    Met Aaron today, didn't think this was how I would meet him, taco on the side of the road broke the F down, looks like a lca failure or something in that area...

    Nice to meet ya Aaron, sorry it was under these circumstances.

    I know the truck of course and I lurk here and TTORA a lot so I knew he bought the truck. Saw the truck broke down and stopped. LCA was inside a big gash in front tire and a lot of traffic made it impossible to tell exactly what happened. HW99 at rush hour through the Terwilliger curves area with the truck partially in the road.

    I try and stop for anyone broke down but especially tacomas and people I recognize from online. He had a tow truck enroute and I had to go home and let the nanny leave otherwise I would have stuck around.
