Big Thanks
« on: August 28, 2015, 11:53:36 PM »
to Brent Marshall and the other fellow who helped me out of the woods and to the hospital this evening.    I ended up with 6 stitches and a mild concussion but otherwise I am fine.  Your actions and assistance are greatly appreciated.

I am being released this afternoon.  Due to concussion I have no idea of where or how I wrecked.

Glad you will be ok.  Heal fast, but don't push it till the doc says you can ride again.

Is the bike ok though?  You didn't mention the bike!!!  8)
Shin guards! We don't need no stinkin' shin guards!

I believe you crashed under the billboard at south loop, just before the trail goes back under 465. it's the log jump right under the billboard. I slowed down to see if you need help, but two people had already been helping you. Get well!

Thanks for the info.  I have no memories of anything of the whole ride let along the crash.   Concussions will do that .
Once again my wife and I want to thank everyone who provided me asistance after my wreck .

Well, I cannot be sure I rode out.  I have very little recall of anythjng about the wreck or how I got to the parking lot .  My memory is compketely blank up till i was driven to the hospital.    I really didn' t start forming real memories till after i came of the CAT scan machine
