Bright lights from screen seems to intensify my headaches.
Thanks, my friend, slow process.

Your recovery is taking too long   :deal:

Either man the fuck up, or we take you out back for a long walk off a short plank.  :sip:

Capisch?  :3some:

We miss you buddy...  ;)
Young enough to know I can, old enough to know I shouldn't, stupid enough to do it anyway.

 :lol8: Who needs enemies   :lol8:

I agree itís taking too long, so damn frustrating, my cranium is sore at the points where the pieces of my cranium adjoin.

My neck aches, crunches and cracks.

The good news is the horrible migraine headaches are becoming more rare and less intense.  This is most important for me because from what Iíve read and been told by ER docs, if Iím not back to 100 within a year of accident date, Iím likely permanently brain damaged, well....more than I already am!

Hereís the part that makes very little sense to me:  Iím 4 months post accident, the bills have been rolling in for 2 months.  My primary health insurance is saying theyíre not paying because it was a car accident while my auto insurance company says they arenít paying because the primary should pay at least a portion.

Iím stuck in the middle.  The good news is the medical providers understand how Fíd up it is so theyíve granted me extensions before turning my unpaid bills over to a collection agency.  Mind you, Iíve paid every insurance premium on time and typically paid upfront and in full, for the last 20+ years.  It seems unrealistic and unreasonable to treat a customer like this. On top of this, Iíve been informed my auto insurance company will not be renewing my policies because of 2 at fault accidents in a 2 year span, neither of which are considered at fault according to another insurance company and friends that work for the auto insurance company thatís going to cancel me.

Itís a lot to have on my mind while Iím doing everything to heal.

The colder my head is the better I feel, I may have to move to northern Ontario or Quebec!

Hope all is well with you, Mrs Z, Sam n Mags, watch out for sinkholes, I just saw the footage of a recent sinkhole that swallowed a home.

 :headbang: U Damn right bro, I'm gearing up for a snowmobile trip.  No pain.  My head feels better in cold temps. 

Gonna sleep in da back of me Toyota, get away.

Destination = Gitchee Gumee aka Lac Supťieur aka Lake Superior.

Looking forward to riding a couple old Yamaha triple 2-smoke snowmobiles I purchased recently.

No booze, no smoke, it's time to get it done.

Entry 16 - Atomic Bombs, Missiles, and Gila Cliff Mountains
Star date - 02 July 2018
Distance:  413 klicks




If you read entry 15, I visited White Sands National Monument.  Afterwards, I went back to my hotel to crash in igloo temps after my polar bear skin was beginning to melt from New Mexico summer temps. 

Heard a knock on my motel door, it was the nice old Indian gentleman and proprietor of the motel.  He asked if I had any laundry he could wash for me.  I said certainly as my riding gear was drenched with manimal perspiration.  That nice old man returned a couple hours later with all my laundry fresh n clean.  I asked him how much I owed him for his services, he answered nothing.  WHAT?  I tried to give him money, he said no.  What a wonderful world we live in, where some are willing to help without expecting anything in return.

Later on after dinner, I was bored, didn't feel like watching television, I opened my motel door and saw the old Indian sitting on his swing.  So, I strolled on over for to shoot the shyte.  Ended up talking for over an hour.  He was a sweet old man.  His son, who ran the joint and front office, as he spoke fluent English, returned from a day trip and saw his father and I sitting on the swing.  He figured his father was bothering me.  I told him not at all, we've been enjoying a nice chat, even though we couldn't understand each others words. 

The son laughed, told me thank you for listening to his father vent about his mom!!  Told me if I wanted to stay longer they'd drastically reduce the price.  So, I booked another night just to relax in my comfortable room and regroup.

It was July 2nd before I decided to leave Alamogordo towards Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, in hopes of booking a room on the river with hot natural springs.  I was making good time when I began seeing signs for White Sands Missile Range Museum.  I couldn't pass that up.

It's a military base, one has to go through extensive background checks to gain entry.  Not as easy as simply driving up to the museum.  I had to be interviewed to gain entry onto the base.  I can't believe they let an old outlaw like me in, there had to be a mistake, but I made it.

Here's what I saw in peekchas.
