    A friend of mine got 9 elk at one time, that was left laying there, did not know if some had made it away from the scene. Even with the herd bumper it was major damage, but it would still roll on it's on. I see trucks totalled by moose every year, even with the big moose gooses.

    I had just bought my fiesta and was driving home at dusk when I encountered an Amadillo. I swerved to straddle it as I could have in my pick up and that darn car was so low it got hung up. That Amarillo was still cussing me after I moved on.

    I ran over a 12 foot alligator ripping across 75 between Naples and Miami doing about 90 in my 80 Monte Carlo back in 84!

    Like running over a parking block


    Ripped the dual exhaust off.

    I hit enough love bugs crossing the sabine river on I-10 that I barely cleared the bridge before I had to stop and clean it, if bugs count.
    I passed by a little pond right before dark, just south of minot ND once and had to stop and get 1426 layers of mosquitos off the windshield so I could see once too. The bad part was I was delivering in minot and going to get their after dark, so I had just stopped and cleaned the windshield, so I wouldn't have any trouble reading the street signs. lol

    HAW HAW HAW HAW.

    Anyhow how does 5 deer strike you? We were in a farm zone and had them running with us. They were actually faster than we were by a little bit which created a situation. We knew they wanted across the road we were on, but ###### if they are going to do it across our bumper. One buck and four does.

    Lucky Buck... gets all the fun.

    Come into McAlester OK from the north sometime on their US route. There is about a mile of lake before you reach the town. It's about 5 gallons of bug fluid a mile just getting through there. Very good people there, Anything that goes Boom taking out these terrorists and bad guys you can thank them there.

    I escaped from bedroom one night at 18 months. I could not get back in until Morning. Father almost stepped on me going to work. (That would have been bad) anyway I was covered in layers of skeeters by then. They tell me I needed about 10 days in the hospital until the blood and so on got re-balanced from that problem.

    To this day the skeeters don't like the taste of me. Thankfully.
