Oh noes!!

I know that hill all too well - had to tow a gnarly *** load of drywall up that hill.. hell - its not much more then 5-10 minutes from where Shane lives :-(


That sucks a bunch man, the fresh rain si what caused it - oil slicks abound on that section of the road, and since this is the first rain in a long time, the roads are -slick-!!


Let us know what happens man!

That hill SUCKS!

It switches from 2 lanes to 1 right at the tip top going aroudn the corner, then it has two ultra narrow lanes on the uphill right side - I know they need to change it sometime, I've hit the gas on a RWD going up it and had my back tires spin a bit from the same situation.. rain and that hill are just bad ju-ju with the amount of traffic it gets - shoudl be a full width 4 lane hill going up there :-(

that blows man!

good news is, if your airbags didn't go off, 90% chance it isn't totalled... even when they do deploy there is a big margain for non totaling... depends on what the frame looks like... good luck with the insurance adjusters though...

Cool, thats good

I'm sure even the local cops know that road is a major pain in the rear end with this weather!

all i did was take a nap for like an hour and a half. yeah the two officers were talkin about all the makes on the curb and how many accidents happen in that area of the road. I forgot i left eveything in my truck for work, ill explain to the boss when i get there monday. But when i get it back from the auto body shop (if they can fix it) it will be like ALMOST brand new (well body wise) have to get new clear corners again lol

tell them you had aftermarket corners, the insurance has to replace what is on the vehicle.

also, if the colour doesn't match PERFECTLY, because of the clear on the rest of the truck is faded or something, they have to paint the rest, as it matched before... just keep complaining till you are happy
