This is why I haven't blogged in a while:


I borrowed a very good friend's pride and joy and did this to it. He's been very gracious, but I feel about three inches tall for letting him down. And there's a lot of fallout to deal with between the government, insurance company, recovery and repair people, etc. I'm still waiting anxiously to see what the final bill will be, and how much the insurance will cover.

The biggest lesson I've taken away from the experience: When an ambulance shows up and some bimbo with a clipboard tells you to sign a waiver refusing treatment: Don't do it.

She will:

A. Immediately release your name and address to the media along with her ambulance-bimbo interpretation of what might have happened, and,

B. Send you a bill for services you didn't need, want, request or use.

Wow - that sucks. I hope you're okay and you had no injuries.

Was wondering about that. Sorry to hear the news, but glad you weren't hurt. And, yeah, the rule is agree to and/or admitt nothing until the shock wears off.

Everything is finally sorted out now, from the NTSB investigation to the insurance settlement. It ended up costing me about what a really good night in Vegas would. Coulda been a lot worse.
