POWERstroke put to test!

I am going to share a story that happened last night.
It wasn't safe so don't try it........
I was in the hay field with my boys about an hour from home. A guys was supposed to be there at 6pm to look at a horse. I have never met nor did I know anything about this guy...... Well he didn't show, around dark he called and said he was almost there. I was pulling out of hay field with approx 10,000lb behind the PSD. When I realized this guy I have never met is going to my farm and there is knowone there but my lil lady. Don't know why but a panic set in, I live a mile off the blacktop...... My only two neighbors are on vacation.... I called one of my buddies and he was fishing... He said he would head that way, didn't make me feel better. Little lady is meeting this guy about 10 min from house about now.
So I told the boys to buckle up! I STOOD on the PSD, towing 10k at 80 mph most of the way. Lady called and they were 2 miles from house and I was 20 miles. I hammered it and the truck was like, dang I love this!!!!!
We hit the gravel road for the last mile clicking about 40mph. When I hit that last stretch I was ready to kill this poor guy! I slid truck trailer and hay into the barnyard. The poor guys eyes are HUGE!!!! They had already loaded horse in his lil trailer. And he was like I can't back up can you turn my trailer. Iwas like sure! Feeling much better now knowing lil lady was fine. He counted out the money I turned him around and sent him on his way.
I asked the lil lady if she heard us coming around the ridge? She said it sounded like a pissed off Amtrack with a SCREAMING TURBO!!!!! She said if the poor guy would have been thinking anything hearing you coming scared him to death!
There was no reason for my panic, except this screwed up world! and the poor guy did nothing but come to buy a horse.......
But the PSD will tow as fast as you have the marbles to push her! and mine is bare stock.
I do not recommend towing 10k at 80+ or on a gravel road at 40+. But if you have to the truck will support it!!!!!!!
Sorry so long, just had to tell it.
