    New official slogan: Freaking nuts and in way over our heads.

    Allow me to reiterate:

    REGISTRATION CLOSES MAY 12. DON'T SHOW UP AT BYRD'S EXPECTING ACCOMMODATIONS IF YOU DIDN'T PRE-REGISTER.

    So, have you NWA FFs pre-rode anything?
    How is Mulberry at Catulpa? Fordable?

    Also, we are considering Frog Bayou Reunion Ride. It should be interesting with all the recent weather :)

    Scribe, u got a new bike yet?

    1) Pre-riding is for pussies
    2) Anything is fordable with the right attitude
    3) I have a classic KTM that is a classic

    Since we are posting videos, here is at least 4 things you shouldn't do in this situation. the first one to guess all 4 wins a beer with me at our camp next weekend. yes you read that right one beer. must be present to win. I wont bring it to you.

    Ok I'll take a guess because you know, beer. Don't take a pic first (although that was awesome), don't yank it out without counting to three, add some sort of tourniquet so he doesn't stain the bike, don't keep trying to pass him...let him at least win.

    I'll bite.
    1) Don't yank it not knowing how deep it is.
    2) Don't let the rider push on knowing how deep it was, because shock.
    3)Don't let it go untreated pack it with gauze.
    4) Don't try to give him Tylenol? Because it will compound with the other drugs or some medical reason.

    Also, isn't tylenol a blood thinner? That seems like a poor choice here, also IIRC he had damage to an artery so he basically was incredibly lucky he didn't bleed out.

    RV update:
    I counted 17 requests and we have 25 spaces set aside, so you RV types should be G2G. Please note that SLAP does not assign spaces. Byrd's does that when you arrive.

    1) Don't watch this video
    2) Don't ride with sharpened bloody sticks you just pulled out of your buddy's leg
    3) Don't hit sharp sticks with your leg
    4) See No. 1

    TxFarmer is pretty much right on track.
    1. don't pull it out. in fact don't pull anything out you suspect is in deep. A tourniquet is a good idea if you have one or can make one, but even still don't pull it out. if you use a tourniquet, it has to loosened every 15 min or so, then back tight. don't just crank it down and leave it.
    2. don't take the boot off., or anything else for that matter. the boot being tight is probably what saved him. if you decide to take the boot off and apply gauze ( bad idea) don't take it off when it is saturated , just add more, and more if need be.
    3. don't let them ride back to camp. hes was in shock, and when the adrenaline wears off, he can pass out or have a mild seizure. At least don't make him kick start the bike with his bad leg. kick starting with the injured leg could have loosened what ever plug was keeping him from bleeding out.
    4. don't ride back to camp holding a bloody stick on the handle bar of your bike. Its basically like running with scissors, except faster, and the scissors have blood on them.
    as for the tylenol, it is a blood thinner which would have made thins worse, and probably not lessened the pain.
