Final Impact

As Jesse and Tom embark on the most sought after rock climbing mountain in Oregon in their 4x4 Polaris RzRs, they realize that they are not alone and meet up with three Strangers, faces made up as skulls, and standing by their Rock Crawler, a much bigger more capable rock climbing rig.

After a couple of run-ins with these Strangers and finding an animal impaled by an arrow close to their tent, they come to realize that this could be the malicious work of the Strangers they met earlier, and decide to cut their trip short and head back for the staging area.

When they arrive, they are shocked to see that Tom's truck tires had been pierced by arrows and his windshield shattered. They make a dash back to their RzRs, when suddenly, the swooshing sound of an arrow rockets past the trees and strikes Tom's right RzR tire, causing it to hiss flat.

Tom hurry’s out from his RzR and hides behind it, but becomes a clear target and is struck in the leg by another arrow. He screams for help.

Jesse puts his life on the line and rushes for Tom pulling him to safety, as a trail of blood follows behind.

He grabs Tom's hand to apply pressure over the blood gushing wound, then quickly runs back to Tom's RzR, pulls a gun and shoots into the direction of where the arrows might be coming from, giving them just seconds to make their getaway back into Jesse's RzR and drive off.

Soon after, they skid near an entrance but realize it has been blocked with mounds of forest debris and by the very Strangers who want them dead. Right then, Jesse and Tom are forced to go back in the same direction they tried to flee from.

After countless nail-biting, death-defying close encounters, sharply elevated narrow paths and slippery trails, Jesse's RzR, and only lifeline back to civilization, is swept away into Gales Creek River, one of the fastest moving rocky rivers in Oregon.

And as they hike through a thick forest and a slew of unforeseen circumstances to find it, Tom realizes that even an ex-marine needs to rest and lies against a nearby tree.

Though reluctant, Jesse must leave his best friend behind so that he can find his RzR but then when he returns, sees that Tom has been taken.

Now, Jesse must learn the way of a hunter instead of being hunted. He pushes both his mental and physical capabilities, knowing that each pressing moment that goes by gets closer to Tom's last, and that He must fight to save Tom from these Strangers and on the most dangerous climb of all… Bone Crusher Trail.

Writer Statement

Much of what I write comes from the classics and my life. This idea was derived from the successful movies: Deliverance meets Maximum Overdrive with a hint of Jurassic Park except with a modern day twist. When I wrote “Final Impact” it was because of my love for the widely known sport of riding 4x4 RzRs in the Oregon Mountains and my close relationship with my best friend of 40 years. If I can convey all of the emotional feeling that we experience every day, then I know as a writer I’ve done all that I've wanted to do.
