Well Here it Comes....

Well, just got home from seeing the specialist (2 hour visit) looked at my x-rays he took the time to go over everything. x-ray didn't look good even to my untrained laymen eye. So, Hip Replacement on 1 July. I am So, not looking forward to this. he said about 90 to 120 days for a good recovery 6 weeks out of commission... in bone mending time.

I will get a cortisone shot next week to get me through till July. I hate this getting old shit!!!!!!!


Video is even the left hip... just like me.




Like I've ALWAYS preached "RIDE WHILE YOU CAN" Your not getting any younger.


Doctor said no more "high impact stuff" after hip replacement....... just what does that mean? no more on the pegs rock hopping?

Ouch!!! No more high impact stuff = less "hair on fire" and more "smell the flowers".

Not sure if I should say I am sorry for you or say I am happy for you on the hip replacement. Hopefully it will go well and we can all be happy you had it done.

Get in all the fun and riding you can before D Day (Doctor Day, July 1) You never know what the future will bring.

Let me know when you are healed enough to go out for a ride with me in the Suzuki. I am sure we can find some interesting places to explore. Not as good as riding, but still a way to get out and ride (drive) some fun areas.

I am finally off the walker and just using crutches to assist is getting around and we plan to take the Suzuki out tomorrow for a little ride.

Are you going to the Radioman presentation at Happy Trails May 9th? The two or us are going. Hope to see you there.

Sam, my mother, who passed away over 10 years ago at age 83, used to say, "Craig, this old age is not for sissies!" The older I get, the more I am finding out what she said is really true. Just keep in mind, that regardless of how much you hate getting older, it beats the alternative.

I will be there for the Radioman Presentation. I Can assure you it will be good the pictures and videos he has compiled in his travels are amazing, along with a great insight about his interactions along the way.

About that Suzuki ride abound may have to take you up on that one... could be fun.

I am pretty sure I saw you descending the hill from the landfill yesterday in the Suzuki. Too late to wave.

Shhhhh.... Katy was out of town and I was suppose to be behaving myself, not out tooling around in the Zuke.

If she reads this I might be



Actually, I drove up there because the sign mentions a shooting range. Never saw a shooting range. Do you know where it is?

You go past the scale house and turn left heading north. Then take another left and head down the hill.

I was already thinking of posting an overnighter for Monday night, but I'll join you on Sunday. FYI there is going to be a full moon and a full lunar eclipse early Tuesday morning, and I may camp somewhere that night as well.

Yes, It's the "Blood Moon". It supposedly the first of four consecutive blood moons which signify the beginning of the end of the world. The full moon will rise @ 8:12 pm, will start eclipsing @ 1:07 am and will end @ 3:25 am. I plan on staying up late and drinking some whiskey while I howl at the moon :)
