    Default So I had a fail(s) today.....

    So due to early christmas with the family and I, the recycling bin was full, not to mention the garage had maybe 10-12 boxes lying on the floor, so when my dad came home we decided to throw all the extra boxes in the bed of the truck and haul it off to the "dump" (what we call the local disposal area). As were piling all these boxes in the bed, i figured it was a good time to put my titan ratchet straps to use, so i go to put on and filter it through and then turn the spindle, well i knot it up. LOL! so my dad has to do it (big fail haha) then we get in to drive (and i try to get into the habit to set the emergency brake) so i took it off and drove to the dump, no problem at all. We get there, i set the parking brake on and throw out all the trash and boxes, so i can finally see out my rear windshield . So the bed's clean, we get back in, i start driving. Maybe atleast a mile down the roar, i realized it feel's like it's dragging. So i look at my gauges, and see the "!P-BRAKE!" lighting up on the dash. So my eyes grow big and i pull the P-RELEASE and we speed up like a lambo on nos. Of course, my dad's giving me the look. which is usually " ". so today wasnt my day. Haha. But I did end up getting my rear back up camera fully installed so i guess that made it a better day!
