    Now that the adrenaline has died down I'm starting to feel all the bumps and bruises. I cut my hands up some crawling out.

    Guy was flying, weaving in and out of traffic and clipped us as we were turning.

    It was surreal, it was my first time in a roll over.

    I was told that in certain accidents in Saudi Arabia, both parties automatically go to jail. Military guy told me this. What was the outcome? Glad youre ok.

    We had witnesses saying it wasn't our fault.

    Also name status means a lot over here and the Mayors brother and nephew work for the company. They came out to pick us up and name dropped some.

    Is the other guy had been hurt or killed then it would have been....interesting.

    In an accident with injuries the foreigner is always at fault because if he hadn't been there, it wouldn't have happened. :dunno:

    We got lucky.

    At the tournament I was telling one of the guys I was coaching who was losing 20 points to 0 to "c'mon man never back down" and "use your jiutjisu!"


    he wasn't happy.


    When he was down 25-0 the guy he was up againsts coach said "DONT DO ANYTHING CRAZY" while he was mounted on my buddy.. my buddy said "Oh dude I dare you to do something crazy, do it!"

    Everyone laughed.. and then we left the tournament after he lost

    no, the only thing that stuck in my mind was to not let my glasses get crushed. Why I was worried about my glasses I don't know...thats just what my mind stuck on.

    When you are upside down and you unlatch your seat belt...there just isn't a graceful way to fall. All up in the glass too.

    So after my fun morning I get a ride 3 hours north to Yanbu. The smoothest highway you've ever seen and no speed limit.

    Turns out a 2002 Camary 4 cylinder will do 170 KPH flat out.

    And this is all you see, with the random group of camels. I couldn't get any of the camels though :(

    But then we stopped at the "rest stop" to get something to drink.

    This guy is a bedowin and lives in this thing in the middle of the desert( you randomly see shacks out in the sand, people still live out there like back in the day). he had a small generator he used to keep the drinks cold. I wish I could have gotten a picture further away so you could see just how remote this thing was. Just it and some sand.

    I can't believe civilization started here.

    There is NOTHING. Very few trees, no grass, no water. Its crazy.
