also everyone who helped out when i had my little "event" on the trail, i owe you. had it not been for vern finding me when he did, then lior, peter, and jimmy hanging out with me til the cavalry arrived, i was very close to riding out by myself back to panamint solo. that would have really sucked, but i was starting to panic a bit.

pat (pjh66) volunteered to sacrifice a day of riding and trucked me all the way back to mission hospital in mission viejo, which is very close to where i live, and as such helped my family a lot. driving all the way to lone pine wouldn't be much fun for them.

now all i gotta do is concentrate on getting better and not go koo-koo from boredom and impatience. it's going to be a lot harder for me to win a sexy legs competition with all my new scars, but i like a challenge. as ugly as my leg's going to be, it could be worse --- it could look like nowwhat's face, and that would be a real bummer.
and now for the fun stuff --- here's a few pics of my souvenirs from DV:






holy shit tom, that is so gross
i had no idea you shaved your legs?

Glad your are ok, Cathy. No broken bones nor soft tissue damage.

Looking pretty gnarley there, Tom. Ahem, Franken-Tom!

I found the training wheels that my BIL shipped me after my last wreck. I can rip back down to SJC and install them on Tom's bike.






edit: I guess if we are handing out training wheels, we better buy them by the gross.

Damn Cathy, glad you are OK!

It's been so long since I've been out I'll need some of those training wheels.
