Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Started a small four-wheel drive shop.
Was always improving his own truck, showing it off, racing it.
Kept breaking things, kept putting, bigger heavier components on the truck.
"Vicious cycle": he'd put on a bigger axle, need a bigger engine, put on bigger tires, need a bigger axle, etc.
After four or five of these "resizings," had the first ever "monster truck" on his hands: Bigfoot.
Decided to drive Bigfoot over a couple of old cars for fun, filmed it with a VHS camera.
Motorsports promoter saw the footage, convinced Bob to crush cars for a live audience.
Was convinced Bigfoot's popularity wouldn't last, resolved to go to every show and competition he could-made a huge difference in the long run.
