    Without a person in the pic these trees just look like a tree with ferns around them. Once you put a person in the pic and see the ferns are around 4 feet tall they seem real big. So my shoulder was bothering me a little before but I think i finished off when I had to move this log that fell down. It may not look to heave but it was. :D

    Now you may look at the first pic and think to yourself it looks like a broken tree and laying on the ground at your feet. You may even think it is a few feet long. The pic does not give reference to the the size until you see me in the next pic with the same pieces of broken wood.

    So California is an interesting place with lots of huge trees and forest. There is also elk everywhere and they have no fear of humans. We head to some town and grab a hotel. My shoulder is getting to be more and more painful by the hour. Its time to get some food and sample the local brew pubs. So we find a place walking distance to our hotel and we get to the taste testing.:freaky

    So soon any pain I had was gone. In the morning I wake up and now things are starting to be very painful. We pack up after our few days of roaming around northern CA and head north back to OR. The trip back turns into a hell as my shoulder is in crazy amounts of pain and we have nothing to make that stop. Every bump and hard turn in the big truck is kicking my ass. We have HOURS to go and this is going to be a long drive! We took the scenic route and there is lots of twists and turns. Big mistake on my part. It now feels like someone is taking a steak knife and stabbed deep into my shoulder and twisting it with every bump. Not fun. It is very clear I am hurt now and not like any injury I have ever had. There was never a point where I knew that this is when I hurt it. So and me being a hard head and hate taking any medicine made it worse. If I had taken something to stop the inflamation it would have been much better.

    So we stop at some town and I need to buy a gun case for my pistol to fly home with it. When I was going to sign for the credit card purchase I could barely do it and I have to move my bad arm with the other. We hit a wal mart and grab some drugs. Still hours till home yet.
