Thanks for posting the link. I disabled comments for this video as it was escalating and I'm not interested in providing a commentary on everything at this point. It is what it is and I'll let the police finalize their report before I speculate on anything.

I'm just glad I did not step on any toes by posting it. Glad you are ok. Maybe the broken nose will add more character?

Saw it on FB, too bad you didn't disable comments there. Some folks opinions amaze me. :bs: Glad you had cameras going, should help police in their report. Hope you heal fast and damage minimal to rig.

Trying to be proactive I checked with my insurance, American Modern. No problems other than if I need them they will require a dealer estimate on the rig. No report yet, the officer has been off duty and there was this small wind storm that came through. So I still have no idea if they had insurance. If they do, I bet they want the same thing, get it to a dealer.

I may end up having to load it up and haul it to Gene.

Out where there wasn't service for a few days. Glad you're OK. My wife has a kind of funny looking photo of me and my butterfly black eyes from my last broken nose. About the only thing funny about the entire experience.

On that rocker cover looks like the center stud has bent backwards. Either the other two locating pegs are sheared off of they've torn thru the rocker cover alloy - just guessing tho...

Wasn't a hit and run. He stayed. But while I was there could not provide proof of insurance and the police could find none either. Cop was very professional and was giving them an opportunity to call and try and produce it. I wont know until they contact me which may be a few days.

Right now there are more urgent concerns with the storm coming in. Power has gone off/on a few times and I hope that's all we see. It is supposed to peak here in the next few hours. So far, rain and wind maybe up to 20MPH with a few gusts.

Glad you are relatively OK.

I'll withhold questions for now.

Robert, we are not the youngest any more. Do yourself a favour and ask for some embolia prophylaxis from your doc...I lost Grandma and one of my best buddies due to a blood plug getting loose and obstructing the arteries right 3 days after a not so/small accident.
And why not, get some surplus care from your wife..."Oh dear, I feel so bad" :wink:

By the way the place where you got stuck a few days ago seems to have got "watered A BIT". Now the ground should be harder- :foilhead:

I would like to thank everyone for their concern and I appreciate the comments, I really do. I am following the Doc's advice with everything. Still waiting on the police report before I can proceed with any repairs on the rig. However it plays out, I think they are going to want a repair quote from a dealer.

On a less positive note, I will say that I find the hate mail saddening, really sad. I mean, I knew the world was a cesspool of degenerates but come on, seriously? I've been told several things, blamed for the whole thing, told I should be buying them a new car... but I think the most disturbing is being told "too bad you didn't die you white ... piece of ... " ?? Seriously. The anonymity of the internet really brings out the worst in some people. It really doesn't bother me, it just makes me sad that all these pieces of trash exist out there.
