Are you fully recovered yet? It's been three months.

Sorry. Mostly healed. Still scabbing after 3 months. Other than that, the bills are getting paid by the TM insurance and the TM shirt brings comments whenever I wear it.

Just completed a 10 day Wilderness First Responder Course. Feel a lot better about dealing with some of the emergencies that can arise on some of the CannonRides. For those that are curious the course requires a lot of studying and may be more work than fun for many.

Still strongly recommending that more people that share our recreational interest take a two day Wilderness First Aid course, or at least a standard first aid course from the Red Cross sometime over the winter.

First aid skills are useful, even for managing minor wounds and injuries.

Good stuff Cannon. Especially 'noble' since you aren't necessarily doing this for yourself but more to help others. And in my short time here I've already seen two pictures of you splinting someone's broken arm...

And speaking from experience, a good knowlege of first aid is something most people don't really appreciate, until you really need it - and then it's usally too late.

Israeli Bandages

I have been carrying "Israeli bandages" for a couple of years now. If you are not familiar with them, have your first aid trainers become familiar with them and get educated. Military has been using them for years now with excellent results.

They are sterile, can be self applied, apply pressure,used as a tourniquet (while not the best, can be done) or wrap for a splint. They are shrink wrapped/sealed and easy to pack. If you buy some, just be aware they have an experiation date because they are sterile. You can find them for about $5 each for a 4" bandage, but may have a short life expectancy. Expect to pay about $10 each

Bryan...anything new on Cannonshot.Colorado?

Military field dressings are great. Like you say, dressing, bandage, sling, pressure dressing . . . All packaged compactly in a durable vinyl overwrap that is tough enough to be packed in riding pack or vest. I'm sure the many military vets we have are familiar with the tried and true edition we've used for years.

I should have mentioned to those that were packing SAM splits now that it would be good to pack about 4 cravats with them as well. Cheap but good to have for all kinds of things.

New information on the clotting bandages is that some are not very effective and the ones that are may be doing some damage. It will be interesting to see what comes out of that.

As far as upcoming rides I may be hosting . . .

It is the time of the year when I work the research and planning for the season. I got sidetracked for a while doing some research and GPS work for the Trans-Canada folks so I am a little behind schedule on my own stuff. Starting to work some projects.

Sounds like it would be good for retirees and school teachers.

There has been some talk of perhaps putting together a manageable sized group on big bikes to ride places they shouldn't ride big bikes.

Those look like some nice rides. You can't go wrong with those. Not quite what I had in mind though.

There is a new KTM 990 Adventure R now taking up space in my garage for just this trip. Please keep us in the loop on this one!

I've got a request for another CannonTrek style run on the Northern Wisconsin Adventure Trail. Some folks are traveling a significant distance to get here so the riding days will be Sunday through Wednesday, 12-15 May.

Looking at a fast and light style ride. Inexpensive motels. Could be wet and cold. This particular group ride is not a good one for novice dual sporters.

Looks like I will be able to take a few more people along. Let me know if you are interested in maybe joining in. Not sure how it will all shake out.
