I had mentioned last week I had to make a bonzai run from Texas to Michigan to take care of a few issues. Most of the trip went well till I was just south of Effinghan ill. Hitting a chunk hole cut out of the highway about 4 ft wide and the width of the land and about a ft deep.. front rims get bent along with blowing out both rear tires and screetching to a stop on the shoulder of the road,, along with several other cars and trucks. Apparently the state doesnt think its nessasary to put up a blockade or waqrning signs. So I get to sit for 2 hrs while road service hunts down 2 17 inch truck tires at 7;00 pm.. He finds one and we end up using my spare for the other side. I continue the trip slowly with front end vibration from bnt rims and get to my kids house,, I get parked and was just sitting inside chatting and spoiling thge grandkids, and the ole ticker decides to quit.. so the neighbors get excitment as an ambulance takes me to medical center and plug me into everything they can think of,, Feeling like acyborg... so 3 days of tests and meds and recoup. I get released.
Son in law now has to drive me back till my dr, in Texas gives me a release to drive again.. so my return road trip ,I will be the co-pilot..
My advice,,, dont do what i have done and go bonzai and attempt straight through driving,, apparently 24 hrs does have after effects. But Hey,, Im in good shape,, and will be back at my projects and tinkering in no time..
