“Look Dad,” my son said, pointing to the iPhone sitting on top of the truck’s tonneau cover as we pulled in front of the house about 10 minutes later. OMG.
Luckily, the phone had survived the 4-mile ride from Grass Valley to Nevada City on surface streets, and the 55 mph drive on the freeway.
The wallet was gone, but we retraced the route and found it on the shoulder of the freeway near Idaho Maryland Road. I picked it up, and nothing was missing.
Do not try this at home, but I was impressed that even a thin iPhone didn’t bounce off the top.
Needless to say, my wife was not so impressed at our adventure. “I’m going to glue them to your head,” was the response.
