    Yeah, I'm super bummed. I just keep reminding myself to feel lucky no one got hurt. I wasn't far from it when it happened.

    Yeah, I was thinking that as well. I think the van-ups are cool, but it's not what I want. I've also started thinking about some sort of custom box van.

    I couldn't help but start looking in the "vans for sale" section. Now I'm in contact with someone that has one for sale here in Washington. It looks like it might be a little too rough for my abilities, but we'll see.

    Heavy Hauler

    Just this past summer, I hauled about 4000 pounds of steel with it. The rear tires (they're a little over-sized) were rubbing the fenders a little over bumps, but it made it.

    OMG, ouch! I rest my case, trees are always bad for vans and cars, etc. Birds poop on the paint from them, trees drop sap on vans, they shade the sun allowing mold and mildew to develop, and they fall down at bad times.

    I'm close to you up here in Blaine. I know the Rockport area has lots of old growth timber that can be rotten and fall down a lot.

    Yeah, I had no idea this tree was about to fall down. After it did, I could see it looked sick, and the root ball was pretty small.
