    Default The dumbest thing I've ever done....

    Going bunny hunting in the morning. My wife will be out shopping for black friday sales so I figured I'd get everything ready tonight so when she returns from shopping we could just hook up and go.

    My throttle cable has a little water in it so I didn't want to store it outside to freeze. So I figure I'd just load up the wheeler on the trailer and then put the trailer in the garage to keep the wheeler warm. That way tomorrow I could just "hook up and go"...right...

    As you can see, I didn't think that one through all the way. And now the wheeler is sitting outside . So AKDSLDOG, if I can't make it tomorrow you'll know why....my throttle cable may be frozen...

    I'm a dumbazz...

    I can't see the pics over here, but I imagine it can't be good...

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    I tore the fender off my dually a couple years back, on a post for the driveway chain. But I did not post a picture.

    I think "4 letter explicative deleted" is a completely adequate phrase.

    You think he got it started and was gone before the wife seen it?

    I think AKSled is covering for him.

    that's what I usually do, but I wanted to save every possible minute...that's what I get...over the years I've actually lamented the fact that I didn't have tall doors on the garage...I've complained that I couldn't fit the wheeler in the garage on the trailer before, so it is not like I didn't know it wouldn't fit....it was just truly a 'head up my azz' moment...lol...i was too busy watching my mirrors....

    surprisingly not too much...the only damage was to the roof... specifically, where the brackets connect to the molded roof...so now there is a large hole in the roof...kinda sucked to have water dripping on my head all day today.......like someone upstairs was telling me every 30 seconds "hey, your a dumbazz"...

    nothing a little duct tape cant fix...
