Good to hear neither were seriously hurt. You look at a situation like that and realize it could have been waaaayyy worse.

Someone was watching over them, I am so glad they weren't seriously hurt. Cars can be replaced, people can't. My thoughts and prayers be with you and your family.

Hey Big Guy, I am glad they were not hurt bad. I assume they had their seat belts on and that helped keep them from flying around after 5 flips.

If I can do anything give me a call.

Good Luck

G.C.

I'm glad its just bumps, bruises and tense moments.

2 years ago I was on my way to the Boundary Waters. I was 4hrs away and my neighbor lady called me "just to let me know" that my daughter was going to the hospital for a CAT scan because of a head injury!!! and she was babysitting my other kid. I almost didn't take the trip. I waited to talk to me wife ot make sure everything was okay.

I'm so glad to hear your family is doing fine. Insurance will fix everything, but they can't replace your loved ones.

Holy cats glenn! I'm so glad everyone was ok! Except for the Trailblazer anyway! That's scary. With everything's that's been going on with you and yours, you definitely deserve some ice time! Hang in there buddy!

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
