posted in another section that my work truck broke down the other day. so off today with the mechanic to pick it up, hour and a half away. managed to get it back to the workshop ok. In the meantime i'm having to use another one of our other branches trucks, a small 6 pallet truck. i was coming back from a delivery this arvo empty sitting on 100kph "110kph zone" it was blowing a gale here in S.A. a big gust of wind hit the back of the truck and spun me round 180deg on the bitumen, then i ended up on the grass in the middle of the road and did another 180deg. it's just lucky for me and other cars that it happened where it did. i don't know how i didn't roll it. i had no time to do anything, it happened in a matter of seconds. i ended up in the middle strip of road/grass facing the right way. had a cpl of cars pull over to see if i was ok. i gave them a wave and merged back in to traffic, shaking like a leaf and sat on 50kph all the way back to work. now to be honest i really probably shouldn't been doing 100kph with the conditions like they were, but id'e left my work keys back at work and trying to get back to work before they locked up on me. i'm just so glad no one else got hurt and i have learn't a big lesson. drive to the conditions. anyone in S.A. take care on the roads as it's pretty shocking out there at the moment. i saw another van that had been pushed into a pole near work too, i'm sure the wind would have been a major factor in that too. .
