I swerved to miss a deer the friday before last and ran off the road and wrecked my car. I'm too upset to think about it still. May get another may not. I had just got it back from the body shop. People say that I should've hit the deer. But that was the last thing I was thinking when I came around this corner and came upon this big buck. The xB tried to stay on the road. The right wheels were on a narrow gravel shoulder... It tried for about 50 yards... then It went down an embankment spun around and came to rest buried in blackberry bushes 8 feet deep. I got cut to s**t climbing out and up to the roadway(I was wearing shorts). Peace my friends. I may or may not be around. Carl, I'll e-mail you. I love that car. My kids called it "Princess" because it was so well taken care of.
Dave:(

Your box did the best it could to protect you. It tried.

Sad to hear it was totaled.

Take care,
Tomas

It's gone. I had to have a tow truck follow me out there. It took him almost 2 hours to get it up the to the road. At one point he called for back up. At one point as it was being pulled it was submarining under the blackberries. The dude said the he preferred the snow of South Dakota to Oregon blackberries.
The structural stability of the passenger compartment was excellent. I didn't sustain any injuries due to the wreck. I sprained my ankle real bad walking iin and around on top of this sea of blackberries. And sustained innumerable cuts due to the BBerries. The car held up great.

I'm glad you're okay, Dave (minus the cuts, bruises, and sprained ankle), and happy to hear your xB went down fighting.

Don't know what the future holds for ya, but concentrate on healing up right now. And do keep us posted.

Damn, that really sucks! I am so sorry to hear your car didn't do so good, but I'm glad you're all right. That's the most important thing. You must be pretty heartbroken though.

Sorry to hear the Box is gone but glad you're not seriously hurt. I'm going on a blackberry boycott in protest of what happen to your Box. ( i really don't like blackberries anyway) Get better soon!


Maybe when your feeling better you can post a pictorial tribute to your beloved Box.

Sounds like you need another box to me. Glad that you're ok, you definitely did the right thing avoiding a big buck.

Look at it as an opportunity to get one of the last ones made!
