Pictures from an accident a few years ago

Hey ya'll I used to be a member quite some time ago -- but things got busy and I traded my truck (which I am still super sad about ).. Anyway - My name is Leann.. and I was wondering if anyone had pictures from an accident that me and Gearhead61 (Kyle) got into about 4 years ago.. I know it's an odd request.. but I was talking about it the other day... and I realized - I don't have any pictures from the event and I would like to be able to have that memory as it is starting to fade.. and yes I know - it's an odd memory to want to have but.. aside from that being one of the worst days of my life - it was as an amazing one too -- amazing that neither one of us got severly hurt and we walked away with a few cuts and bruises..

anyway -- I was able to find the thread but there were only a couple of pictures.. I think Christian took a bunch.. so if anyone could be of any help - I would appreciate it...

I'm doing ok.. my back is good. I've been having issues with my jaw -- kinda like TMJ for the past year to year and a half - I don't know if I tweaked it then or if it's something stress related. Thank you for asking..

Here are the pics I have..

yea we were driving down the shoreline - whatever you want to call it (i had just barely put my seat belt on like 5 or so before it happened) and he said he was doing about 25-30 and he wasn't paying attention and he hit a divot or something in the sand and he over corrected and it sent us doing donuts - then the pass side front tire lost bead or bit sand and it sent us rolling 3 times -- I remember seeing water splashing across the front windshield and hitting my side hard (I think thats when I hit my head) then I remember opening my eyes as we landed right side up and looking at kyle like WTF!!! and we made sure we were ok -- and he helped me climb out of the truck and he said my head was bleeding.. (those are the only other ones I have.)

<<deleted pics>>

we were flipping right in front of this couple and their 2 yr old - who called 911. We were veery lucky - it could have been way worse.. we must have had some serious angels watching over us..

haha -- well with the rising gas prices (not to mention the repairs needed on the truck) - It was the best thing to do. My bf had installed remote start w alarm, new front and rear speakers.. and a radio I think.. he was super pissed when I traded it before he could take it out.. (i pulled the "im a girl and didn't even think about that" card... i felt sooo bad! I do miss my ranger.. we liked taking it to the beach and stuff.. (i really miss hoppin curbs when there aaaalmost wasnt enough room for me to fit around a car though)

I like my car - already threw in a new radio (xmas present) - going to be adding some speakers soon and i am in desperate need of new rims.. these hubs just aren't doin it for me..
