Doubles (on the same end of the tow vehicle) are another challenge entirely.

Never done triples myself but I figure if you can keep them straight its a piece of cake. Good luck with that though!

While I've never driven trucks for a living, I figure those of you that do would appreciate this. It's my favorite road trip song.

See post above.
It's a 6.0 amp Skil Scrolling Jigsaw. I bought it with the intention of maybe doing some fun craft type things with it. (Or was it an Orbital Jigsaw?) It has a knob on the top to turn as you saw. The blade is thin. Does this make any sense?

Yes, I have a craftsman one just like that. The thing to know about a jigsaw is that it will kick if you let the blade move too slow. Just let the blade do the cutting (don't force the blade into the material), and take your time on the curves. If a curve is really tight, I recommend using either a scrollsaw (cheap (but good) ones cost about $100-$150, really good ones that will let you do very fine, integrate work cost more like $300-$600), or a coping saw (can find a good used one at antique stores/garage sales/ebay for under $20).

Yea try a single jet ski trailer behind a full size suv . That will make a preacher cuss .

Soo Think I did a nice deed for someone today , one of which no one would ever do for me Im sure .
Big wreck on the main rd so I busted up walmart to kill some time . I parked and as I am walking though the parking lot I look down and see a lil memory card right in the middle of the road , so I grabbed it and went on about my way .
get to the shop and pop it in to see If it could be traced in any way '' Whats the odds of that ?''
About the 4th pic is a girl holding a reward ticket with her dad and he had on a visitor sticker ...... WITH FULL NAME .
Googled him and low and behold , he owns a big tile company which does alot of business with my dad . looked up his number and gave him a ring , Lady picks up.
Hey this Phillip with Mobile marine service , I think I found your memory card with alot of family pictures on it .
She went bezerk with excitement , said she had been back tracking all day to everywhere she went and checking lost and found .
She was just dumbfounded That I had found it , figured out whos it was and then got in contact with them . It has all her families special occasions , plays , birthdays ect ect .
I keep all mine backed up but if i ever lost any I would not know it , we have about 5,000 pics of the kids , friends , dogs ect .
I thought it was pretty cool so now Imma sit back and feel good about myself.

About two years ago I picked up a credit card in a Chili's parking lot. Went home and Zabasearched the name, and got a hit with a phone number. Called it, got yelled at for stealing it, and asked when I was going to drive it to their house. Since I had not identified myself, I gave them a dial tone, and cut the damn card up. Should have thrown it back out in a parking lot!

I wish I weren't subjected to seeing these 18-20 year old college boys with a body type like mine, wearing skinny jeans all the time. It's disturbing.

Could have done like someone did with mine. Buy a bunch of penis enlargement pills and some gas.
