need a ride anyone?



what if ?

video
what a mess !




Peter, his father, Jens, Dain and their cousin Kyle went for a ride Les Schwab style. Peter had ball joints and tie rods replaced on Thurs. .....Sat. they came to the conclusion someone didn't put the cotter pin in the castlenut when Peter couldn't turn the corner because the steering went out. Peter had the side of the mountain to stop him instead of the steep canyon that was on the other side of the road. We feel blessed they are alive.

Wow. I'm glad he hit the mountain side! I'm assuming everyone is okay? So do you guys get a new pickup now?

Everyone is sore, Kyle was hurt in several ways, Dain and tools fell on him, and he cut his hand on the glass that broke from his window.

I am sure Les Schwab will be willing to pay for lots of things, including a new pick-up. Peter went in and filled out a claim yesterday and gave them a copy of the pictures from the accident. And we told our in insurance to take care of Les Schwab, so we will see how this turns out. Right now I think they all need a chiropractor and some massages.

I'm glad everyone was okay and Peter steered the pick-up that way. So scary! I hope Les Schwab pulls through and won't fight you too much. They better not, huh?!

Oh, ShaRee, that is so scary. I'm glad everyone is safe. I know they're all shaken and sore, but still okay. Give Peter an extra hug for quick thinking!

I'm glad the Lord was watching out for the men on this trip (including the young men).

We are glad that you all are ok...it is amazing how quickly life can change. Peter, did you get a video of you flipping the truck back on its wheels or maybe carrying it down the mountain? -Aus
