    Crappy story, actually.

    Was practicing doing drops off the small retaining wall on the side of my driveway (total drop about
    1.5 feet), but the landing is kinda sketch
    - you've got a douglas fir right there ;)

    Anyway, I built up a small jump with a piece or railroad tie (flat) and a 2x6 (the ramp part), so
    maybe a 2' drop total, including a bit extra for air time. I was hitting it all day, but wasn't
    confident enough to do it with clipless yet, so I had running shoes on. Bad idea.

    Long story short, went off the jump, foot slipped off the pedal, landed foot first, then bike into
    leg, then flipped... somehow missed the tree. It was actually a really calm fall. I didn't even
    notice the injury until I looked down and had blood running down my leg.

    It was bad enough the red cross wouldn't let me give blood for a year. Thats ok, I give enough on
    the trails!

    Anyway, that was about a year and a half ago. Picture was taken by throwing my 2-days-healed leg on
    the scanner. Glad I've got a digital camera now! The wound was actually pretty deep, the bike went
    in, then twisted out. I still haev 8 of the 10 marks visible. Fun times :)

    It wasn't all that bad. Was a bit stiff for a week or so. The worst part was that I was hitting it
    all day long, hitting a bigger drop elsewhere, an dwas fine all day. Just that one time I slipped
    off... ouch!

    Nice burn, glad that was the worst of it (skin heals fine, it's bone and tendon that really get ya).

    What really has me freaked is the pair of pics of that poor Sugar...I can totally see that
    happeneing to mine (me and my poor cookie-cutter...ha). Hopefully that ovalized and
    compound-radiused down tube they used for 2k2 will keep that nightmare at bay...ugh.
