Title: Real Life Dumb A** Stories Here
Post by: Responsible_Angler on November 09, 2017, 02:27:16 PM
About two years ago I took a day off work because I knew the fish were going to bite like there will be no tomorrow.  Got up at 4:30 AM to be catching fish by 6:00 AM on a local lake about thirty minutes from my house. I get to the lake and unload all the kayak gear, tackle bag, lunch, water, clothing that I might need and a bunch of other stuff.  I'm all excited and ready to do some serious fish catching so I park the truck in the parking lot and reach over for my fishing rods that I left at home leaning up against the garage.  Swearing and talking to myself all the way back home. I'm sure glad my kids weren't with me on that outing.

I have one similar, but mine was done during pheasant season. It was a nice Saturday, and I convinced the wife to let me go. I loaded up all my gear, and the dog and headed out for the afternoon. The dog and I hunted for 2 hour approx. we covered probably 1.5 miles of field and brush. when we got back to the mini van, I couldn't find my keys. Immediately panic rushed thru my body. Fortunately I had a cell phone, and called my wife immediately. Not to bring the 2nd set of keys, because I was to cheap to get a 2nd set. Seeing how it only came with 1 key when I bought the vehicle. So we found a lock smith that would meet me on a Saturday afternoon. He said it would take him about an hour to get to me, he was coming from another county also. So I loaded the gun and got the dog and we retraced our steps, from the earlier hunt. No luck. I was in the parking lot when the lock smith got there. In frustration, I put my hands on the drivers door and looked down at the ground. When I picked my head up, and looked across the roof. The keys were laying 12" from my eyes. When I got out initially, I laid them there and never pocketed them. Fortunately he  charged me 1/4 of what it was for an emergency service call. Any time I fish or hunt, the first thing I do is pocket the keys. Then check at least another 2 times to make sure!

I did some thing similar, loaded the kayak fishing pole and fishing gear life jacket. Drive 40 minutes unload everything and realize the paddle is still in the garage.
