(Scubalong was such an inspiration for some reason I must have subconsciously felt the need to follow in his footsteps... Or was it Lonestar?... )

Hi Finn
I think that was Bob showing off his scar during Thud dinner and I thing the scar is following us two
Those pictures are so vivid and so real
The last two pictures giving me goose bumps
Take care and speedy recovery will soon

Yeah, those two shots of the hillside singletrack over the river both made me long to go there and piss myself a little bit at the same time.

Thank you all for the kind words and comments on my photos, I'm glad you folks like and I got some decent images to review while recovering, maybe a RR will be in order....no better way relive good times than to put it down on ADV.
i know I'll be going to my happy place tomorrow at the hospital, thinking of DV n00bs good times and my short solo ride and of course my darling Nancy.

For anyone heading up that way to Kernville all the tracks from that ride are on my website if anyone wants to check them out. Probably not big bike friendly, would make for a great photo to have a GSA with Jesse's on that trail though.
Heck, if things go well Nancy and I might be able to make it to Jimmy's camp out, I highly doubt I'll be riding dirt by then but would be cool to see you folks and give nancy a chance to get off tarmac with some friends. Could be my turn to drive in and haul stuff up for folks and do some cooking.

I checked out that thread Bob, interesting stuff about various protection and crashes. I guess I'll be in the heavy metal club too! I asked the Dr. to make the cut look like a lightning bolt but he said no.

About upgrading gear.... Honestly, I had on some of the best gear on I can afford, and I probably wont be looking for any magical solutions when I get back in the saddle, no football pads for me... Lol I hit the ground pretty hard at decent speeds and after being throw in the air, something has to give when you land on your shoulder.
I will however make taking a Jimmy L class a high priority when possible.
I've ridden a lot of miles in crazy places and consider myself an experienced "intermediate" rider, but in the end I wasn't blindsided by a car, I lost control of the bike when presented with a sudden no traction challenging situation.
Maybe no person could have rode out of it, maybe a less experienced rider would have ended up far worse, maybe JL would have done a one handed wheelie though it while winking at the camera, who knows.
Maybe laying it down and low siding it would have been better instead of trying to ride out the slide.... maybe maybe maybe.
But I feel that having better skills combined with good gear is the best way to stay safe while riding, and I obviously have plenty of room to develop better control of the bike.


Thanks again for the support and PM's, you guys are awesome!

Finn, I feel for ya. Really I do. Today was the first time since March 6th (when I fractured my wrist) that I've ridden a bike - and it wasn't on dirt. Managed an easy commute to/from work, but it sure beats the general suckiness that is public transport. I am still bummed that I had to miss the rally and we didn't get to meet. I am eagerly awaiting the post announcing next year's rally.... hopefully you'll be there, or that we'll meet up sometime before then.

In the meantime, tell me more about this block and tackle setup you have.

I've been carrying it for years, finally had to use it when I went off a steep trail I couldn't get back up on easily and didn't want to tear up the side of the mountain. Worked perfectly and exactly the situation why I carry one for my solo adventures. Packs about the size of a cigarette pack.

http://www.happy-trail.com/Products/...-spc-PULL.aspx



I carry a couple of climbing slings out of my work climbing gear kit, I was lucky with a good rock to rig to this time and figure if there no natural rig point I figured I could pound my Enduro Star Trail Stand into the ground to tie off to, since I carry a 15' tow strap I can use that too if need be.










COngrats on getting back in the saddle, hope to meet you sometime soon and let our Bergs' meet!

Here's the GSA version of the recovery system... spendy, but still less expensive than a tow truck having to pull you back up to the trail...

Not for sale online from this site, unfortunately...
http://pugetsoundsafety.com/main.php...#cat=23&pid=73

Same item, but available for sale online...

finn, damn that's worse that i thought. i agree, the protective armor and jacket offered some degree of protection, without them it would have been a lot worse.

all of us here are hoping for your recovery. give us a shout if you need anything, which i'm sure we can come up with something.

andy - you're such a giver. like dave pinocono said, it's the gift that keeps on giving.....

folks. mark your 2014 calendar, march 27, 28 and 29. same as the last one, we are taking over the whole campground and hotel rooms.


however..........they have a new policy now. i have to make a deposit for the reservation. no more verbal.

PSR management wants you to know that they are thankful for the huge business they received from us. biggest so far this year. gas, lunch and alcohol tabs hit the fan. noobs on alcohol.....

That looks somewhat familiar.
This one is the result of a friends mountain bike accident.



Clavicle breakage seems to be going around.

I should add that the guy is back to full time work (fireman) and riding because he, with his wife's help, didn't exceed the doctors orders when it came to doing shit.
LET IT HEAL!!!
