    Noone happened to see an accident or the aftermath of one over on mccarran by Meadowood this morning did they? My grandpa(02 ext cab gold dodge with a shell) blacked out or something (maybe a stroke) and ran a red light and what I'm guessing is tboned another car. Someone told my mom he was doing 80?? His air bags didn't go off and he broke his sternum. Were not sure if he panicked or still wasn't with it, and he took off and drove his truck home. My grandma took him back to the scene and he was transported to renown. Were just trying to put all the pieces together to see what happened. He doesn't remember anything but leaving the Wells Fargo on mccarran by meadowood, then getting home. Scary deal for sure. I haven't decided yet, but I might be headed to Reno in the morning.

    Sorry, I'm in California this weekend. I'm hoping he makes a full recovery and can figure out what happened to him.

    Scary stuff TJ, I hope it all works out in the end and they can figure out what happened with your gramps.

    Well, hopefully I can do this in the same post without coming across as a completely insensitive dick, but here goes. I'm selling a 105 qt Yeti Tundra cooler. I purchased it last month and have used it once on one 5-day camping trip. I just picked up a used pop-up tent trailer a few days ago and unfortunately, this cooler won't fit through the doorway (too wide). :(

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It has a small black mark on top where something rubbed against it while driving home from the campsite. It's purely cosmetic and is just being difficult to remove because the top's textured. Beyond that, the cooler's basically perfect-

    [​IMG]

    This is my situation. My 50 qt Yeti fits cleanly through here and can be loaded even when the trailer's collapsed. Since coolers are the last thing to be loaded, it'd be ideal if I can load them both through here which is why I need something different.

    [​IMG]

    I don't know if you can read this, but it's my Scheels reciept dated 6/28/13. With tax, the cooler cost me $484.75. I'm offering this up for $375 cash to anyone whose willing to come to Lyon Cty to pick it up, or $400 if I need to bring it to you. That's a $110 savings for what is essentially a brand-new cooler. I'm doing this in the hopes that I can get it sold quick before my next camping trip next week.

    [​IMG]

    For anyone who may not be familiar with Yeti, they are the shit in ice chests. As I mentioned above, I took this out for a five-day trip (over July 4th with 90+ temps in the mtns). After returning, I hauled it inside my kitchen to unload. After removing whatever food, condiments, etc were left, I continued using the remaining ice for the next three days to chill my beer while sitting in my kitcken. These sucker's are damn-near bulletproof (and actually are 'bearproof') and stay cold for a long, long time.

    If anyone's interested just hit me up with a PM. Thanks!

    Thanks for the support guys. I got some more info. He was traveling north on McCarran between Longley and Rio Poco and rear ended a lady in a small SUV going the same way. He was going about 80, and she was going about 40. He lives just off Rio Poco. He got home and told my grandma something had happened, but he wasn't sure of what. They followed the coolant trail and found the accident. He is staying in the hospital at least another night so they can keep an eye on his heart. Sounds like he is doing ok. The truck is pretty roughed up, but looks fixable. Still no idea on why he doesn't know what happened.

    Yup, the Taco. This is a small trailer and I doubt it weighs much over 1200 lbs at best. It literally feels like it's glued to the back of the truck when dragging it. I have an even smaller flatbed utility trailer that feels like more of a load even though it's far less actual weight. IIRC with the V-6 and tow package, I believe we top out (on paper anyway) at 6500 lbs for trailer weight.

    Edit: Wow, that's some rough business TJ. Having an accident of any kind at 80 is rarely good. I'm keeping them crossed that he comes out of the hospital okay.

    You mentioned they're watching his heart, sounds like a black-out due to very high, or very low BP. Hope he is recovering well.

    This is the first time he has blacked out that I know of. I don't think he has had any blood pressure issues in the past, but that doesn't mean that's not the case.

    Let me know if you need anything TJ.

    On another note, is anybody looking to sell a 12 guage shotgun? My Benelli was stolen by my wives 17 year old cousin. Pressing charges and all, but its long gone by now.

    Man I hate thieves worse than just about anything on the planet! Not looking to sell one, but I'm pretty sure Crossroads of the West is going on this weekend at the convention center.
