Not certain, I once saw here cover 20' of concrete on her knees in less that 2 seconds.

Good question, However she was not walking for the rest of the day after 20' feet of concrete, she certainly was not tired.

"how mad" does not factor in at all. I warned her in a strong tone of voice that it was not a good idea for her 98lb butt to put a leash on my 80lb shepard and take it for a walk.

If she thinks she can walk that dog, I think she can certainly go fly a kite.

I love DW and I am buying stock in bandages...

No Chevy involved in that one . Looks more like a Ford. You have to flip over to read direction.. Later RJD

It's a Dodge RAM. Notice the flared dually fenders -- definitely not a Ford. Notice the lack of an OnStar antenna -- definitely not a Chevy.

It's so obvious it's a RAM truck, though any truck under the same conditions may of rolled also

In my experience the "how mad she is going to be" is exponential not constant. Regardless, i like your work here, its fun to apply science

Because I got the information from the horse's mouth.

True, but it is exponential only in the understanding that anything over "mildly annoyed" can be quantified as equal to "Galactially p***ed" because ∞+1 still equals ∞.

Therefore, for all mathematical intents and purposes, it can be considered a constant.

People who can't make money transporting rvs have not done their homework. It's long, hard work but done properly there is decent money to be made!
I've thought about transporting rvs. How do you get into doing that and how do you do it properly as you mentioned?
