Hey guys…

Just wanna let you know I’m not gonna be participating too much for awhile. I was on my way home from work when I got clipped and spun off the cliff on Angeles Crest Highway! Fortunately, the guy stopped and called it in. My car, a 2006 Scion xB wasn’t so lucky. She’s in two pieces…I bounced end over end for about 300 ft before a tree broke my fall…and my car. My wife picked me up just as they released me from the hospital. Wanna hear something funny? I was discharged before I was admitted…on paper, anyway! Also, my discharge papers read John Doe…so they wrote me off as dead before I even got there.

Now! Here’s the real kicker! No broken bones…no internal bleeding…and they say, no major head or neck injuries…they did four sets of x-rays and a cat scan! I look like a rape victim…bruising and lacerations…I’m sure the pain will kick in when the adreanline works itself out…

In the end, I’m just grateful to be alive…and I WILL get these shows out…just waiting on Charlotte, DC and the sound checks. I’m probably gonna ask a couple of you to distribute. We’ll see how many copies of everything we can get out here. My son said he’ll come by after work today and tomorrow to take care of all the burning. My wife will get this stuff out as soon as it’s done.

Last thing, PM me if you’re interested in distributing to the other members…those that contributed get priority!

Holy cow!!!! So happy that everything is OK…..What a horrific story. Rest up, take care of yourself and don’t worry about anything here, take care of yourself first.

Thoughts with you….and so glad to hear you are not in any worse shape then you already are…

Take care,

Wow, that’s some scary stuff right there! Glad to hear that so far, it’s nothing major, but it sure will make an impact (recovery, having to buy a new car, dealing with insurance and medical bills). Glad you’re still with us!

PM sent.

Wow, reading that makes you realize the priorities in life. DVDs and concerts don’t seem to mean as much when something like that happens. Glad you’re OK, I’m sure the next couple days will be rough with some pain but it sounds like you have a good support group with you. Let’s hope your hiatus doesn’t last as long as mine :wink:
I’m on the other side of the country, but if I can help with anything all you have to do is ask.

Dean ~~

That’s the craziest post I’ve read in years! Holy shit – you’re lucky to be alive….let alone posting at the site.

They say there’s always a silver lining in every cloud. So maybe while recuperating at home…you’re finally gonna have a chance to watch some of the videos that have been piling up since the beginning of this tour.

I hope the recovery goes smoothly and hassle free.
