February 19th, 1986
If I can keep one person to make the same mistake we made on that day, I'll be happy
Let's see what was going on:

Scrapbook Scrapbook
Left: Greg and Ken - Right: Matt, Doug, Greg and Ken
We were playing Mexican Dice with Beer
We had a lot of fun

Scrapbook Scrapbook
A little while later, Greg is passed out and as you can see below, I had some fun with him

Scrapbook
Now comes the educational part
If you have been drinking --- do NOT drive!!!
Doug had asked me to drive to get more beer and I told him I couldn't cause I was drunk
So, he drove and stupid me, took my little David and went with him
Greg, Ken and Matt came too. I sat in back with Greg and Ken and David was on our labs
As Doug was heading into town I was telling him to slow down
He said "I can go 50, or 60, maybe even 70
And BAM we hit the wall

Scrapbook Scrapbook
Looking at the car, we were lucky we all survived!
Matt needed stitches on his leg and had a broken wrist
Greg had glass in his eyes and I got the wind knocked out of me
David threw up..possibly due to the stress the accident caused
Doug broke his shoulder. Like I said.... we were lucky!
The police didn't even test him. HE was lucky!
The paper article above states that the accident occured probably due to going to fast
DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!!!
