Seems like a little orange paint or a flag might have been nice...... I'll bet he needed a change of uniform after that sudden stop.

Sort of lucky that had a wood axle. If that had been a good lump of nicely welded steel that would have been an even more sudden stop Ouch!

Waiting to try out my landyachts on the ice, however it might have to warm up a bit:

Yeah, Well! What can I say Brian, what can I say??? This doesn't bode well for you at all[}:)] What ever happened to common sense??? You could always move down to "The Great Down Under" where good Dentists can make a living and ones Eyes can Fry in their sockets. Not to mention the great tracts of Salt Flats and Clay Pans to operate ones Land Yachts..
