Pics of the whelps, or it didn’t happen🤪
Benadryl spray and an oral pill plus hours since it happened have reduced all the swelling. All the hit spots still are sensitive to the touch though. My right hand swelled up the most as it got hit twice in a small area. I didn’t take any pics of the welts.

Glad you are doing better!

After working a 12 hour midnight shift, I started the day with a 9am appointment with a dermatology doctor to remove a squamous cell carcinoma from my shifting arm. I got home finally about 10:30am after being awake for 28.5 hours. Tonight I handed out 9/11 memorial ribbons to my crew that our company provided.

That’s a long ass time to be awake! I hope the recovery goes smoothly Mike.

Yes it is. I usually get a little nap before the first midnight, but I've been laying tile on my front and side porches. 12 hour shifts with a 1 hour commute each way makes it a long day. Thanks on the recovery. I'm paying now for not using much or any sunscreen for years.

First time going COMPLETELY off track (all 4 wheels). The car survived. About to get back in the fight for round two! 👊

Round two complete. Stayed on the track this round. Feeling more comfortable on the 1/2 that I’ve never driven on before... speeds are increasing. Gas consumption is increasing. Fun is increasing!

Did four sessions. Drove the car the hardest to date... gave it everything it had and was often on the border between in and out of control. I completely went off track 3 times. The day was totally EPIC! 🤟

Sand burs in the tires (and splitter).

Success! Made it home... exhausted! 🤟 😴

I will eventually clean and “de-grass” the Shelby.

I rode the Harley 440 miles today in the Texas Hill Country, even rode one of the Three Sisters ;)

There happened to be a Porsche club out running them today. Wish I had the Shelby, some of those pompous Porsche owners could use a lesson.

In case some don't get my humor. The three "Twisted" Sisters are 3 Ranch roads 335,336,337, that are famous canyon carving, twisty roads of pure adrenalin. Motorcycles and cars come from all over to travel these roads. If you have ever been on or heard of the 'Tail of the Dragon", well this is the stretched out version lasting many more miles(100 Miles)
