by far the scariest, but but luckily turned out ok for everyone was this:
My wife and I were headed southbound on I35E from Denton, TX going thru Lewisville, TX..... three lanes of traffic, we were in my Dodge 2500 running the center lane ( I like being able to dodge either way if possible, sometimes doesn't work). As we are driving we both spot a recliner laying off the side of the road. Not far down the road cars start splitting left and right from the center lane. Quick glance, cars right beside me on both sides and one tight on my a%%, just as I spot the box in the right half of my lane, on the box it says "Lazy Boy". Told my wife to hang on and that I hope that is the box that the recliner came from and not another one still in a box. I grab the steering wheel hard with both hands, I do have a big gnarly grill guard, eased as far left as I can so it will catch the right push bars, it starts to go under the truck and to the right, it lifts the front of the truck a few inches off the road, but I don't feel it hit the rear. I look in the rear view mirror to see the box ripped in half.............................................. ..................... and stuffed toys all over all 3 lanes of traffic. Luckily no one wrecked.
