You were very lucky in the incidents you described. Hopefully you future rides won't be so eventful. Many more experienced riders have had worse outcomes in similar situations. you don't sound discouraged so keep riding, in my experience it is unusual to have so many close call is such a short period of time. But then I like to hang on the back-roads.
I buy a lotto ticket every week, no money to be had!! I just want one million, thats all. I went to the Republic Rally and managed to not hit anything, except the keg during the keg push.
