Never A Dull Moment On This Adventure – October 30 2012

Up at o’dark thirty to travel to Twin Falls, Idaho for my first dose of carfilzomid. Driving in the dark in Bart (2006 Honda Pilot) with my good friend Shirley Olsen who came along to help me if needed. Just 5 miles from the entrance to the Craters of the Moon National Park, out of the dark came a deer and which I hit and killed instantly. The radiator on the car was steaming and I could not open the driver’s side door. The front end and hood don’t look that damaged, but there are – hopefully there is not a lot of damage to the engine beyond the radiator.
I called Jamie Hjelm at Lost River Auto Body back in Arco and he said he’d be right out with the only tow truck in Butte County. It helps that I know him and have done business with him before. Although, this was my first deer hit EVER. Meanwhile, Shirley called her husband, Wayne, and our good friend Lesley Szabo to ask them to go to my house and get my other car, Jonah (1999 Honda Passport) and bring it to Jamie’s shop about 5 miles north of Arco.
