    Sorry for not making Carlisle

    Well I apologize ot everyone that I said I was going to come, I was driving our 3/4 with some of my shop stuff to show everyone at . I was driving through the mountains on some back roads I take, I was cutoff by a crotch rocket passing someone on a blind turn on the hill and in the woods I had my F-250 I slammed on the brakes and flipped the truck down a hill. It landed up against a tree. I have a broken collar bone, a couple broke ribs and im cut up fairly. Kristen has a fractured wrist. But im glad we are ok. So I apologize to everyone the truck is a total loss I will post pictures soon, I know the roof hit my head and I snapped the steering column its pretty bad.
    Hope to see you all next year though!
    Mike,
    Your Civic may have 1.6 Liters, But My Mountain Dew has 2.

    Glad you and the better half made it out all right....could have been much worse. Maybe a few cold beers would help keep the swelling down????
