I first actually jumped on the ATV (brand new). But when I glanced up, I realized the train was right on top of me and I wasn't going to have time to start it and get it in gear. So I jumped off, grabbed the front and rear racks, and started dragging it sideways away from the tracks. All of a sudden, I wasn't hanging on to it anymore. My hands were just empty, and the train was whipping by about a foot from my face. Never felt a thing--not a jerk or thump or anything.

When the realization finally struck that the train had hit my ATV, I looked down the tracks and saw my ATV flying about 150 feet through the air. I still can't understand why the ATV didn't explode into pieces. The train just "tossed it," and it landed on it's tires in a muddy ditch.

Yea, it didn't look as bad as I would figure it would have. You for sure had someone looking out for you that day

The train just clipped the front corner (I had the ATV about 2-3 feet away from the tracks when it got hit).

Yeah, I must be a cat with 9 lives. I think I've only got or two left though. The day before the "train incident," I was struck twice by a cottonmouth in the left ankle. Thank you Rocky Snake Boots!

Somewhat akin to being struck by lighting on a beautiful sunshiny day, too, as that cottonmouth got you during late December?

Folks, I'm telling you, if you value your safety, best to stay a long way away from BSK! \:D
Every day, he is an accident looking for a place to happen!

I think it was around January 12th. A sudden sunny warm day when temps climbed into the mid 70s. I walked across a small pond's earthen dam, and the cottonmouth was curled up sunning himself on the dam. Never saw him until he got me.

I think BSK and Shelby from Axe Men need to hookup and work together.

BSK,

Were there any consequences from the railroad company? Was there a report filed or anything of that nature?

Consequences? You should have seen the litany of police cars, railroad officials, and ambulances lined up when I went back to recover the ATV! They already knew who owned the ATV (called Honda with the VIN). They were going to arrest me for being on the tracks. The train conductor was convinced he had killed me and rescue workers were looking up in trees for my body. Yeah, there were consequences! Luckily, in the end, everyone just wrote it off as being a bad experience (I was told the train engineer was seriously traumatized, thinking he had killed me) and no charges were filed. I really had no idea it was literally illegal to be on a railroad track right-of-way at any location other than a crossing.

Now, I bet you wouldn't walk or ride down a track again even if it was legal
