Whoa! Talk about having a bad day! He really is lucky though, I guess. That's one of those good news - bad news deals.

OH MY!!!!!!!!! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry for that guy. It's very sobering. I go down that road all the time, just as most of us here do. Often I pull over to give Luke a snack, etc. I could very well have pulled over in that exact same place. I don't think I'm going to be comfortable pulling over and parking under those rocks anymore - Luke will just have to go hungry!

I just noticed that too. And Amy just arrived there ... that's not good. I'll go through the computer models this afternoon and see how long all this is going to last.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOh! Unlucky / Lucky Guy! huh.gif Wow! I totaly understand not spending money on collision when the car is paid off and/or not worth to much, in the effort to save money! One should cosider comprehensive along with liability since it (comp.) is really quite cheap. Comp. will take care of things like acts of nature (fire, lightning, trees falling, etc.) If any of you all have an older, not so great vehicle with just liability, you might just check how cheap comp. can be! laugh.gif Fox smile1.gif wink2.gif peace.gif Still a lucky guy! yup.gif
