My long awaited, comprehensive, in depth somewhat accurate report on the the State of the Caney should come tomorrow. The infamous Big Bird AKA Buzzard Boy and I shall float from Hurricane bridge to Carthage. We plan to either go over, under or around the dam. We shall avail ourselves of the shuttle service provided by Brent, AKA Kayak Boy (Gil's name)and will be fishing primarily for fish.

Big Bird intends to sample the O2 content of the water by trying to breathe underwater. I shall test the downstream temperature by wading out to my personals and see how long I can stand there without switching sides or making an adjustment. It will be my longest outdoor adventure since I tried to remove a rock wall with my body. All the stitches and staples are out so I should be just about water tight, now. Big Bird leaves on Saturday for Alaska and I have promised to get him thrugh this in most of one piece.
I shall report back on the morrow.

Okay so I've missed the run-in with the concrete wall. What's the story there?

1 motor scooter with faulty steering.
1 concrete culvert.
1-stone wall.

Scooter hits culvert at 15-20 mph.
Body hits stone wall at slightly reduced speed.
Scooter is 150% totaled.
Body is a little better.
Stone wall is just fine.

Final count:
63 stitches
10 staples
three re-broken fingers
three-rebroken ribs
tendon damage to right foot
ugly icky damage to left knee
huge hematoma to left hip.
crack in pelvis
lots of little leaks and spurts
Horrible damage to my ego.

Prognosis: I'll do just fine if I stick to four wheels or a boat.

You forgot to add the "I told you so" from the wife.

Holy crap. \:o So this is a separate incident from the day you drove off the lot with it and got hit by the girl? If so, you better stick with 4-wheels and a boat for sure.
