It happens. Sometimes you're out there on the road, cruising along just fine, when a tire blows. Sometimes it's an overheated radiator. Other times it's a smoked transmission.
The point is, you still need to get where you're headed.
The problem is, the truck is full of all of your worldly possessions. It's pulling a trailer that's hauling your car, which is also stuffed with tons of your crap...and you're somewhere about a thousand miles from home.
That's what I'm thinking happened to the guy in the picture. I mean, who in hell would find themselves in this position voluntarily? That's a U-Haul box truck towing an open trailer with a pickup truck on it, which in turn is hauling a travel trailer.
Can you imagine how badly that guy wanted to leave where he was? lmao
