If this was posted before I apologize.


A guy buys a new Lincoln Navigator for $42,500.00 (with monthly payments of
He and a friend go duck hunting in mid-winter; and of course all of the
lakes are frozen. These two guys go on a lake with their GUNS, a DOG, and
of course the new NAVIGATOR.
They decide they want to make a natural looking water area for the ducks,
something for the decoys to float on. Now making a hole in the ice large
enough to invite a passing duck, is going to take a little more power than
the average drill auger can produce. So, out of the back of the new
Navigator comes a stick of dynamite with a short 40 second-fuse.

Now our two Rocket Scientists, afraid they might slip on the ice while
trying to run away after lighting the fuse (and becoming toast, along with
the Navigator), decide on the following course of action: They light the 40
second fuse; then, with a mighty thrust, they throw the stick of dynamite as
far away as possible.

Remember a couple of paragraphs back when I mentioned the NAVIGATOR, the
GUNS, and the DOG...???
Let's talk about the dog: A highly trained Black Lab used for RETRIEVING.
Especially things thrown by the owner. You guessed it: the dog takes off
across the ice at a high rate of speed and grabs the stick of dynamite, with
the burning 40-second fuse, just as it hits the ice.
The two men swallow, blink, start waving their arms and, with veins in their
necks swelling to resemble stalks of rhubarb, scream and holler at the dog
to stop. The dog, now apparently cheered on by his master, keeps coming.
One hunter panics, grabs the shotgun and shoots the dog.

The shotgun is loaded with #8 bird shot, hardly big enough to stop a Black
Lab. The dog stops for a moment, slightly confused then continues on.
Another shot, and this time the dog, still standing, becomes really confused
and of course terrified, thinks these two geniuses have gone insane.

The dog takes off to find cover, under the brand new Navigator. The men
continue to scream as they run. The red hot exhaust pipe on the truck
touches the dogs rear end, he yelps, drops the dynamite under the truck and
takes off after his master.
Then """"""""""BOOOOOOOOOOOOM""""""""""!!!! The truck is blown to bits and
sinks to the bottom of the lake, leaving the two idiots standing there
with..... "I can't believe this just happened" looks on their faces.

The insurance company says that sinking a vehicle in a lake by illegal use
of explosives is NOT COVERED by the policy. He still had yet to make the
first of those $560.00 a month payments...The dog is okay..." :)

I am not surprised. Reminds me a a story about a guy and his New truck/camper, Dune buggy trailer and Dune buggy, getting caught in the surf at Pismo Beach. Going down in the soft sand where the tide comes in and never being seen again. The one I am referring to is real, I believe.

The story about the Navigator is probably real also, many lakes in Wisconsin. The guy could have gone to jail for what he did (should have IMO).

So anyone know about this?:cool:

The one I told you is real.:D

I was at Pismo the weekend after it happened, big story back in the 70's.
Another one, about a guy and his bronco almost in the same place, later.

Heavy weight, soft sand and moving ocean surf, is tough on vehicles.;)

Just to stay with the topic, I will say they did'nt have to HUNT for these they know exactly where they are. Well close, shifting tide, sand and all that.

I didnt know if it was real or not.I just got it in e-mail and thought it was amusing.

Heard it years ago, only back then it was a Suburban and a guy dynamite fishing. Heard it again a few years later as a new Ford pickup and a guy fishing. Like lots of urban legends, it's funny and you want to believe it, but it probably never happened.

Apparently, everything old is new.....again. Haven't heard this one in 3-4 yrs, it's back?:rolleyes:
