Oh, oh ohhhhh,,,,,

I am in so much pain right now. I thought I'd take a break from working and take the ATV for a spin in the swamp (it's frozen right now of course, and contains many giant obstacles). Anyway, so I'm tearing along at full speed when the front of the ATV catches on a frozen clump of dirt (the ground is VERY hard right now).

I went flying over the front handlebars and rolled along the ground for a minute. I took seven years of judo, so falling isn't really a big deal. But the bigger problem was that the ATV's inertia caused it to flip up into the air and sail over me… almost…

The ATV came crashing down on top of me, hitting me in the hip with it's rear section. Luckily the front hit the ground first, absorbing most of the blow — although now the handlebars are rather bent (but it could have been much worse). It then rolled once more, and other than the slight warping, it seems to still work fine.

There was a temporary pain in my chest, but other than that I felt fine at the time. About an hour later the real pain kicked in — I have an acute stabbing pain any time I rotate my left leg at the hip and I basically can't walk. If it's not improved by morning I guess I'll have it x-rayed (and will be mostly sitting at the BBQ).

Was it worth it?

Hell yeah!

Would I do it again?

Two words: FUCKIN' A

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
