LOL... I'm not sure I'm the man for that particular job. I'll probably stick to mt. biking and climbing for the time being. Still, with the right truck, the right wheelchair & enought high grav beer, who knows...

I like where they said “The man spilled his soda pop, but he wasn’t upset." A friend of mine saw that and said it was probably some kind of code for "shit his pants."

"Accident". Yeah right. The kid just backed straight up into the truck, jammed it in tight enough to stay, didn't start screaming bloody murder at the driver and other folks at the truck stop, and went on a wild ride.

Another thing--the truck gas pumps are usually pretty far from the normal gas pumps--I doubt he was a passenger in a semi, so he likely had to make an effort to go over to that area.

I don't believe it, I'm calling BS on the kid. Hope he had fun and impressed his friends.

No accident.

I just got a visual of some kid in a wheelchair getting the ride of his life down the freeway in front of a semi...that's frickin hilarious.

I agree with Steve, between Paw Paw & Kalamazoo his fun wells have probably run dry long ago.

I'm impressed the word incredulous appeared on a popular media piece.
