What have you left on top of your car?


Recommended Posts

A Stanley coffee thermos and a 2 sided place o crappie box full of jigs, on the back bumper of my truck.  I make it a point anymore to not put anything on bumper or top of car.  One benefit of chemo brain and getting older is if I have left something else there I forgot about it.

I saw that one shoe on the highway. I always wondered what the story was 😄

Nothing.  I don’t have a car.  I haven’t had a car since the 70s.  My truck is too tall to put anything on top of it.

Had an old Maverick that had the huge back bumper. Left my nice Bending Branches canoe paddle lay on it from Eminence to St. Louis and it stayed.

I bet there have been 20+ phones on the rear bumpers of trucks over the years when guys drop boats off here.   They get out to unhook the boat and say...."Holy Crap, THERE'S my Phone!".   Obviously set it there when they hooked up to it.  

If you ever watch a truck or SUV travel on a dusty gravel road you'll see that there's a vortex that tends to keep things from getting blown off a rear bumper.     Had an opened fly box stay glued to a rear bumper for 140 miles once. Never even lost a single wooly-bugger.

Just recently the trailer lock, key and second boat ignition key turned up missing.  I vaguely recall putting it on the bumper.  To all of the youngsters reading this never put anything on the step bumper, ever, not even once, don't even think of it.

Had to look that one up. Remembered the story once I read it. Here's a link for the good of the order:

I've had De Shootenist Gent'man on my Amazon wish list forever. It's now on the way.  

On the old conservation cafe, my username was Horace.  Several people were surprised when they actually met me.

An apple pie, a pizza ,2 high dollar fly rods and reels as we left Montauk and drove the gravel road just pass the bridge to hit the back road to Hwy.63. Something kind of made a bouncing sound and we both realized that the rods were on top of the Explorer.

Have that book as part of a collection. Interesting read with phonetic interpretation of local speech. 
 

Bo’whoop....

One shoe. Not both, just one on a duck hunt. To this day I don’t know how the pair was separated or why I wasn’t wearing them....
