I decided that, regardless of whatever else had happened to me, I wasn't bleeding inside and was in no imminent danger. The only way out was a long crawl to the road, where a passing motorist could offer help. I reached across my body and tried to grab some sod to pull myself onto my stomach. The ground was so sandy, however, that it gave way at my grasp. I tried again and again and was finally able to get turned over. I looked around to get my bearings and to decide on the easiest route to take. I used my left arm to pull myself and pushed with my right hand at my side. I was able to crawl, but after dragging the dead weight of my body about 3 feet, I had to stop and rest a few minutes. Then I was able to go another 3 feet and rest again.
