There is just one thing that Alice won't do..................................
SHE WON'T TELL ME WHEN THERE IS A LOW HANGING TREE BRANCH OVER THE ROAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can you believe that? Alice could take me from here to Katmandu and back and tell me where all the starbucks and target stores are (for my wife of course) but she doesn't warn me of a tree? Not even a big stop sign on the screen or nothing. I mean all the bells and whistles on this thing and she can't even say "Hey watch out for that tree you moron, you have your 8 foot deer blind tower in the back of your truck!" Yep, that's right. On my maiden voyage using Alice to find my way to the deer lease which I have been to before this is what happened.
I had the tower portion in the bed of the truck strapped down really tight. No big deal. We made it under every bridge, gas station canopy, stop light, etc, etc.. But we did NOT make it under the tree that hangs over the road less than half a mile from the lease. *Note to self: On next trip to deer lease with NEW tower, put tower on trailer and lay tower down.*
The interesting thing is that all 3 people in the truck were commenting on how the tree overhangs the road and how someone has a chain and come-along holding the low branch up but noone thought about the tower sticking up so high. So......after one ruined tower, one banged up truck, and a little hurt pride, here we sit.
I can build another tower, get my truck fixed, and take another trip down to the lease (with Alice's assistance of course), but I'm sure I will never be able to live down the "stories" that will be associated with this incident.
Really, I have no idea?
P.S. - No trees were harmed in this portrayal. Really, the tree didn't have any kind of visible mark on it at all. I guess that's why they left it in the middle of the road.
