New Snowmachine and 5 hrs in the ER

I don't know if I ever told you all that we had gotten a new snowmachine this past summer. Eric has been putting the miles on - about 800 to be exact! This past weekend he apparently decided that it was still too new. He did a little "cosmetic" surgery on it Tundra Style.

This picture shows the debris trail really well. Eric said it was approximately 80 feet.

Here's a closer look. The hood is flipped forward and there is no windshield. To make a long story short, he was on a trail that was pretty icy and bumpy. He looked back to check on the sled and his ski must have caught something and sent the machine rolling.

We spent the afternoon in the ER to get him checked out to make sure there was nothing wrong - possible mild concussion but nothing else. CT scan was clear and there were no broken bones. We were there for 5 hours just to keep him under observation and to get the CT results back. The CT was done and the scan was emailed to Anchorage to be read. Crazy!

Eric is one damn lucky man. Glad he is ok.
