    Reminder for myself, Don't almost hit a deer with David in the passenger seat.

    Tonight on the way home from a birthday dinner for my Pawpaws birthday at my parents (we had to leave early due to Davids mom almost burning her kitchen down do to a grease fire) the speed limit is 55mph, I was doing 60. I had less then 2 seconds to make a choice with a car right on my tail. I could NOT slam on my breaks. We were in my what I refer to as my beater car. a 2001 Nissan Sentra SRT. I wasn't worried about a dent but I was worried it would fly thru the windshield. It was HUGE. All I can say is the car has great traction. I missed the deer w/i centimeters. I was hoping for a side swipe vs a full front hood strike. I never made a sound, David closed his eyes and screamed, btw, NOT helpful. I made it past the deer just fine then he stopped and the car behind me almost over corrected. We stopped a few feet down the road and so did he. He said I dont know how you missed it. He saw me make my choice and chose to go the other way. He ended up off the side of the road and got himself a flat tire. We offered to help him change it. He said he needed to make a trip to the woods and would call his wife to pick him up and wait till tomorrow to change it.

    We try not to drive my truck to my parents b/c Deer are a huge thing on the road from our house to theirs.

    So keep your eyes peeled and no squawking when super human driving is needed...

      It was more like a sick pig. It was a squeal and shreak at the same time. But not in a high pitch. Some how I only scream after the fact.

        "Take a trip to the woods" is that a euphamism for had too much to drink?

              The trip to the woods was to keep from messing his pants.
