A lesson learned

Today's hike may be slightly hindered by the fact that I almost tore my leg off on the four wheeler yesterday.
Okay, it's not really that bad. My calf is pretty banged and bruised but I can still walk and will definitely still be in the Conecuh in just a few short hours.
So what did I learn from my experience yesterday? NEVER, EVER, EVER, even when it's an accident and the four wheeler feels like its about to flip, EVER let your foot slide off the pedal. That's very important. A second longer and my right foot would have had an upclose and personal view of an ATV tire.
And no Mom, I didn't have on a helmet. I don't see where that would have saved my leg, but I understand your concern. I can't afford to lose any brain cells if I fall off and bump my head. I have a hard enough time with the few I have. :)
