  • Made it as far as Utah

    I made it to Utah. A few short hours from the con. Then my life changed. The guy I was riding with rolled my Jimmy. I spent 4 days in a hospital in Price, UT, a 2 hour ambulance ride from the crash site. My truck is trashed, $19,700 damage. All windows broken, engine ground through the hood, transmission snapped in half, and rear axle snapped and off the truck.

    I walked away from this nightmare! not knowing those yet to come in my sleep.

    All my computers and such trashed, and $25,000 (thank god for insurance) in medical bills.

    Yet, I'M STILL HERE DAMNIT!

    P.S. Does anyone want to give me their badge in sympathy. I know its not as good as being there, but the only thing i have from my trip are scars, stitches, broken bones, and bills.

      You know, I thought you were going in a completely different direction until I read the next sentence... :D

      Seriously, though, that sucks. Is your insurance going to cover your computers?

              That sucks.

              That's really terrible. I hope you're doing okay, physically and otherwise. I can send you my badge. It was signed by Monsieur Mitnick, if that's alright. :)

                    That makes it less valuable.





                    Well... He was 0wn3d by HighWizard, so maybe it would make it more valuable. Then again, so was siviak.

                      Don't worry, Defcon was cancelled next year, so you don't have to worry about going at all.

                        Ok, there's something very wierd about Defcon Attendee's traveling through Utah.

                        I'm the other guy that Blackwave mentioned. Hit a deer just outside Brigham city. Total write off. While not as bad as yours, still eerily similar.

                        No spare badge, but I'll see what extra Shwag I got around.

                        No offense to anyone from Utah, but I'm going around it next year. That state is trying to kill defcon attendees

                            I personaly think its a sinister plot by Grifter and his UT2600 friends to attract more members. You folks are lucky you got out alive.

                            Seriously tho, glad both of you are OK
