The heated Beast put up quite a fight, it just wouldn't go gone! Dangerous work! They hit it good yet still kept sneaking out. I'll be sure priority will be the order of the day with an emergency such as this...!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact that you can see water coming out of the lead truck due to centripetal force in the corners....rockin it on the way!
