Default Ruined. Irretrievably ruined.


How's this for a wreck? Lesson learned? Don't have your uni in the
back of a car when you crash and burn.

You can't post a picture like that without more of an explanation. Now
you have people worried about you. Are you okay? If that's the uni
what happened to the car? Hope you are ok.

Okay, first off, it wasn't my uni, my jeep, nor my accident. But the
involved guy doesn't post here, and I just couldn't let the image go to
waste. I thought everyone here might like it.

Here's the tale:

I ride with three other guys on trails. One of the guys is a sixteen
year old who just got his driver's license. He's not a bad driver, did
his graduated learner's permit stuff without incident, and his dad-
another one of the trail riders- taught him to drive off-road and
everything.

All that wasn't enough to keep him from plowing a stately ol' deciduous
hardwood on one side of a gravel road. He and his bud John (the fourth
in our riding group) got out of the Jeep Cherokee just about the time it
caught fire.

The unicycle, which was his late Christmas gift, and which he and his
dad had been planning on and saving for, was in the back of the jeep.

The missing crank melted off of it. Look at the picture again. Eek.

The frame's probably salvageable, but that's about it. Heat Tempered
now, just like Digital Dave says.
