I didn't care about the tap with no damage, the face mask stopping beside me however yes.

Shit I've backed into and hit worse stuff out on the trail... Not a worry..

Anyway it was strange, and I've had a few things happen in the past few years to make me want to rethink some things...

The incident at uwharrie, being shot at (over head more accurately we were floating with just our heads out) in the water while on the surface at a cave in Florida, and the fedora incident..

Not to mention having my deco tanks stolen during a dive, which is potentially life threatening if your team is not prepared.. (Not truck related but still)

My brother had something similar to this happen to him about a month ago. He knows how to handle himself with a weapon in a bad situation that Ammon Bundy could only dream about. He was armed, and he may have even been in uniform.

Dude rolls up behind him flashing his brights, tailgating. But nothing odd is happening with my brother's car, so he does not pull over, but does let the guy come along side at the light. Two people in the car are motioning for him to pull over, and pointing to back of his car. They were not angry, flipping him off or anything, just very insistent. So he does pull into a public lot. The dude rolls up and taps the rear bumper of my brother's car, then rolls by, does a u-turn, and faces his car at my brother, who gets back into his car and decides to leave. The dude gets out of his car and advances while showing a pistol in his belt.

So my brother j-turns and calls the police on his way out. Goes back to the lot to meet the police, does some clearing turns on the way back home, but other than that nothing ever came of it.

Makes you wonder though....

Glad nothing more happens to you, or your Rover.

That story is just crazy. At first I thought maybe the guy was a kidnapper. Then I thought a car jacker. While reading through the posts, I was thinking the guy would have been wearing a dead presidents mask or a Reagan mask....

Now I am thinking the balaclava was a decoy of sorts to get your mind off of his hitting you--freak you out enough so you will just get in your car and get the hell out of there.

I have been to NC several times, to a very large turkey processing plant -- the feathers along the road leading to the plant were remarkable. I had to do a U-turn in a driveway because I missed a turn. The people in the car with me were freaking out because they thought someone sitting on the porch of the house the driveway led to was going to shoot us. We did not get shot at. I am sure the people who were sitting on the porch were thinking, "Holy shit, are these people driving into our driveway going to shoot us?"

Regardless, I am glad you are OK.

Besides feathers, what is in the water down there?

I don't know how people live near those places. I've been past a few down in NC like the Tyson plant on 113 and the smell is always... intense.

Kind of like whatever that stench is in Phenom Phen. But you eventually get use to it.

Trash day in NY is fine. It's the slums like Williamsburg that are insane.

Sorry I know this was a spooky incident but I was literally crying laughing with some of the responses. Especially the baclava pastry. Hilarious!

Luis, having grown up in that era, the funniest part was Pinto owners sporting FLAMMABLE stickers on their bumpers!
