some stupid guy in a dodge (full size) changed his plans from park into rev. and wothout any care at all he says that he hit the gas instead of the break and smashed into my shoulder, made me go flying a good 3-4 feet in the air and landed on some nice guy on the side. He really shouldnt be driving he has his foot all wraped up and he told me he screwed ... boy did he ever


thanks again to the guy that i landed on...if anybody knows this guy let him know .......THANX

This is pretty typical of one of the reasons I avoid the Stave Lake mud flats. It's a gong show with lots of pinheads goofing around there. It's no wonder that that sort of accident doesn't happen more often. Oops...I mean, it's a wonder that that sort of thing doesn't happen more often.

Lars, it does happen more often. Just read the posts from the spring. Some guy got killed, another lost a leg...
And then there is the stuff we do not hear about.

Sorry to hear about the accident Vibe

I hope you get better quickly, and this experience doesn't sour you against Stave too much. It's too bad people have to get drunk and do stupid things.

I didn't know how much bad stuff hapens out there. Just shows how stupid people can be with alcohol and driving.


Well.... It's good to know that you are mostly OK Vibe.

Man, I'm starting to feel like an old fart lecturing to the younger whipper-snappers. The more alert among you will read this as a warning that I'm about to go on another rant. And of course, you'd be right. ;-)

I've spent enough of my own mis-guided youth drinking and partying and playing with 4x4s to realize that we ALL contribute to the gong-show atmosphere of the mud flats simply by being there and spectating. There's a distinct correlation between the number of stupid stunts performed and the number of hollering and hooting spectators present to watch that stupid stunt being performed. If you think it's a shame that the experience is ruined by drunken idiots, the practical solution would be to stay away from the area.

Why is it practical?

For starters, it is VERY difficult to change someone else's behaviour but you can definitely change your own. Secondly, by reducing the number of spectators, you are reducing the peer pressure and party atmosphere which, one would hope, cut down on the stupidity and drinking.

So why don't you make a positive effort and simply avoid the mud flats.

---

I guess the other side of the coin is that maybe it's a good thing for the drunks to stay in that one area and leave the REAL trails to the responsible fourwheelers? Actually, I'd have no problem with that except that I know we will all get suffer from the increasing bad reputation these morons will give fourwheelers as the injuries, deaths, and stories of stupidity grow.

It's human nature. We like to slow down and look at the grizzly accident on the highway, we like to jeer at the idiot getting pulled over by the cops, we like to bet people 5 dollars they won't jump off their second floor patio.. We also like to watch people do stupid things to their trucks (resulting in "carnage"). Stave is most definetly an excellent area to observe the shade tree molson monkey in it's natural habitat.

The dog is for some reason Ok. I can't believe he survived his head was touching the back of his tail as if his spine snapped. On the drive back to Newton Animal Hospital he slowly started moving his head and feet and straightened himself out. It wasn't the bikers fault the dog is trained to stop people from stealing motorcycles from my shop in Whiterock. The bike sounded just like mine. I don't want to see this as a negative impact on the Stave area, to many places are getting shut down.thanks for the concern about my dog and no hard feelings, accidents happen.
