    Scary stuff. That's why it's always a good idea to share

    The Navajo reservation is supposed to be "DRY" = No Alcohol is to be sold. Alcoholism and the associated violence are epidemic on the reservations in the SouthWest. Drug gangs are recruiting the unemployed indians especially the young ones.

    I (think) its common to see people laying on the side of the road in those parts. The people driving by probably thought he was drunk. And the passer-bys didn't see the wheelchair cuz the couple threw him out without his chair. This guy was lucky it wasn't winter.

    I've driven passed more vehicles and bloodied people on the side of the road than I can count.

    In some areas, if you'd stop, you'd be the one left on the side of the road bloodied.

    Oh. This is that road thru Gallup!

    A long-forgotten memory. A Saturday night, driving thru Gallup, Christmas Eve maybe, 1978?

    Road full of drunk Indians. (I deduced.) I did not stop.

    I had totally forgotten I bailed on KS Christmas break, freshman year college. Sorry, Mom. I had $200 and wanted to see big brother!
