Found this on a local forum today. Figured I should post it up.
Morals of the story...
#1 NEVER, EVER transport Acetylene without a screw-on safety cap securely in place.
#2 If you do smell gas - don't touch ANYTHING. Get away!
"So my time almost came to an end this morning... im very lucky to be alive.
First of all, GO HUG YOUR WIFE/HUBBY and tell them you love them.
i had an acetylene bottle in my truck, the valve was bumped so slightly and over night the truck filled with the gas. i noticed the smell, and opened the doors to air out the truck. i drove the truck out of the garage to get some more air movement. i went to roll the pass side window down and as soon as i touched the power windows. BAM. with me in the truck. i lost all hearing out of my right ear and got a scratch on the back of my head. all things considering, im alive.
so now ive got the question out to toyota about a 2012 TT. 125 to canada only, 15 in standard. i want a standard...
pictures tell 1000 words.
dont take any minutes or seconds you have for granted... it may be your last...
My life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body... But rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming... WOW! What a Wild Ride!

Wyldman: The Cowbell... If you are a club member and you're on one of our wheelin' trips. If you get stuck on an obstacle and have to be pulled out by your winch or someone elses winch/strap. You earn the Cowbell.

poorboy: Wyldman, I got to see the passing of the bell at the meeting and learned quite a bit about the tradition.
