Where do you want to start at ?? being shot or the three times i was wounded from mortor rounds or the 13 wrecks i have been involved in with only one being my fault or the parachute that did not open correctly or the time that i had a tractor over turn or the time i rode the same tractor down a steep hill while mowing gas line wright of way with one tire going 900 MPH forward and one going 900 MHP backwards and going airborne off each terris with the brushhog looking like and airboat propeller for over a quarter mile That one fell under the heading of HEY Ya 'll hold my beer and watch this . I want to tell ya after mowing them lines that one year and putting a wheel tractor on those wright aways the hills we farm are FLAT ground . Or the time i was winching a Idaco drilling rig out of a drilling location , the rig weighed in somewhere around 200000 lbs and it was just me the rig and one little J D 750 dozer with a Hyster W6F winch and three snatch blocks and the help from the rig itself , blade sunk into the dirt as far as i could sove it while spinning the tracks to build up dirt behind the tracks to help hold the dozer and doing a NO NO of winching about three quarters throttle when one of the snatch blocks broke and came flyen back at the dozer i was out of the seat and almost flat on the platform before it hit the screen made of expanded metal and it went thru it like a sharp knife thru a screen door took off the muffler and air cleaner and landed about two hundred feet out inft. of the dozer . These were 70000lbs rated snatch blocks.
