I don't think those are burnout marks, I think it's just wet pavement or otherwise marked. I've been here almost as long as he has and have never seen or heard of him doing a burnout in the garage. He takes REALLY good care of his house, and I can't see him tearing his stuff up like that. Has an older couple on one side of him that probably wouldn't tolerate that crap either.LOL, dude in the video at beginning says he's not obnoxious, but in the background you can see burnout marks that start in the garage and go all the way into the driveway, and yes, that guy is obnoxious. I had to stop watching after 1:30.....OMG. I think I've seen that same wrap in a Main Event bowling alley.
You don't have a donkey you can hook a cart up to ??

Sorry, Willow just texted and advised the donkey is pushing the cart !!
at least you upgraded to a two wheel barrow
On my last outing two years ago one of my impellers threw a blade 35 miles from the ramp, truck and trailer. I limp moded the boat to the nearest boat ramp, 3 miles at 3 to 5 miles per hour. Set the anchor, made sure my wife was comfy and took an Uber back to my rig. Another time in high winds and swells I considered pulling into the closest marina, catching an Uber to my rig and recovering from the marina I pulled into.I’m sure grandma and grandpa will have a great laugh with my daughter over the years remembering the day. Honestly my biggest concern was if we had to retreat further east and weren’t going to be able to get back to my truck (more storms were building behind that one) how I was going to get my truck/trailer to the east side of the bay to pull the boat out.
Well, out on the water, the safety of the vessel IS the safety of your family, friends and self. Always keep that in mind. Once you've got everyone safe ashore then it's a different story of course. Then it just becomes a "thing" like everything else.On my last outing two years ago one of my impellers threw a blade 35 miles from the ramp, truck and trailer.

Sometimes it is easy to forget that my first responsibility is the safety of my family , friends and self. The boat and everything on it (except the people) can be replaced.
RustyI would have felt like Clark if the beautiful woman driving would have reacted the way christy Brinkley did to Chevy chase in that movie. Chevy got the hair flip, lip lick and blown a kiss. I’m pretty sure the hot woman I saw was scowling and preparing to flip me off while showing me a diamond on her ring finger worth more than the Vette she was driving. What was Clark’s son’s name?
