[MV] And on a lighter note.

Dont want to get too deeply into MV injuries - I think we have made the
point that these things can be dangerous to yourself and others.

Let's turn this around and ask what is the silliest / funniest /
weirdest thing that ever happened to you all on the MV front ?

I remember a story by Hank La Barbara (DUKW page, access from MVPA
page) about a DUKW trip on one of the great lakes which ended up with a
race between him and a plastic boat owner to get to one of the leaving
ramps on a busy day. The other guy obviously thought Hank's DUKW was
just some kind of boat, and got all wound up when Hank headed for the
ramp ahead of him, and banged on some more throttle to try and beat him
to it. Course when Hank got to the ramp the DUKW just levered itself
out and off down the road - leaving the boat owner to crash into the
ramp with a loud grating noise....
