Another One Bit The Dust!!

js250 js250
As I sit here feeling sorry for myself, I figured maybe some of you could get a couple laughs for my adventure yesterday. You ever have one of those days?

--We decided to try out t new riding area for the dirtbikes...could not find it!
--My feet swelled up from too much truck time, about 4 hours from getting lost...right before we went back to our usual area.
--My bike started right up...it never does.
--I took my usual trail over the hill and on to a track...ended up miscalculating, jumping the track, landed on the front wheel and went over the bars.--did I mention the high rate of speed????

So--long story short, I seriously wrenched by back, landed on one side of my leg and helmet and....my knee braces saved my butt! My knee is swollen annd black from bruising due to the pads, my back is seriously wrenched and my left ankle is sprained--but no broken bones, no head injury (need a new helmet though...) and I will live to ride another day.

One the plus side--I did not have to ride my bike back to the truck--we had the 4-wheeler and I could not have ridden to begin with. AND it was a hell of a ride!! What a jump, wish I would not have overshot the landing, but OMG!! Now I know what I can do on a jump---going to get it right next time!!

---------Tell us one of your war stories...bikes, motorcycle, horses, hiking----------

Please--everyone is making me feel worse on this end, they are all freaked out about me being more careful and avoiding my usual trails....

Steff from what you have told me about your accident, I am with everyone on your end telling you that you need to be careful. I am glad you are okay and have some scrapes or bumps but you only have one life to live. Take it easy and be careful I am glad you are a smart chick and had pads on as well.

I second that, in every way.

One lesson I've learned is that I heal much slower at nearly 60 - than I did in even my 40s. Therefore I steadfastly avoid activities likely to cause serious injury. Call me a wimp - it's just sensible to me.

on our high school senior trip, I got lost in the ski resort. This was also my first time skiing. I was traipsing through the woods, onto roads, and burned probably a million calories since I was on skis and couldn't take them off. Then I fell into a creek.

I didn't get any injuries, but I am emotionally scarred for life! Let's not mention how I made the bus 2 1/2 hours late and got seriously made fun of.

I haven't done an extreme sport since, so I'm very proud of anyone who can get out there and do it regardless of the risks!! You go, girl!

I hit a railroad crossing going 50 in my Camaro once... Well, my t-tops weren't latched for whatever reason, and they both went for a flight. Luckily, they landed in the ditch on opposite sides of the road, and all I had to do was clean the mud out of them!

As far as injuries from stupid stunts, none to speak of here.. but there is the time I was riding a bicycle at about 8 years old and the neighbors new clothesline clotheslined me. lol
