Encountered an idiot today who doesn’t understand the concept of making sure the vehicle ahead of you is moving before stomping on the gas when the light turns green. He hit the rear of the canoe and it moved forward on the trailer and into the rear door of my car. Canoe is unhurt, I’ll need a new rear door and he’ll need a new headlight and some bondo in the hole that the canoe left in his bodywork. Guess if I am ever paddling and get into a collision with a Honda or a Lincoln we know who’ll come out on top.

    Maybe that dude missed the high school physics lesson about two solid objects not occupying the same space at the same time!!!!

    I’m glad you’re okay! The first thought that comes to mind now is… I think your canoe is a mini Viking Ship. You don’t mess with them! (:)
