Taking Flight With My Road ID!

by ROAD iD Staff May 18, 2021

I was hiking alone on the South Kaibab Trail when I stumbled on a loose rock and fell over 25 feet off a cliff. Fortunately, I didn't fall all the way to the bottom of the canyon or I may have done more serious damage to my body. As I lay there with a fractured vertebrae, I felt at ease knowing I had my Shoe ID strapped to by boot.  I knew my Road ID had pertinent information which the rescuers used to see if I had suffered a concussion or not - although brain damage has always been questionable anyway. The Rescue Rangers also got a kick out of reading my personal quote on my Road ID: "If dead take the best then burn the rest." - I'm glad they didn't get to exercise that option.

About a month after the accident, I was still recovering and wearing a brace. Although I couldn't run the Rock 'n Roll 1/2 marathon, I walked it. And, yes, I had my Road ID strapped to my shoe. I just ordered another Road ID for my daughter, who plays goalie for a travel soccer team. If I miss her next game and she happens to get hurt, I know the information will be there. Thank You Road ID!
