well my knee was feeling better yesterday so i went riding and and had a bad spill at about suppertime-6:30 and i just got home from the hosp. at about 1:30am i hit this jump will put up a pic after but from what my friend bill (the firefighter) told me he said take the air i got in the pic and double it cause he told me i was at the least 35 ft up and went about 80ft before the quad nosedived and landed on the front bumper slamming me face first into the ground and then having the 500lb quad slam onto my back with the rear grab bar im thanking god i put some padding on that now but anyways i have never felt so much pain in my life and i hope to never have to feel it again im never hitting that jump ever again its a deathtrap waitting to happen as it is now the little bones that run from your toes up your foot well 2 of mine are cracked on my right foot so i cant be on that for 2-3 weeks and then i had my pelvis and hip xrayed but it shows everything as ok and far as my back/ spine well we're not sure so as of yet i got my right footthat i cant put weight on and my left leg i cant put weight on or move at this point cause of the pain that runs in my lower back /spine i can move them and i do have feeling but the pain is so much in my back that i just rather not move from the waist down any more then i have to

so anyone that is even gogin to think about hitting big jumps best think of what can happen if it dont go right before they do and think if they can deal with the aftermath

ill be happy to get back out riding next year or soon if i can but it will be along time before i hit any big jumps again

Wow dude, that really blows. Lately it sounds like you should stay away from quads, heh. Good luck with your recovery, hopefully your back isn't in too bad a shape. Keep us updated and hang in there bro.

Not to make light of your situation, but it sounds like you got off easy!! I have known people to get hurt a lot worse and not even come close to taking a hit like you did! You are one lucky guy!! If it werent for bad luck I'd have no luck at all! My last serious hit put me in the hospital for 8 days( 4 per surgery) and was stuck in cast for a year and a half. Man a hit like that, your lucky you arent all busted up! My hit wasnt even that bad. As far as tylenol and codeine, it wouldnt even start to take the edge off I dont know why they even bother with it! Vicodin or Demoral ( not sure about the spelling on that one) Morphine etc is all that worked on me, sort of, it still hurt just tolerable. You will be sore for quite a while. I hope you get better quick and I am sorry that you went down, I hate to hear stuff like that it SUCKS!

looks pretty bad, atleast it's not that swollen.

this one time i was drunk and ran... because someone was chasing me... anyway, i think i ran around a table and when i did i stepped on the side of my foot, like rolled my ankle and it was swollen like a hard on. i can't get my shoe on the next morning. and my ankle and around my toes was all bruised. everyone thought i broke it.

i think the worst part about that is the waiting to get back on the quad. i'd put around the lawn in first gear or something. you know... take the edge off.
