Left home for Mayo Clinic at 1:30 A.M. and two hours into the trip ended up smacking into what looked like a very large 8-10 point buck. Snowstorm and no way to stop on ice in the dark. I am guessing 2300 bucks of damage-whole front bumper and assembly. No metal or paint damage though. Could have been a lot worse and the RAV4 was driveable. I have lived here near eight years and have had plenty of close calls, so my time was up. Waiting for the EMG at this moment. Have a good day.
"And I count myself more fortunate with each passing season to have recourse to these quiet, tree-strewn, untrimmed acres by the water. I would think it a sad commentary on the quality of American life if, with our pecuniary and natural abundance, we could not secure for our generation and those to come the existence of . . . a substantial remnant of a once great endowment of wild and scenic rivers." — (William Anderson, Congressman from Tennessee, Arguing for passage of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act (1968))
