My wife and I were traveling down the Interstate in Texas 1972 going to Willie Nelsons 1st, 4th of July picnic. I was in the Air Force, just bought my new 1972 Karmann Ghia. Heading , or going in the opposite direction on the Interstate was an early sunroof, about a 1960 with the sunroof open, probably traveling about 70 mph. A girl was driving. The dude that was in the passengers seat was doing a handstand, on his seat, with his legs out the sunroof. And.....he was naked. Guess what else was hanging out the sunroof! Those WERE the days.

Geez, there's so many crazy things, but my Navy days were some of the funniest and most herbally related! There was this tunnel near Norfolk and we'd be going like 55 in a Navy vehicle, shut it off, pump the gas a bunch, then turn it back on and blow the muffler. Pretty loud in a tunnel and all the other cars would swerve all over when they heard it...Once I checked out a van from the motor pool with only 93 miles on it. I was backing out and didn't realize there was a chain across the aisle, hit it pretty hard and bashed in the corner. When I got back to the boat they asked me what happened and I said "I dunno, it was like that when I got it"...Another time they sent me to get some tritium water in our old 69, 70 step side Chevy truck and when I got back everyone came running outd hollering that tritium water is supposed to be transported in a lead lined vehicle. I was like "Hey, y'all pitched me the keys and told me to go get it, so I did!"...Once our boat was in Groton and at the time it was too big to get under the bridge so we had to moor over by the Fulton (sub tender) and I talked the Section Leader into making me Duty Driver. I would ferry guys back and forth to the Sub Base and we'd all be drinking, but one time I'd just dropped some guys off at the boat and was heading back to the base and there was this guy talking on a pay phone with his car parked next to it. While turning I hit his car big time, picked the driver's side nearly off the ground, scraped it all down the entire side and when I cleared it, the damn thing hit the ground and bounced 3 or 4 times! He had his back to the car and I could just imagine him trying to explain how his car was probably totaled while on a phone call! When I turned that van in, it probaly had 30 beer cans rolling around in it and plenty of herp dust all over the engine cover. It actually set off a Congressional investigation on drug use on subs. It wasn't just a job, it was an adventure! LOL!
