Bob decided to do a bit of logging with his roof to relive some stress

then Bob decided it was Jim's turn to drive, i let them go first, and i left a little distance, as i round a curve i see the truck stoped behind a tree, as i get closer, i see this. it looked bad from behind the truck I took the pic after i made shure everyone was ok.

out came the saw, the tree and Jim. the lower part of the tree sprung back a good 15' we cleaned out the glass and did a damage assessment and changed our shorts
