Yeah I figured I was a little late...and a dollar short. I thought I was at the end when I posted but I was in the middle. :crazy: Oh well. So I'm a little lost - was this originally a question or a statement? Oh let's just let it be - looks like trouble if you ask me. :biggrin1: I got alot of catching up to do I've been laying low for a while...hehe...however, no time now I'll have to do it next week. :mouthzip1: :wine:

I know I'm getting in late on this discussion.

imagine pins stickin out of your legs ,,,,layed up in a hospital ,,,???? oooohhhhh yeah ...wires stickin out of you cause your skull was fractured cause you were so loaded you forgot your seat belt ...

No need to imagine the wires sticking out of your skull because you forgot your seatbelt when you had "only a couple of beers" and you hit a bump and fell out of your Jeep. My dad has plenty of pictures of my brother with the wires coming out of his skull when he was in a friend's Jeep that just hit the curb outside his apartment coming home one night after a few celebratory beers from winning their soccer game. That image is also firmly planted in my memory from being there not expecting him to live. I don't really need the pictures.

My brother was the passenger and didn't put on his seat belt because it was so close to home. They weren't going fast either while coming into the parking lot. It could have been just like running over a downed tree branch on any trail. The bumping around and not being secured into the Jeep while he was slightly intoxicated caused him to fall out and land on his head and fractured his skull.

He ended up in a coma for 2.5 weeks, recovery for months, lost his sense of smell, damaged his eyesight, suffered memory loss and I believe my parents paid medical bills for years (maybe even still). This happened 10 years ago when he was a freshman in college. I still remember the week in hospital that I spent with my family after receiving that early morning call about him and I had to go pick up his twin on the way to Orlando (I was in Savannah, twin at FSU and injured twin at UCF). Talk about stress? It's not just yourself that you affect by simply having a couple of beers when in a Jeep on the trail or not. My brother wasn't even driving and the consequences affected more than just him. You should have seen all of the friends and family that spent an entire week or longer waiting with us at the hospital. They came from all over.

I'm not saying I'm an angel when it comes to D&D all of the time. But it's always a good reminder that it doesn't take much at all for something devasting to happen. For me, when it comes to wheeling and drinking, I usually wait until I'm back at camp afterwards.

Let it go, the law says you can't drink and drive if you do and the :oops: get you, you are done. If you don't care go ahead, I hope is not you or any of your family members the next one it gets kill by a drunk driver. :jail:

I know, I said I'm no angel all of the time. I know my limits and it also takes me an hour to finish one drink usually. I rarely go out partying anymore either. When I do now and even think that I've had more than I should past what is considered legal (1 drink per hour is argued as acceptable, more than that not), then I realize that a cab ride home is much cheaper and safer than a DUI or hospital bill on any day.

Since it appears that we all pretty much agree, no new issues are being posted, and it has been asked to be closed, I am closing this topic.

If you don't fight for the trails, there won't be any trails to fight for.

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
Zig Ziglar

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." ....

John Stuart Mill
