WOW! Just WOW!!! You are a perfect example of what a man SHOULD be!! God Bless You, Brother. Glad you are safe. I had the same thing happen to me in a K5 Blazer. You are dead-on about the skid marks!

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!
