Worlds? Oh yeah I was there. Flipped Cars Flipped Cards and Steaks and Shakes Worlds Report Part 1

GAH! So how did this all happen? Well lets go to the beginning.

My sister thought it would be a great idea to take the GPS on bike rides. When doing so she can’t obviously take her bike onto the highway so she turned on Avoid Highways.So when I borrowed the GPS to help the people I was travelling with get to worlds well nobody told me to reset the settings.

So at around 4 AM on the wednesday the guys from Ottawa (Ryan *Walter Kovacs as most as you know him* and Matt) come and grab me. It was my idea to drive overnight so we could reach the Golden Age tourney thursday and avoid the midday US traffic. So since we all knew how to get to the border we didn’t turn on the GPS until we crossed the border. That was when things started going downhill.

Signs that the GPS MAY be giving you the bad directions:

  1. Within seconds of turning on it tells you to IMMEDIATELY exit the highway
  2. After a 30 minute detour through a town that had one store(can’t remme the name) thats more common than Tim Hortons is here we finally get back onto a highway of which it tells us to get off the highway go through a rest stop and then get back onto the highway.
  3. when it gets so confused it starts sending you to closed roads
  4. And offroad.
  5. Oh and there was also a person with a sack on his head walking a dog. Right when I was talking about the chainsaw dude from resident evil 4. This was about 5 mins before we crashed.

It was at that point we decided to ignore the GPS and head straight to the highway.But the weather and bad roads decided that was not the case. We swurved and well see picture above. We came to (not knocked out but disoriented nevertheless). Ryan felt a strange sensation on his head thinking it might have been glass from the windshield that he more or less is on top of. He sniffs but instead of the smell of blood he smells all dressed. The glass is untouched. We all slowly unbuckle ourseatbelts and kind of crawl out of the car .(after Ryan put the car in park so we could unlock the doors) Nobody was hurt and nothing other than the car and ruffles were ruined.

People come out to see if we were okay and tell us that more than 12 people flipped on these roads in the past year. Also they told us that we are 1/10 of a mile away from the highway route. The car is towed slowly after. (And I mean slowly took about a hour for anything to happen) We get driven to Frank and Son’s in West Henrietta PA and try to figure out what to do next.

We attempt to call a taxi of some sort to get us to a car rental place (cause car rental places wouldn’t come to us) I was actually half planning on going home at that point. But to no avail it seemed as if we would have to stay the night and miss worlds in rural Pennsylvania.

TO BE CONTINUED……

    Again, why did you not bother to check the GPS before hand? I still can’t believe you kept going after it told you to get off the highway.
