I forgot the 2nd closest I ever came to being taken out.

Remember Air Blasters? Now picture my stepmom returning from the hair dressers with one of those piled up hairdos some women liked in the 60s, and she wore until the early 80s. You get the picture. I got the beating but I just could not resist! I just had to know if a shot from my blaster would take out that hairdo from close range. I snuck up behind her, held the blaster about 6 inches away, yelled There she blows (had been watching Moby Dick) and let her rip.

My stepmom was so pissed and my father did not help me. He was to busy laughing. Years later she still brought that up.

Here, but occasionally There.

Well, I think your "second closest" would be considered to be "self-induced." Does that even count as to "What Almost Got You?"

Well her and I always did have a strange relationship. After I came in all bloody from a fight. Side of my head bleeding, face, etc. She broke a fiberglass hair brush over my head for breaking the other kids fingers.

Her name was Martha, so one year hurricane Martha was heading for the TX gulf coast where we lived. Smart mouth me pops off with, "Oh just like mom. A big bag of hot air." You could say we did not get along.

I grew up in North Dakota and part of being a 16 year old living in the country was running a trap line for coyote mink fox and weasel. The Pelts that were sold made up my spending money for the summer. I walked my trap line every day after school. One evening as I was crossing the frozen creek in the same place as dozens of days before, the ice broke. I fell in to my armpits and was stopped from going under by the rifle that I was carrying. Broke ice and made a path to the bank. Now I am soaking wet 2 miles from my car and it is below zero and getting dark. I stripped off the wet clothes built two fires and stood between them in my underwear running out occasionally to get more wood. Clothes dried in the heat of the fire in about four hours so I got dressed and walked to the car. In wet boots. My mother was freaked out and was already planning who to invite to the funeral because I was over four hours late coming home.

Draggin my feet while riding on the tail gate of dad’s truck.

Wasn’t that bad, UNTILL, he throws it in reverse but still being a kid that knew everything at the good ol age of probably 10-11 I was still draggin my feet.

Well, I soon found out what a smokin hot muffler and tail pipe burn from butt crack to back of neck feels like and when ol dad figured out I was ok I got the right of passage boot in the ass.

I got extremely lucky on this pass. Got over in the marbles and stayed in it too long. Car really needed an anti-roll bar in the rear.


This pass was a little better.

Nice recovery in that first video.
I used to run a 10,000 lb Ford diesel down the track with those same track times. Mid 10s. Id eat guys like you in the 1/8th LOL
