    I think I could be talked into some lower level single track on my X Challenge as long as the person that talks me into it is willing to help me pick its 350lbs out if gets into a ditch or otherwise... :D

    Glad you had a good time, wish I had been able to make it. At least I have more riding days head to look forward to. :freaky

    I met 4 deer at the tree farm by Luck Peak at dusk going home. We parted company in agreement that a close encounter was all that was needed.

    8th street is gated and locked, so we ended up going out Rocky Canyon, followed it to Robie Creek/ Clear Creek, and took Grimes creek to Hwy 21, and slabbed it home. There were a couple of slightly muddy spots, one that looked sloppy but it wasn't that bad. I saw a turkey on Clear Creek, and two deer before we left Boise :)

    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!!!!!!! :gerg


    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? :cry

    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) :wink: 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. :evil :deal

    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.

    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.

    is that the "Blood Moon" they've been talking about?? or is that closer to Easter?... would be cool to be way out there away from city lights to see it, but I've got to be at work early Tuesday Morning...

    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 :)
