It happened one morning on my way to work.  Now, I didn't want to go to work so, had I followed my first thoughts I wouldn't have had a collision.  My F250 SuperDuty is really in bad shape now.

Tuesday, October 9th, I was heading out.  I was off on the 8th and had really enjoyed a 3-day weekend.  I left home at 5:40 as usual.  Drove the 1 1/2 miles of gravel road to reach Marine City Highway.  Pulled out, drove about 1 mile, got up to 60 mph and BAM!  Got me a buck.

I didn't want a buck.  Not this kind of buck.  Venison isn't one of my favorite foods and hunting isn't one of my usual hobbies.  Using a SuperDuty isn't recommended, either.  

From what I understand, only the engine is still in the original space.  Everything else was either squished, busted, or simply relocated.  Now, the waiting game.  How much?  The $500 deductible is my responsibility. 

We will see.

I told the body shop man that I want my Blue Oval.  That was pretty much where the grille made contact with the broad side of the buck.  Mr. Buck was in mid-leap when I got him.  Lucky for the car going in the opposite direction he didn't get it since his car was way smaller.  

So, I did get another day off.  Drove Steve to the airport then home for the rest of the day.
