I’m back! It’s been a while since my last blog post. As most of you know there was a little bit of a halcyon horror on Kauai. For some reason I thought cruising across a plantation on an ATV without ever haven ridden one was a good idea, turned out that I was mistaken. The chain of events went something like this:
Get on ATV and ride across plantation with other tourists ( I was the only one who was an ATV virgin)
Lose control of ATV and drive it up onto a bank where it flipped over on me
Break wrist in several places, crack ribs, get bloody and battered–not a good plan
Go to hospital on Kauai and get patched up(ish) and suitable for transport to the mainland.
Take lots of drugs and fly back to NYC
See doctor on Monday morning and get carted off to surgery 3 hours later
Recover in various locations in New York and New Jersey
Pull it together, get sign off from Doc and fly back to LA
Met at airport by my Rescue Team (Thank you Eileen and Lewis)
Get in car after paying enormous parking bill, have glamorous LA dinner followed by breakfast at the Peninsula Hotel (where we had the privilege of listening to Harvey Weinstein scream at someone on his cell phone).
Get back in car and drive East, which I’ve been doing for the past two weeks now.
So in-between the Olympic Peninsula, which was my last post there were a lot of awesome other sights in-between. Why don’t we call this the “mash up” or “catch up post” “highlights of the last 7 weeks post”? OK, cut me some slack I’m a little worse for wear at the moment, but most definitely on the mend
Let’s go to the video tape (or the pictures) I’m posting them in order of when I visited these places.
Before The ATV Incident There Were SO Many Awesome Kauai Moments
And then the fun literally came to a crashing halt
So after being treated at the local hospital, I flew home the following day. The next post will cover my triumphant return to the road on November 5th and the fantastic places I’ve visited as I zoom ever eastward
OMG, what a ride…but you are one brave explorer. I’ve enjoyed your descriptions and musings so much, keep on writing!
I’m so glad you’re ok… and that you keep on, keepin’ on. You’re unstoppable! 🙂
