    In a previest post I toled you guys that I new a guy that puts his truck through every year. Well, last nite he was driving out to his ice shack and he put the whole truck through in 14' of water. Both him and the guy that was with him got out safely, but the other guy almost didn't make it out. Sorry I didn't get any pics of them getting it out. As of 6:00pm 1/9/10 it still was not out.

    He had to hire a diver to hook chains on it, but he is doing the rest of the work himself. He can also fix it himself. His insurance won't cover it.

    WOW. Does it every year and he was dumb enough to try again? I'm sorry but if I failed at it once there wouldn't be no second shot.

    wouldent he have to hire a diver to hook chains on it too, or did some one just jump in, and **** how much do parts cost for fixing a truck that goes in the water every year, if it were me i would have it sealed, and not drive on the ice with the plow on, it looks like he was plowing too. dumba**

    Tis is the first time he ha put it completly through. All the other times only the front tires broke through and the plow would cach and it wouldn't go all the way in.

    Look at the chunks floating and scattered again. That ice was maybe 3 inch and looks like 2. I have drove on 6 inch ice long ago in Michigan when I was young n dumb. 6 inch woulda been more than enough to support the truck.

    Oh ****! I wanna see pics of it when its out of the water.

    Take a quad or argo out onto the ice. Or walk. Don't take something you make money with. This just makes me sick. Was it a Duramax or gasser?

    Word, even though it's not covered by his insurance. I hope his insurance drops him, since he does the same thing each year. He probaly also drives stupid in other ways.

    Also does he get fined for contamination of a waterway in Maine. Here in Pa a guy did that a few years back on Lake Wallenpaupack. Ended up getting a $5000 fine from the state's EPA. On top of recovery fees and vehicle repair.
