The Ram won! 70mph and a turkey dead center of the wind sheild really gets the old ticker going. Luckily it didn't come all the way through. Teresa and I are fine but the turkey didn't make it.

Did it get stuck on the windshield or did it launch straight up in the air and hit the ground with a thud?

Up and over. It landed on the shoulder of the opposite lane. I still have blood and feathers stuck to the wiper arm.

Yeah, kind of bad luck. What else can go wrong? I don't want to think about it. It will be interesting to see how my insurance company handles it. I need a new windshield, wiper arm and there are scratches all the way up the hood. They have been really good so far so I am keeping my fingers crossed. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Did you have a hunting license for that turkey? You could have brought it home for a BBQ.

sorry to hear that man, that is scary stuff. I was on my way to the beach one time with a couple buddies and there was a chicken in our lane on the highway, thought my friend who was driving was going to run that sucker over but swerved instead, ended up fish tailing and flipped his 4runner. scariest moment of my life haha, sometimes it's better to just hit the damn thing

The truck went off to the shop to get fixed yesterday afternoon. I should get it back today. $250 deductible, $380 for the windshield + install, also need new wiper arm and hood buffed. That now makes $750 in deductibles this year. Everyone says bad luck comes in threes. I think I'll drive the Jetta from now on.

The truck is back. $630 total including the $48 wiper arm. Gotta love Dodge OEM parts, huh? Oh well, I guess all's well that ends well.
