Dr_Crash Posted April 25, 2005 Share Posted April 25, 2005 My helmet today took the blow for me as a coffee table sized chunk of a bigger block went straight down on me and hit my head, then kept on damaging most of my right side, from shoulder to ankle (various scrapes, a nice deep gash, bruises and other fun things). My buddy who got some of the other part of the block on is head (and on his leg, making a big gash down to the bone, ouch!---I feel lucky having escaped stitches) may also need to say thanks to his helmet. The helmet, a BD half dome, is now retired. The foam is nicely cracked inside. Helmets when rock falls on you. Let's see: 30 stitches in the head while skiing 2 years ago (earning my nickname), a car accident in November, rock on my head today... Maybe time to get a nickname that does not tempt fate as much? drC Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
