Thanks everyone

for the concerns and well wishes.

the accident was a wierd thing all together, We where suppose to leave On tues, but, I had a nightmare job that carried over to wed. I picked up rick and my exact words to him was " All the signs are telling me not to go and something really bad is going to happen. I had my rhino on the front of the trailer sideways, followed by ricks rhino straight and his new cat straight on the trailer. We talked about how bad things happen to some people with trailers, like flats, and bearings and such. and rick mentioned he never had any problems towing before ( can you say jinx?) WE got to the 78 where it meets the s22 and had to slam on the brakes to keep from rear ending the trailer in front of us, after that, I started paying extra close attention to the road. well, I see this car in my lane and it looks like it's trying to pass some trailers, I see a gap in front of the lead trailer and think she's trying to get in there, well The gap was closing and she wasn't slowing down or trying to merge, I called out to rick to look as I was slowing down trying to give her more time to make the gap, at the last second I realize she is going fast and not going to merge so I turned to the right and gassed it, she went on by my truck by inches( rick saw her face, it was a blank stare) she never saw us or the trailer and she slammed right into the driverside corner, bounced off and spun around. I jumped out and all the witnesses where screaming she's dead.
I noticed, I know the guy driving the truck from the other direction(bviernow)
he tells us she was running people off the road for miles and he watched the whole thing happen. She completly separated the trailer from my truck, no damage to the truck or its' occupants. My rhino should be repairable, ricks will need a new frame at the least. No pictures of the rhino's right now, but i got this one of her truck. she bent the frame she hit that hard.

Thanks Brad and your wife!!! You guys are the best for helping us so much, thanks to everyone for the well wishes, sorry for not returning so many calls and text messages. After we finally got to camp at G i put my phone away.

wow.. you must have some tough ass rhino's... .. good thing you guys are all good..

i would have your truck looked at too... that much damage to hers and ripping the trailer from your truck, cannot be good on your frame.. just a thought..
