WHOA!!!

There goes my Slim Fast Bar and Budwieser breakfast. How did that happen and why did it get so nasty?

My sympathy to the owner, hope everything is ok in the end.

Who did this terrible thing to you?

Seriously, I'm taking J to the hospital (behind my house, coincidentally) to let the doc have one last look at it and to set up the appointment to get'er whacked off. I offered to do it for cheap but he refused. At least he'll be close by when he goes under the knife. Maybe I can sneak some MX videos over to him whilst he's convalescing.

Whoa, that looks fairly ordinary! Having a big toe amputated can cause some pretty serious balance issues, any chance it can be "patched up" ?

Had to trim this down to get it to fit. Here is the fastest woods guy I know in all of his glory, on an MX TRACK!!:eek:

We need ya to heal up quick so you can go back to "takin' us to school" every time we ride!

Gotta love that pic, and just think I can see it close up any time I wanna!! Lou and I are heading to the orthopedic doc today but I am hoping he stays with the conservative attitude he has displayed up to this point..now almost 4weeks to the day of the crash. The doc has discussed taking me under the knife to remove the black areas(dead tissue) and see if any good tissue still remains underneath. The issue of total removal has been covered also but that would happen if infection were to set in...so far it hasn't because I have been taking almost straight peneciline(spelling?). We shall see..the bones are healing great it is just the skin that is the biggest worry. Either way I look forward to being back on the bike and riding w/my buds. Take care to all and enjoy the gross photos!!;)

Blue Thunder,

Hopefully you're able to fully recover. Damn that's a gross picture. The toe not the kick a** jump. That looks like a fun track. I'm originally from Missouri. A little town near Columbia called Glasgow. What a great place to ride. Not as many places like that out here in California.

Anyway just wanted to say hello to a fellow Missourian and send a get well soon.

Blue Thunder, that is total sickness, I've seen enough to know how glad I am that it is not attached to me!!!:scream: :scream:

Cool pic, had I seen that straight after a big meal and not at midnight my reaction may have been completely different.

Good luck with the healing process, and have a look around for steel cap MX boots :cool:

Thanks to all...I know its gross, my wife is very squemish and cannot even look at it, all the while my 2yr old daughter wants to give it a healing kiss every time I change the bandages! Too funny.
Hey Aust, regarding the steel plate..I emailed Alpinestars boots regarding building an offroader specific boot that was lined on the top side w/a steel plate to remove some of the danger of a pinch situation so many of us encounter in the woods/rocks/desert. Something like a construction boot steel toe, then just bring the steel up to the pivot point covering the top of the foot. Just a thought and I have not received a response from them yet. I know w/o my boots I would have lost my whole foot, so I am thankful for the protection they provided!! BTW..go ahead Okie..have a look!! :eek:

If you do lose it, send it to DW 01 with BigLou. His team can hand it off during the Tag Team MX.

Get it? HAND it off?
