    Spring is near!

    It's been nearing the 60's in Washington State the past week or so. This time last year the Cascades were still under quite a few layers of snow...this year they are already clear, with a few patches of snow here and there on the peaks.

    Bleak outside, cabin fever and our new car.

    Yeah. Bike wrecks can be life changing.

    I survived a 55MPH slamming into a Ford Taurus running the stop sign. I hit the engine side of the car and I was told I flew about 60 feet through the air before landing on the pavement.
    My witnesses were 2 cops on break in the parking lot of a convenience store.

    The car I hit was the girl getting off the job at the convenience store.

    Doctors at FT. Bliss in Elpaso patched up my broken hip, 2 destroyed knees, left shattered ankle,
    broken right heel, both broken feet. I had approx over 380 staples holding me together. The doctors
    were used to fixing airborne parachuting accidents. So I had some skilled mechanics fix me.

    Took about a year to walk without a limp. I ride bicycle to shape me up and stay limber.
    Most bikers I knew that went through what I did either died or committed suicide from the
    pain and meds they were hooked on. I have a good woman that has my back when things are scary in life.

    I pulled the morphine IV out when in ICU. I told the Doc it gave me nightmares and that I'd rather
    deal with the pain. Funny part was. He smiled and said, "Sure. No problem."

    Folks here can desk jockey and harp on the evils of using marijuana. All I have to say it is better than oxycontin and I get around and get things done with/using it.

    You look at my profile onebuck and will see I walk the walk when I talk the talk.
    I am no poser.

    Edit: Nice outside down here.

    Bleak outside, cabin fever and our new car.

    Hi,

    I hit a deer while riding my motorcycle at 25 MPH. That was not pretty. Broken bones, road burn, scalped me plus stitches all over and totaled my bike.

    I am little shy now, I almost lost it. Doctors told my wife they almost lost me, I am on blood thinners and when I bleed it's like a stuck pig. That doe was only 120 lbs and I was lucky to see her as she came between two cars and my reaction to be able to hit the kill switch to prevent more damage to me. Even though the bike flipped and I came down on the windshield which broke ribs then I fell onto my left shoulder breaking it. My scalp was folded back and I was bleeding badly from abrasions & cuts. Last thing I did remember after the accident was stepping over to my bike and seeing the doe writhing on the side of the road. I reached for my cell but I had to sit down, so I sat down on the side of the bike and passed out. I then woke up as they were taking me out of the ambulance to the emergency room.

    I did go back to neighbors to gather more info so I could know what happened because a lot in my mind was still foggy. I love wild life but deer are at the bottom for me. I do my hunting at Krogers and really do not have any form of blood lust that must be satisfied by hunting. I used too hunt when I was younger but that was for food on the table since we were poor because my mother divorced my father. My fathers family was affluent and once we moved out of our home to live in Southern Illinois the financial picture changed. Real shocker there!

    I am sure that has been a driving force for my professional life. I worked hard to get where I am now. My life is good now. Reminds me that when we named our Yacht it was 'Life is Good!'. Great times on the water with family and friends. But a lot of hard work to maintain that baby. Money hole in the water. Another story that I may share someday.

    I like to close my posts by the below to extend my attitude and too share;
    Hope this helps.
    Have fun & enjoy!

    Old time Winter, at least that's what the weather analyst call it.

    DeSoto is almost, but not quite, a suburb of Kansas City these days.

    I had the opposite experience. When I moved to Connecticut after living in South Dakota I was freaked because I couldn't see enough of the sky.

    At one time I couldn't believe the sheer distance one could see across the state of Kansas.

    Then sometime later I took a drive down I-84W in Oregon, and hit the lookout point just before Pendleton. I swear you can see Japan from there.

    Edit - I grew up in the swamps of south Louisiana (i.e. 60 miles south of New Orleans) and later in my childhood in the woods of northeast Texas, so (to this day) being able to see more than 50 feet amazes me.

    Some days I look out over the stark beauty that is a Kansas winter landscape and think, "wtf, how did I end here?"

    You guys are crazy for living like that. Seattle is much nicer, at a near-constant low-to-mid 40's through the "winter" (with brief snow breaks from time to time) and in the 70's - 80's during the summer.

    Seriously, I did my time in New Orleans (98 degrees with 100% humidity), Florida (same), 29 Palms, CA (quite a bit lower humidity, but 120+ degrees during the summer), Utah in the mountains (I don't know how cold it was, I doubt there are numbers low enough for it), and Idaho/Oregon in the mountains (felt even colder than Utah). I want to live without crazy weather from here on out haha.

    I no longer refer to our government as such, but as just another corporation. That's how it seems now, anyway.

    Be glad it wasn't Mule Deer like we have down here.
    They tear things up harder.
    Like hitting Moose or Elk.

    Lucky for me. The OIL boom pumping http://www.roachphotos.com/images/ga...umper-1967.jpg

    and Wind Turbines
    http://learnfiberoptic.com/wp-conten...ind-energy.jpg

    scare off the Mule deer from the scrub brushes down here and have drove them to the Mountains. I ride motorcycle mostly and a deer strike sux.

    Out here in the oil boom fraking section of West Texas.
    Bringing in the dogs tonight before it snows here tomorrow.

    I still own a 63 Ford F100. No rust bucket like you Northerners have to deal with because of the salt. We be high desert country here.

    Probably spent more time outside than most folks today.

    Sorry about your car accident. That stinks. I'm glad it wasn't worse, even a $500 isn't too bad.

    I like that expression: "could not pour piss out of a boot even if the instructions were on the heel". I will use it.

    My Thoughts, so the synapse are not all linked. :)

    Seems Free Software (as a whole) has little marketing and legal defense.

    Keep up the good work. Thanks.
