It's all good, Jerry! You did seem a little out of sorts, so thanks for the words.
A 24ft ladder is a beast, especially when doing the wah-toozy on a major interstate at rush hour!
I once witnessed a 6-8 foot fiberglass stepladder fall out of a truck doing 80mph in I-85 in Atlanta. It was right in front of an 18 wheeler, thankfully, and did no harm to the truck (I don't reckon it did, anyhow). That thing looked like a bomb went off, as it just EXPLODED into a gajillion little pieces of blue fiberglass! The remaining grizzly carcass slid over to the inside pull-off lane and was barely identifiable as having once been a ladder. Amazing the things that can happen with ladders.
Getcha come new ratchet straps in the morning, after you've processed that big, tall drink all night. *GRIN*
