On SUTURDAY may 26th was a long day, I got up about 7 o’clock in the morning at igors house and vasil was already up working on the map route. I was tired because we only had about 3 hours of sleep. My self and Amanda got into a disagreement and she decided to go back home and igor would give her a ride, while vasil’s parents will stay with us as we do the ride. This was a very strange day, it was like we had signs written all over that day, to not ride that day.
We put the bikes on vasils parents truck so we could go back to the same starting point we left off, as vasil backed up the truck he bottomed out and bent his front tire a little, but we didn’t know this Until we got on starting point from our ride. We took the bike to a bike shop and the person working on it didn’t have the right tools so he turned the spoke too much so we had to take the bike to another shop and the guy in the shop fixed the bike and did it for free, once he found out what me and vasil where doing for the YAI. The moment we got ready to ride it starting to pour out side so we got some chineese food and waiting for the rain to go away.
Once the rain stooped we got ready to ride, we got our bikes ready and started to ride, it was ironic vasils mom told us it may be a better idea if we just go to the hotel get some rest and start the ride the next day, but I think both of us were just too anxious to ride and get it over with. So we go on our bikes and started to ride. We rode for about 20 minutes or a half an hour it was all downhill, and the hills where pretty big, we must have done about 45 miles an hour while holding my breaks light going down those hills. Then we hit another hills this one was a little different it was very grainy and wet also extreme curvy, vasil was in front of me cause he had the route on his phone and he was leading the way. I had my break on while going down so I was behind a about 30 feet away from vasil, as we made a turn I saw vasil front tired shaking a little, then I saw him come off the bike, it happened it seconds I got to him in about 5 seconds , I saw his bike on one side and then I saw or thought I saw his camel pack next to the rail, I thought vasil fell down the hill and his pack was there, as I ran to the bag I realize that it was him against the rail, I pulled him off the rail and his faces was full of blood with a huge gash on his fore head, he was foaming from the moth like a seizure. I took off my shirt and cover his head injury, while his parent came down the hill top on their truck, his dad ran towards us and we kept him vasil down while everyone around us helped us. We got ice from a lady driving a truck, he was in shock, man! If it wasn’t for that helmet he would’ve never made it. Sometimes is hard to believe in god or something bigger than us but when you see what I saw yesterday is hard not to believe. The ambulance came very fast and the cops too, they got him on a stretcher and we took him to geisinger wyoming valley hospital in plains PA. We didn’t know if he was going to make it to through the night, he was in and out and it was a horrible site to see, a good friend almost gone in a second a young guy at the middle of his life waiting for a miracle to happend.
The rest of vasils family came to the hospital later on and they moved him from the ER to CPU section of the hospital to wait for the night. We all stood there
and waited for day 3
