many different jobs that it made life easier for all and also safer. Time will tell if the insurance company does right or not. Oh yea, and my other office has been a 2011 1ton chevy so working out of a truck is nothing new to me lol

Load that one ton with sand and drive it like you stole it. They'll have a pony in your stall in no time :yes:
They make those corn binders everyday :beer:

Might be careful shooting any of those beasts lol they might take offense and squish ya, dec says if you can stand the weather they are found in and successfully take 1 down it's yours lol. I would warm though when you try to sneak up behind them they are know to " blast" some hard white substance at you. They also change direction when least expected

HAHAHAHA You got to love that blast button... I can hit it without even looking down. I had some yahoo come right up behind me on a four whealer so close I lost him in my mirror. Yup I hit the blast and he headed for the ditch right now :evilbanana:
