This past year Jason was involved in a bike accident that sent him over his handlebars. Luckily the accident happened right in front of the volunteer ambulance of the town of Durham, CT. On the way to the Yale/New Haven Hospital, the ambulance medics cut off all his clothes with a pair of enormous scissors. Three hours later, and all good news, found Jason and Anthea forty-five minutes from home without a wallet, cell phone, or clothes.
