Skunk 1 Miltary hack 1 YUK!
« on: September 15, 2009, 10:55:51 AM »
 I had to come to work today at 4am to let some people in the building.
(I had forgotten how DARK it is at 3:45 am)! :o
I fire up the rig and off I go, (I gotta change out that 5" headlamp)!
I get 1/2 way up this country road and there he is.
He jogs left, no right, no left..
(Is he lining up on me or just drunk)? ???
"CHEESE AND CRACKERS"! :o This is gonna end badly!
(Good thing on my 3 wheels)
Thump, thump over I go, what become of my, "drunk skunk" I won't know til I go home.
I get to work, "Wow is it skunk morning out or what?? The parking lot smells bad".
I push the rig into the garage, and go about my business.
A few minutes later, I realize the smell is following me!
I must have gotten squirted when I hit the little bugger.
I go out to the garage WOW! :o What a smell!
I washed the rig 3 times so far and the smell is still there.
Farkin' skunk!
Joe
What's that smell? Oh, it's ME! ;)

Try tomato juice, it works ok, and you can have a bloody mary with the leftover !

  Try a cup of kerosene poured into 5 gallons of hot water.  Hey Joe you want that brake light switch I dug up?

  Don't know if it would keep you from hitting a deer, but you could always ride it deer hunting and it would mask your scent and maybe lure in a nice big buck.  Ever smell that doe in heat deer lure?  Sort of smells like a skunk ;D ;D.  Will.

Maybe the skunk pong would be a safety enhancement with respect to car drivers when you're stopped on the crown of the road making a turn.  Sure, they don't see you, they don't hear you, but they might just smell you, so you live to ride another day.
