    Sounds like you are not hurt. Sorry about the truck. Idiots cut in front of me all the time. Stupidity!

    I hate Austin. Sorry to hear about your misfortune but glad you're safe. You're a better man than I for choosing the wall.

    Wow, I hope your pride is ok as well. I think you chose wisely but the minds of pretend commuters is well at best terrible. With all the distractions that go on when the primary is to be in control at all times while driving.

    Of course the emptyhead did not stop? And take the blame for being a dolt. Even when you drive on the defensive some dimwit cuts you off with little time to react.

    Sorry for your unfortunate ending to your trip. Now begins your new quest to Name your M818.
