AJ, what road is Suicide Grade off of? Is it Mill Creek? dvwalker and I rode from his property in Mosier ...made it to NF 17 at Brooks Meadow Rd; then made our way NE to Skyline Rd to the Dalles, for gas and food. We took Chenoweth back to Mosier ... but were wondering where Suicide Grade was.

aj, matt told me about your force majeure with a cager . Sounds like you might leak if you drink too much beer.

Heal up soon brother...

hope the rehabilitation is going well with the nursing staff

The hills around us were white yesterday morning,
but we just got rain at 1400ft.

Has he painted his orange yet?

I've been off mine since the first week.
I'm pretty sure my new shoulder muscle soreness was caused by those pogo stick crutches.

Suicide is off of Mil Creek, 1/8 mile past the end of it's pavement.
Sounds like you and DV rode Ketchum & John's Mill Rd, on your way over to 17?
....if so, you were looking down into the Mill Creek valley for 15 miles or so.

Rehab is certainly going quite well.
I predict a quick full recovery.
The nursing staff was nice, but not that nice....

I'm glad to see someone is getting out of the house and on the bike...! It looks like you timed it just right between the showers.

Question Bump!

With all the Bumping and talk of different Counts going on in other parts of the PNW I hated to see the Hood get lost three pages back... Is anyone riding over there?

Any updates on the healing process of you or your bike?

Here's Jeff's photo from the day the stitches came out. I wanted to post up a pic of the "original," but Jeff wouldn't let me. The knee looks waaaaay better now. Bike still hasn't been touched, other than everything he took apart to figure out all the parts that he needed. Took a ride by myself a couple of weeks ago up past Red Menace's place, but nothing since. Rain, cold, bleh! Fair weather rider here!

Maybe so, but it still makes me cringe to look at it.

I can just see Jeff, riding his mountain bike through Hood River...in his spandex tight shorts, & yellow Nike cycling shoes, pointing at his wound, & saying...i am the "adventure man"! BEAT THAT!!

Hey, Keith Richards would stick a cig & there & use it as a holder whilst bending a tune.

Furtunately, it's nothing close to a broken ankle

No screws
It didn t get into anything that needed to be screwed back together. I walk with no limp, and was without crutches after the first week or so. It's just sore, severed muscle, and a bunch of dead-end nerves. Nothing close to you twos' injuries, I feel pretty fortunate.

I'd be back on the bike now, if it wasn't still apart in the Garage. Parts are ordered, and someday I'll find time to put it back together....
