What a trip!!!! Lots of national parks!!!! Lots of miles.. Lots of different weather too!!! Snowed here in Durango last night… trip has been awesome…. except for one serious STUPID moment I had last Tuesday night… Burned the holy Hell out of my hands… especially my right hand… with white gas.. burned a lot of the skin off my right hand and plenty of blisters on my left… right down to the tats. So… it was bad.. I had to hit the ER and get a shot of pain killer it was burning so bad. Anyway… I didn’t want my stupidity to ruin my Aunts road trip out west… so we kept them wrapped and pressed on!!! It would have been easy to call it off and head home.. but what was I gonna do at home??? I decided I would rather stay on the road till my hands felt better… today.. they are finally looking better!!!!!
Very disappointed in myself for doing this.. must have been my turn for another life lesson!!!!!! I’m probably gonna be outta work for a bit..JWDIIParticipantMarch 11, 2019 at 11:20 amPost count: 363

Yep, I’d say you burned it pretty good. That hurts. At least you’re not letting it ruin your trip!RustabusParticipantMarch 11, 2019 at 5:28 pmPost count: 1143

I boiled my foot one time with a steam cleaner. Was wearing my Converse back in the day. Got a little grease splatter from the truck frame I was cleaning. Thought I would clean it easy, peasy with the wand. Right when I lined up, the wand pulsed pretty hard, pushed it back where the spray went right over the canvas of the shoe. My foot was a mess for a month. Still have the scars on my toes.
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.tlambertParticipantMarch 11, 2019 at 11:45 pmPost count: 203RustabusParticipantMarch 12, 2019 at 6:42 amPost count: 1143

Yeah, saw some news video at 4:00 this morning. Slides all over Red Mountain. Closed yesterday and probably all day today as well. They plan to dynamite more potential slide areas before they send in the plow trucks to clear it.
