    Default It's catching!

    Well everone's takin' the mick out of poor old Dunc, I've suffered the same fate today.
    Attending an emergency response, came across a stretch of road which had been resurfaced. Council had decided that a 2 inch depth of loose chippings was about right.

    Needless to say had a major collision with another car. No major injuries, but I ended up in a field and came to in the passenger seat.

    Can't say much more for obvious reasons.

    I'm pretty stiff and extremely bruised, but still hoping to get to Billing. Fingers crossed.

    Blimey Paul, hope there's no serious injuries. As stated many times before the cars are just lumps of metal that can be replaced.

    ouch, a polac, must have been fairly hard bang to knock you unconscious (sp?). Hope the bruising goes down soon, imagine it would take a couple of weeks. But one thing on your side is that your an advanced driver so you treated the collision with your training.

    Hope your feeling better soon and able to attend billing, am looking forward to meeting you.

    Blimey Paul, hope you're okay. At least I avoided a head-on with my oncoming transit van and only clipped the Porsche. Getting knocked out (even for a short while) is not good.

    Hope your bruising and stiffness is only that, and nothing more serious. Do hope you can make it to Billing m8.

    Glad yer alright Paul, gotta add this though, my cousin trains police drivers in Yeovil, I've seen a BMW in a shop window, numerous other little altercations over the yrs, had a *when I was young and reckless* pursuit with a Volvo, in my 2.8i, which I had 3 tyres on at the time, and one flat, negotiated a tight corner and a dogleg without any collision, while under the influence, and only got nabbed bailing out at home, not to wish to undermine the Police, but I watch the tv, and I know if I was recruited, all the Scooby theft in Manchester would come to a hault, granted i'm not as fast these days, but i still know how and where to remove a car from the track, perhaps you should have a word with someone, offer me £800 pw and I could come in and halt car theft overnight, and yes, I really am that good.

    Cheers all. Still hoping to be at Billing, just hoping the stiffness will have disappeared by then. It was more a case of being a little dazed than knocked out, but unpleasent none the less.
