    I wrecked it

    Ill post pictures tomorrow, but it went something like this... I was hauling ass through Westguard Pass, enjoying myself and blowing off some steam, and I decided to back off it after a while, well i was doing a minimal 45 mph pace when i came upon a VERY steep downhill section leading into a turn, well I got airborne with all 4 tires, hit the ground, did everything i could to save it, hit sand, went side ways and went right through a road side pole. I kept going and slammed the drivers side door into a giant boulder and then bounced back onto the roadway... the car would not move. The front suspension is massively shot, the front tires are pushed back into the wheel well, and the drivers side door and underneith it are heavily damaged... other than that, i saved my friend and I's life with some quick reflexes and not panicing in the situation.

    its not pretty, but its not as bad as i thought either. The drivers side is pretty messed up, along with a suspension component (the bottom part of the A-Arm) being crumpled, the drivers side door and under panel are shot, will have to be replaced. Its going on the lift tomorrow to at least get the suspension fixed. The rims are toast, bent and marred, so its time for a new set. The front bumper is crumpled on the passengers side, but not too bad. There are rocks that have my steering geometry jacked up as well lodged in just about every piece of suspension work. Oh yeah, and not to mention my insurance will not be covering it because my wife neglected to mention that i didnt have coverage as of the 5th of this month.

    Wow! Good to hear you're not hurt, sorry about the car too.

    And I quote the Beach Boys:
    "If she had a set of wings, man I know she could fly"

    Yeah I would look into getting some kinda antidepressant and stay on that for a while. I know a lot about the diff. prescribed drugs out there. My ex use to be pre-med student so I picked up quite a bit from her. You might want to look into prozac, paxil, or even welbutrum.
