It was a Blast had a little truck Carnage and one human severed finger tip Mel Let me know how she is doing. Jason dented his new Door but it is a poorboy truck and he said the dent will stay. Jason and Pat had to check the under side of their tires in the washout ,see Pic's below.

Unfortunately they were not able to save the top of her finger ...... but she did keep it...LOL she’s in great spirits and doing a lot better. When all was said and done they had to cut the top part of the bone off and left the wound open so it can begin to regenerate new skin. She has some cuticle left....so she can possibly grow a nail back. They sent her home wrapped up with gauze on the top of her hand the size of a softball......so everyday chores will not be easy....so, being that I drive by her house on the way home.....for the rest of the week while she has a boxing glove prohibiting her...... I will be going over and making dinner for her and the lil ones and helping her around the house....it’s the least i could do.....I feel EXTREMLEY HORRIBLE!!!! She was so impressed that all the poorboy’s came as soon as they heard. We knew that Kev thought it was me when the young man came back and told us that they told "Marci's" husband and that he was on his way....... she couldn't believe everyone stopped what they were doing and came to help......she said she understood now why I speak so highly of everyone in our group..... She was also very appreciative to all who helped and can't wait to get to know everyone in the future!!! I too want to thank everyone as well and a big thanks to Brenner for airing up my tires so we could get going a lil quicker!!!!
Okay WillyNilly....... The Finger story.......for you!!!
Let me start by saying.... I have seen smashed, black and blue nail spliting fingers after being slammed in the door....but I never thought it would take part of a finger off!!! We actually went to the parking lot to make room for brown to ride with us... When I closed the hatchback of the pathfinder the camping chair was a lil longer so when I shut the hatchback it only partly closed but it was jammed and wouldn't allow me to open the door. So Marci....popped the hatchback window from the front. I reached in, got the chair out then checked the latch and it was unstuck......so the hatchback was only open a couple of inches for a quick moment...while I pulled the chair out and quickly shut the door....well I guess she went in to help me with the blanket and had put her fingers into the small gap to help....I had no idea.....I slammed the door shut and there went the tip of her ring finger on her left hand....... It didn't really sink in until I seen the mutilated meat and bone sticking out of the nub then I looked down to see her finger tip with her acrylic nail fully intact with no crack or breaks...... ..... From there we went to the hospital only to wait for 2 hours for the surgeon to make his way back from Portland....... It was freaky....not to mention extremely gross.....but it could've been a lot worse... I'm just glad she’s okay and we had good friend around to help!!!!
