    Default Les Stroud injured in Vehicle Accident

    Nothing life threatening it appears, but there is no such thing as "flat terrain" off road at night IMO. Always a few washes or ditches etc.



    I did some minor damage to the under carriage of my Toyota 4runner a few years ago at night when I really did not need to be driving around. I knew there was a ditch in that general area and should have just waited until sun up to move my vehicle to a better location closer to my campsite at a WMA. Same thing for hog hunting, fun to do it from a pickup truck but an ATV at lower speeds is often safer, or by foot at night.

    Might drive right into the footprint of a "Bigfoot".

    This year seems to be a tough one for him and his family. I hope he gets better soon.

    I wonder if this trip was about a real survival show or if he was chasing Big Foot at 50mph?

    Broken, bruised or torn ribs all hurt like hell, take forever to heal and Mr. Murphy almost guarantees you will get a cold or something that causes you to sneeze non-stop! No fun at all!

    You can follow him on his facebook page.

    Apparently he is doing well and running around Europe playing the harmonica.
