No that was Redbud who runs into people. I was trying to get my bike to move (by hand). At a loaded weight of about 700 pounds, it was being recalcitrant, at which point my knuckles dropped to the ground and my brow protruded. I gave a mighty pull and there was a massive POP in my right arm. What followed was a ride to the ER in Steamboat, a visit to the Ortho surgeon, and an MRI. Partially torn biceps tendon. Six weeks of physical therapy then we see if I have to have surgery.

no, but there is/was a very good Mexican place right next to the Best Western on the main (old) drag.

Let me know if there is still a mile long oil streak on Push Mountain Rd (343 IIRC) starting about 3 or 4 miles off of Hwy 14.

Oh yeah, I broke my arm playing baseball - got hit by a bad inside pitch.

Going to be in Memphis for a conference 10/14-20, then heading out to Shiloh NP and points south. Any advice for restaurants, evening entertainment, and day trips welcome. No KLR this time, hoofing it on the KLT

Also any advice on a good place to overnight in the Birmingham or Montgomery area is appreciated

Thanks!

On Thursdays we usually get together somewhere for a RTE. You're invited. Keep an eye on this thread to find out where. If you know where you're staying we can plan to meet in that area.
