    As I was waiting by my car for the Wifey, I lone spider repelled out of a tree, and twards me. Now, being as they dont repel fast, I wasnt worried. Besides, I was armed. Anyway, I side step the repelling spider assault, and it lands on my car, which was sitting in the sun for about 6 hours. The spider begins to sever itself from its repelling "rope", then it stops moving, twitches, and curls up and dies. I believe it died from burning to death on the hot surface of the car.

    Indeed. Being as your truck is White, I imagine the spiders will be "hot footing" it on your truck, with a higher chance of survival.

    I poked it a few times, just to make sure it wasnt trying to lure me into a false sense of security, before attacking. Then I did a happy dance.

    I used a stick
    "Overkill" would be if I had my AR....and only a little "over kill" at that.

    This is a WAG based on reading this board alot .. But I think Chris4X4 has a pathalogical hatred of spiders so umm the safety off the "rugar" (sic) not so unbelievable.. Hey he didn't clear leather though I imagine he was loosening up the hands for a quick draw if need be..

    Just make sure you hit your target. Hate to see you miss and put a hole in your engine.

    You would think that living in the climate, the spider would be immune to the heat.

    I still think its a trap. Probably laid a small GPD tracker on your car to track you home.

    Did your heart start beating again? You may have to see a doctor if it isn't beating.

    I thought of that. I clodsely searched the car before I drove off. And even after, I drove in circles, and kept an eye open for spider cars that could be tailing me.
