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,

Sounds like that was nasty, glad to hear you and the wife are basically OK, mend soon, I'm sure you both must be hurting.

No apologies necessary .....

Mike:
Glad to hear that you both are alright - the truck and cargo can be replaced.
Take care of yourselves and we'll see you at another event.
