2008-11-9 Lucky To Be Alive

Eric and I were attempting to hike Baldy, San Jacinto and San Gorgonio in under 24 hours.  We started with climbing Baldy.  With a lack of sleep and poor judgement, we headed to San Jacinto.  Eric fell asleep at the wheel going 55 miles per hour, we flipped three times over the median and landed into oncoming traffic.  Eric fractured his neck (non displaced) and I walked away without a scratch.  We were lucky.

The Aftermath

We almost died that day.  There are some days when I just pause...look around and think how lucky I am to be alive.  

Live with no excuses and chase your passions with no regrets
