WHAT HAVE YOU LEFT ON TOP OF YOUR VEHICLE WHEN DRIVING?


Recommended Posts

I was watching the AllState commercial where the guy left the goldfish bowl on top of the car.  I got to wondering what people have put up on top of their vehicles and driven off leaving it up there.  My goof-up was leaving a Ruger Single-Six in a holster up there while loading my old station wagon to go shooting.  Thank goodness the old wagon had a luggage rack and the holster lodged in the back corner.  Went about 25 miles to the range.  Holster/Revolver were just fine.  I wondered why people in cars passing me on the interstate had strange looks on their faces.

Watched what turned out to be a Colt Python slide off a Corvette leaving a National Forest road and chased the guy for miles before catching him in town to return it.  Don'tcha know he was looking for

Ben Hong and I were hunting Saskatchewan Huns and took a mid day break for lunch at a nearby Hires root beer joint. Went to our next spot and I allowed as how it was going to be tough to hunt without

Putting the gun in the cab/case first is a good idea.  In the early 90s, three of us finished up hunting a 80 and my two partners crossed the road to hunt a 160.  I went back to the truck to move it a

Hunting jacket on my old station wagon. Fortunately an honest person found it with my license inside and contacted me.

Coffee, multiple times. Flyrod/reel i was able to backtrack after I stopped at a on foot jump off point to a nice stretch of the stream and found out that I never put it back in the truck.

GPS, launched that baby off the top of the cab and into the state highway and major logging truck route when I laid on the brakes at the intersection ( Doing a 2 day roam on a remote section of a good trout stream, stupid rush!)  Sustained some damage  but made it through the walk - a -bout. Left my wallet on the step bumper of the truck where it hung on for a good 1/4 mi. before falling off onto an access track leading to a wilderness area. I found it but long story I won't get into.

Coffee thermos, took a licking and kept on ticking. Thermos brand all stainless, I've pounded tent stakes in with it.

Drove 10 miles with a chainsaw sitting on my tailgate. Thankfully I was not in my normal hurry and I have a good bedliner.

Jeep CJ rag top , traveled about two miles . A pristine BL 3 20 gauge barrel just started to slide over the windshield so I saw it . Crept to a stop and no damage . Never put anything since on top of a car . I thanked the gun gods .

Probably pretty good list if I really could remember (especially if you count things on tailgate etc.); gun, collars, dog pans, coffee cups, wallet, phone. What I really wonder is how many things I haven't ever noticed. Always amazes me when I take off and don't notice something on the hood in front of me for a bit.

Not on top of the car but my wife put a $180 Snap-On ratchet and socket on the bumper of my truck and left it there.  I got in the truck and drove off not knowing it was there.  Somebody had a good day because of her.

Assorted dog stuff. Leases, comb, brush, water bowl. Usually find most of it.

Seems like a lucky gun.

 

I’m not lucky, so I put guns on the hood.

It does put pheasants in the bag.

Years ago my dad and I lost a fly rod off the top of a pickup topper in southern Mn.  Someone found it and turned it in at the local Tavern where they had a weekly big trout contest, the owners knew dad and we got it back.
