When I started reading this post the first this that came to mind was this tow hook projectile. Getting stuck is just part of the day, but watching that tow hook snap off the frame and hit the fuel tank was an eye opener. I know I will learn from these stories and I hope everyone does the same.
Hope to see you on the trail Nate
