    Everyone please take a moment of silence for a falling comrade.(My 89 K5) Wensday night I was driving around, enjoying my blazer, when all of the sudden I hit some water. I hydroplaned, turned side ways and flipped her right into an orchard. Man I'm depressed.

    ...those without a hat - hands on heart!

    Hope everyone came out OK !!!! I mean that!!! I've been there and to me, the worst thing you can do is to injure your friends or family - screw the truck! That can be replaced!

    I'm alright. Thanks for asking. I was by myself. A bump on the head and some bruises on my arm and shoulder is all that happen. I'll tell you what. The truck is destroyed, well almost. The cab around the front seats is almost completly unharmed. Who knows, if I was driving anything but a k5, I might not be around to tell you all this story. Again thanks for asking if I was alright.

    Remember, Now days we have the tech. to rebuild it.....How bad was it? You need to take a close look and see if it is worth rebuilding.....

    Our flags are at half mast.... Let us know if you lay it to rest so we can take a moment to reflect in a moment of silence!

    Good luck!!!!

    Hey I took some pictures. I have a scanner, what else do I need to have or do to get my pictures on line. You see, I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to computers. If antbody can help, I sure will try and put some pictures up.

    Not to beat the military symbolism to death. Just wanted to point out the important part (human life) was maintained thanks to good engineering.

    Scan your pics and save them in "My documents" or something. Log on to the net and go to photopoint or some other image hosting site. Upload your pics to the site you picked and then post the link or the pic if you can.

    Its good to hear your OK.
    Don't forget to take everything of value that you spent money on off the truck so you can put it on another one.
