    Well, I'm alive......thank god. This morning on my way to work a Chevy Impala ran a red light going over 40 mph and T-boned me. My poor little truck is a complete mess. He hit the passenger side hard. The entire side is crushed in, door is stuck shut. All 4 tires are flat, drive shaft is broken, transmission is toast, and the bed is bent. I ended up facing the other direction on top of the center divide, I nearly flipped. I don't know how I walked away without a scratch!! I'm glad to report that my G-Loomis is fine:smile2:. I'm glad my guardian angel had his coffee this morning and was ready for action. Anyway, this should put a damper on my fishing for a while, but that's life and the least of my worries. I hope you all have a better day than I am having!:tounge_out:

    I am glad you got through this without injury! That in itself makes this a great day and a day for you to be thankful for. :big_smile:

    Perhaps you will end up with an even better fishing truck out of all this! :big_smile:

    Good to know you weren't injured.
    Did the Impala driver Have a license and registration and insurance?
    Were they in the country legally?
    Did the attending officer write a citation for the red light?

    Who is your insurance company? That would concern me not being able to get a hold of them. I am licensed agent PM me if you want to discuss it in further detail. Hope everything works out for you.

    Glad to hear that you are ok. But I must admit that I'm very surprised that your G-Loomis didn't break. While they have great attributes when the load is distributed along the length of the pole (fighting a fish), they are crap when it comes to indirect contact such as dropping the rod, accidentally hitting the tip on something when casting, etc.. Most people don't know how brittle they can be in non-fishing situations, thankfully they have a warranty. I won't bore you, but the higher the modulus rating, the more likely a rod will fail when it encounters unintended sudden impact. Good to hear you are safe.

    Thanks for the info...I didn't know that. I will make sure to be careful with it. Even though it has a lifetime replacement....it still costs $50 to replace. On a side note, I just found out that my truck is a total loss. This is actually the best news I could hope for. I have gap insurance. I owed a lot of money on that truck considering I had rolled a previous loan into this loan. I am out of a vehicle but also out of debt! ya! :big_smile:
