Camping and 3D Scanning

I am afraid this is going to be short. I have some GREAT shots of some really, really interesting geologic oddities that I would love to share.

Instead. I would like to share a warning.

DO NOT TRUST ANYONE DRIVING IN FRONT OF YOU.

A woman in front of me hit my vehicle with what could only be described as an entire truck tire in the middle of the road. This tire was is poor shape, judging by the fact that, not only did it split into more than five or six pieces, but for the rapidity of its damage.

I have a Mazda 3. It was nice. Not too nice, mind you. It is, after all, simply a family car.
After being hit by the damned truck debris, it is now a mess. The police (Arkansas State Police) told me that there was absolutely nothing I could do.  Damnit. I called my insurance company (State Farm). I will still eat the vast majority of the damage. Great.

The moral: THIS is WHAT a freaking TIRE can do to a vehicle, if you let some moron ahead of you drive over it and propel it, in many pieces into your car.
