Default Got into an accident today

Stopped on a 2 lane highway to wait for on-coming traffic and got hit from the rear by a 95 F250...I had the windows down and heard him lock up his tires, I hit the gas to minize the impact...curled the rear bumper, took out the rear lights, bent the trailer hitch and broke my seat back...Walked away with a sore body and a little headache from the impact...The other driver was a 18 year old kid, distracted...looked up and saw me sitting there too late to do anything but hit the brakes.

Actually I think he was, he had at least a mile of clear site before reaching me...how someone can not see a truck that big is beyond me... I went out and got 3 estimates, $1,100 to $1,300 in damage. The kids dad didn't seem to have any problem with wanting to pay for the damage...It could have been a lot worse had it not been for a big ass trailer hitch on my truck matching up with the snow plow mount on the other truck...

I was a little sore for a couple of days, had a scheduled doctor's appointment and she checked my back and neck for me. Tomorrow I'm getting a massage... I'll be feeling good and hopefully getting a check for the damages... Want to get it all wrapped up before I head to AZ on Friday...Heading out to have a week of fun, little vacation time at my happy playgrounds.

Mostly Sipapu, Jemez & Gallina. Click on the video links in my siganture and look for those names. I and headed to Sipapu for our annual week-long camping & riding trip next Monday. I'll have lots of new HD video footage to post whe I get back.
