At least we know what happened to the delivery that included everything BUT the kitchen sink. LoL

I'm pretty sure Brett is still on his rock climbing adventure in Canada but in the past I've seen people paste the YouTube link then he works his magic to allow it to play on the post.

Hey Neek. Was that on I65 southbound somewhere between Birmingham and Montgomery? Don't recall exactly where it was. I just seen one that was in pretty bad shape in left emergency lane. Thought that was pretty strange to see on side of road. If was you, Hope your all good. Lot of debris scattered after the sink.

HA! Yes that's exactly where it happened! Small world that's crazy. This dude had all kinds of crap falling out the back of his pickup. A window broke too I think. I tried to slow down and looked to both sides to slide over but too much traffic. I'm all good it just got hung up on the axle and I had to pull it out of there. Problem is, I returned it to it's original owner on the RIGHT side breakdown lane. Hmmm....

There's a work around for posting a video LINK here. The Link box in the message composer doesn't like YouTube URLs. So, use "www.google.com" for the Link Address. Then Submit. When you get the HTML stuff, look for www.google.com in quotes. It looks like this:

a href="www.google.com">My video link

Now Copy the video link, then highlight the Google address inside the quotes and paste right onto it. You'll get something that looks like this:

a href="https://youtu.be/rk7l44EmcVQ">My video link

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

If you told us that the sink landed in a sink hole, I would believe it. Potholes are more like sink holes on many highways. Check out the current thread about the pre-trip inspection if you haven't already.

Pre-trip Inspection:

A pre-trip inspection is a thorough inspection of the truck completed before driving for the first time each day.

Federal and state laws require that drivers inspect their vehicles. Federal and state inspectors also may inspect your vehicles. If they judge a vehicle to be unsafe, they will put it “out of service” until it is repaired.
