From Mike himself–

so after a beautiful week in cape cod and two fab days
in maine, ( or as kerouac said, celebrating october in
the railroad earth) em, I and my cousin Chris and her
husband were rearended by a fully loaded logging
truck going 40 miles and hour and propelled into
oncoming traffic for another head on collison…miraculously,
only real bad bangs and bruises and rib
sprains for em, chris and carlos, and a slightly
fractured femur collar for yours truly resulted. the
highlander looks like a volkswagon now, but the damn
thing held up.
