    Last night was our very first gig, and went pretty damn well, even though there were only like 12 ppl there (gotta start somewhere!).

    Well after a whole night of my drummer not leaving his drumkit - at all - we finish our set, pack up and away we go.

    My drummer took off, with his kit in the back of his puckup.

    I wasnt far behind.

    So I'm cruising down the freeway, at 2am in a pretty heavy rainstorm and BAM, I hit something... Dead on...

    A Box.

    A U-haul packing box.

    The same box my drummer packed his kick drum in....

    It's also the same box that got stuck underneath my car...

    Now his drum went from O to |

    Awesome. Looks like you got a binary drumset.

    It's like a drummachine, but with one complimentary angry-ass drummer.

    But seriously, did he leave his tailgate down?
  5. It sounds cruel, but IMO if someone packs their stuff in the back of a pickup, they deserve what happens...

    OO-fah! Which drum was it?

    Off topic, I love IHOP pancakes, they're so fluffy and delicious.

    :confused: Pickup trucks aren't appropriate for hauling cargo (i.e. gear)?

    Maybe that should be the next piece of gear he buys!

    If you don't bother to strap stuff down or cover the back of the truck, then bad stuff could happen driving on the freeway in nasty conditions.

    Do you have a pic of the kick drum? :p

    I'm more of a Cracker Barrel man myself.
  13. Problem is its a lot harder to turn a bass drum into a Cracker Barrel by hitting it with a car.

  14. Not when you don't secure your load. Stuff bouncing around in the back of a van is sorta safe, but stuff bouncing around in the back of a pickup tends to occasionally bounce out...
