    So I get a call from the California Highway Patrol this afternoon for a wreck. They said it was a truck and trailer 200' over the side of the road. So I head out to the scene. Now to give You an ideal of how steep the road is My truck has a 3126 Cat engine with a 6 speed and I went up the hill in third gear at 2200 rpm. Now this guy that I have nominated for the Darwin Award was driving a 77 Ford F-150 with a small block and a C-4 automatic. Now the real kicker, He was pulling a two axel utility trailer (with no trailer brakes) full of sand and gravel and the bed was full of tools. He had a tear tag inside the truck from the gravel yard saying that the gravel alone was 3000 lbs /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif The idiot lost His tranny going up the grade so instead of stopping He tried to back down about 200 yards down the hill to a turn out. He got to the turn out but by then the little half ton brakes were toast and the poor guy went for the ride of His life /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
