oh my goodness!!! after school i went by my work to grab some of the broken pallets(bonfire wood). so i load them up. i was gonna tie them down right, but its only 2 miles to my house, and its all back roads. so i just connect 2 ratchet straps together and throw them over the top. i didnt really tighten them real tight, cuz hey, its only 2 miles. so i drive home about 20-25 mph cuz i got a un-secured load. im seriosly 500 feet from my house and i see a car coming the other way nail the brakes and hit the shoulder. i didnt know why so i check the mirrors and see a pallet about 20 feet in the air!!! i look closer and see its tied to a ratchet strap!!! it was flying behind me like a kite!! so i pulled over and talked to the guy, we both got a laugh out of it. he was reall cool and we started re-loadng the pallets cuz a few feel off. i wish i could have seen the look on my own face when i realized what was going on. oh well, glad the other guy was cool.
