Spent the day knocking down large trees at a friend's upstate property. Left exhausted and late for a party a few towns over, so heavy foot along a gravel mountain road. Hit a loose patch of gravel and started to fishtail at speed. Foot off brake and gas as I tried to compensate. Oversteered and fishtailed the other direction. Am now swerving downhill and picking up speed. Tried to steer out once more, but the truck wasn't having it and the rear end broke through the fishtail. I'm in a full spin thinking I'm going to roll. Complete revolution and then past to smash the read end into an embankment. Six feet that way and I would have wrapped around a tree; six feet the other way and I would have flipped into a ditch. Drove out and made the party.
Had a cousin who wrapped around a pole and became a quadriplegic. Happy to be writing this.
