Geocaching accident

On the way back from a birthday party on Saturday, I was rear-ended. They messed up my bumper, and tore my tire cover.

Getting out of the Blazer, they mentioned that I was the first geocacher that they had met in person since they started geocaching. They knew from my bumper stickers which they had just smushed. They were admiring the stickers when they ran into me.

So I invited them to a geocaching party that evening.

I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've invited someone to a party after they have crashed into me. I somehow guess this is rather uncommon.

How's the other party from your vehicle doing? Everything okay? How much damage to that Blazer?

The little person is doing well. She had a small chafe on her neck, from her seatbelt, which was not even noticeable the next day.

The Blazer, on the other hand, was a little smooshed. It crumpled the hood somewhat, and broke a few things on the front grill and bumper. Although I expect that it fared better than some vehicles might have. One does not run into a Jeep and come away unscathed!

We saw you stopped in traffic, and by the time we turned around and turned around again to try to see if you needed any help, you were gone. We were worried. Glad to know you and little one were not hurt.

Have fun with your Geocaching!
