    I hope lots of people make it out to the Benefit Show! I'm looking forward to getting Dan out of the house and he is really excited to see everyone!

    Is it too early to ask how Gundy Insurance is treating you?

    The first thing that crossed my mind is that someone capable of building something so beautiful could not possibly be idiotic enough to drink and then drive it. Dave, I'm sorry about your car. Dan, I'm sorry about your situation. I will make a donation as soon as I can spare some funds. In the meantime, get-better-juju is free, and I'm sending it your way!

    Man. I hope they are doing ok. I smashed my 30 a few months ago, but not that bad. Prayers for them.

    Hello everyone. I'm Ren a.k.a Dan Habershaw. I want to thank everyone for all the support. The accident was a major event in my life but the support my wife and I have received following that day is beyond belief. As you know I broke both my feet my pelvis has multiple breaks with a foot long bolt holding it together. I broke my tailbone and my L2 vertebra. All my stitches are now out and mostly healed. I graduated from "can't move" to wheel chair to walker and now I'm sporting a cane and I haven't even hit the two month mark. I am way ahead of all my doctors expectations and I blame that on the support I get from my friends and the love from my wife Jen. So many people went out of their way to check on me at the hospital and then at my house, it was awesome. Both the benefits were successful and I also want to thank those who made paypal donations. Its cool to know when one of us goes down, the rest are ready to pick up. Thanks again, really there is nothing I can say that properly expresses my gratitude. Because of you guys I don't have to worry about loosing my house or bills piling up and I can say I'll see you at the Masterson/Barris Fire and the Mooneyes Christmas party. THANKS AGAIN. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

    God, I just did a search for swivel seats and found this! Changed my mind on swivels. I hope both guys pull through ok. I have been in their place years ago and it was not fun. But I can say all the love here will be well received. Good luck.

    If you look at pics of old wrecks you kinda realize how much safer cars are now. And thank God (or the guvmint) the trailer had the crash bars on it which prevents cars from going underneath the trailers. We all remember the days before they became required, ...35 years ago, 5 Maine highschool kids were killed at once from massive head injuries when coming back from a concert and ran under the rear of a trailer.

    I had a wreck and "ate" the steering wheel, looking at the bullet on that steering wheel made my nut sac wrinkle, I hope all heal well and everything else goes as it should and no BS from idiots, insurance companies or legal people.

    Wow....this is terrible (OBVIOUSLY). I'm in awe and shock. Very sorry this event took place. This tragedy reminds me of the Dream Truck when it rolled off the flatbed, only no one was injured in that case. I certainly hope everyone turns out alright after this incident!!
