Sorry to hear about the near miss Paul, I drove the beddie all the way while Julian slept Rolling Eyes she never missed a beat, and was going too quick for the wildlife on the side of the road to hit the big box on the highway Twisted Evil

But must give credit where credit is due, tucked in between a convoy of trucks and let them take the risks, and get me home safe 3 cheers for the interstate truckies

i drove to Elizabeth S.A for a guy one night going across the Hay plains doing about 110 in a semi and a big red stopped in the middle of the road. i was told not to back off or turn as you run the risk of putting the truck on its side at that speed. so i lined him up in the centre to the bull bar and belted him and he didnt get back up and the centre of the bull bar was bent and touching the grill. got to S.A. and got the bar cut off and came home in the day

Down here there is a road kill cafe, you take what you hit depends what they are. I hit in me van a 9 foot gator did not fase it busted front flares bent bumper broke tie rod end, the worst part was sitting 3 hours on gator higway waiting for some one stop for help. Before any other gators came looking for chump food.
