GTO Wrecked

Raining, lost traction, and ended up in a ditch yesterday morning.

The back end started sliding out from under me when going around a curve (clockwise/right). I turned the steering wheel too sharply to the left sending my car in the other direction and going sideways across both lanes. Panicked and hit the gas (400 hp car and hitting the gas is like an insta 20 mph jump).

The next thing I knew I was in the ditch. I didn't remember going into it, I think I felt it happen. Didn't remember going past the trees or turning the car off. I was fortunate that there was no oncoming traffic, that I missed the trees, that the fence wasn't electric, and that the taunt fence wire along the top didn't slice my car, and me, in half like a hot knife through butter. So, I thanked God about a dozen times.

And I want to say thanks to all of my friends as well, for the phone calls and talks. Im very fortunate to know every single one of you.
