Someone needs lessons
« on: October 02, 2010, 11:20:52 PM »
Next time you wanna check your RTI try to pick somewhere you won't back up traffic, and maybe take the jeep off the trailer first???

Plus, you should air down your left front and right rear tires too  ???
I followed a rainbow out to a garage and found a leprichaun. The rainbow ended in a potted cactus on his porch, but there was no gold :(

Speaking as someone who is usually the 3rd on the scene of an accident (after police and EMS), you'd be surprised at what people can accomplish when they put their minds to it...

Rear-ending their own trailer? Mere child's play.

Thats why chevy's make such poor tow vehicles!  ;)

Trailer sway in an 80km/hr zone, ouch, talk about the tail wagging the dog. I'm no towing expert, but if one gets sway that slow, there are other issues at hand.
At least the jeep stayed put on the trailer, cause if it got launched forwards or into the oncoming lanes, wow, that would have gotten real ugly, real fast.

Thankfully no one was hurt.

For all who descided to make fun of this situation.....
It was a good friend of mine, who's trailer broke at the tounge. Cause him to roll his truck 3 times and luckily he is ok.
Sorry for all the inconvenience it may have cause you on your Saturday drive on Deerfoot.

Just so you know he was testing out a trailer that he wanted to buy, and was on his way to Mclean I doubt it it due to lack of experience.

He is lucky he didn't end up seriously hurt or dead. Maybe you should be asking how he is, not how far he ramped it or that chevy's make bad tow vehicles. I am upset with the way you all had to make fun of this.

I think next time maybe you should all find a different topic to make fun of please

Hey now if you can't laugh when life throws you lemons, what's the point really?

We're all glad everyones ok, otherwise it wouldn't of gotten posted.

Here's a boo boo one of my rockstars had on sunday morning. My driver put one set of tires up on a previous dump and failed the RTI. I just held a safety meeting telling them to watch both their mirrors while backing up too..

That's me on the back waiting to hook up the cable :D

Did you know everyone was ok??

And honestly I don't laugh at my friends when they get in serious accidents. And seeing how your crew were in a controlled situation not going 80kmh and flipping 3 times, it is easy to laugh at ones stupidity...

And FYI, the trailer didn't run over the box of the truck, the truck flipped 3 times after hitting the guard rail and went airborne OVER the trailer.

I think its best you just leave it alone. And seriously would ANY of you say anything so rude if it was family or friends.


Thank you

Yar, I got the picture from a first responder who wouldn't send it to me if everyone wasn't ok.

Sorry you're upset.

Truck's a Cat, rescue machine was a Deere. I got that awesome hat by knowing Finning was coming out to my site and digging out my Brandt hat. They hate that thing and give me a new Cat one every time :D

EASY....Chill out sister.. no one is making fun of your friend here. No one is making personal attack to your friend. Why do you feel attacked? The driver is ok ... who knew that he flipped 3 times. I just see a jeep that looks like he's trying to ramp the median. I think it's unsusual and it would make me turn my head ...that's for sure.

Don't make this such a big deal. No one is laughing at any your bud because he got in an accident or hurt. You are totally taking this the wrong way. 

Buddy was just making a comment on the internet because there was a big rocus and the Jeep was still intact. That's all I see it.

People here are laughing at Chevies or at the Jeep ramping ...defitely not at the people involve in the accident.


Perception is a funny thing on the web...  please don't be upset..  no one is making fun of the actual guy getting hurt here....
