Ok so this wreck is the reason I have a maverick now. Last June I flipped my long travel rhino on the pavement going around a corner. Yes liquid courage had a lot to do with it and I was not wearing my seatbelt thinking hey I'm just going back down to the camp ground. I came out if it with my arm getting between the cage and road. I had to take ride in the ambulance and spent 10 days in the trama unit and Vanderbilt in Nashville tn because local hospital couldn't do anything with it. Cut tendon in half going to thumb and damaged the ones going to fingers. I also ended up with compartment syndrome from all the swelling. 3 surgerys later and I'm all better except some nice scars. Also totaled rhino.

I was told it went over 4 or 5 times end over end and still to this day not sure how it happened but I did learn a hell of a lesson.

yea no road rash just 12 staples in the top of my head. I was very lucky to still have my arm the way the dr's were talking. I learned the seatbelts are in these things for a reason and shit happens really quick at times.
