Was on the pad Monday night went to get out of truck stepped down right on a cone flipped my butt out on to the asphalt hard. Blued my entire foot up skinned my elbows and the next morning could barely get out of bed. But I’m still at it, back to pad last night and again tonight. I’m old but got a hell of a will power.

Donna M., Just read your post and really hope that you are alright. Many of us even "old souls" have missed a step or slipped a time or two. Sometimes only the pride was hurt. Really I hope that you are OK and congrats to you for going right back at it. You show your true commitment to being successful at becoming a good driver.

That sucks! Epsom salt soaks help if you have access to a way of soaking the bruise! Glad you are OK

I know that embarassment well. i hope you recover quickly. love your go to spirit.

As for me.. "Klumsy Kearsey" was my childhood nickname. and yes, i got out of the truck at a customer and my foot missed the curb and i twisted my clutch ankle. it sucked and of course i had to drive 200 miles of back roads through lights and towns. so you arent alone in that either!!

Good luck on the pad and testing!!!! hang in there
