Best of luck with your recovery. Remember this ... "attitude is everything!"
Poondangle,

You might take a look at needle therapy along the way - dry needling tissue in my leg significantly improved my recovery path.

Though I did a stop screaming instruction more than once

-going to get in on all the good vibes going around here. Great time and people. I thought my day was over and Pete Hascher's rally team helped my bike get on for another 3 stages!

Brian- wish you the best with the recovery!

Ryan, I wish I would have left better instructions. You should have pulled the injector off my bike!

Everyone, the recovery is going remarkably well so far. I just got permission to quit peeing into a measuring bucket.

Freestyle urination is a major hurdle to independent living.

I get to leave the hospital tomorrow!

I obviously won't be racing BRS, but I might come volunteer if y'all would take me in. The volunteers on stage seriously helped out tremendously. They got me off the stage safely, recovered and stored my bike, helped load it, and checked up on me in the hospital. It's time to pay that forward.


No MS Contin is the best medicine, then Dilaudid, then humor.

Voted


And registered for BRS yesterday. The DRZ looks like it's been through WWII so I have some work to do.

Great Rally!

Wow, what a great weekend! I really enjoyed hanging out and rallying with all the riders and crew at the rally. From what I can tell, racing motorcycles really doesn't get much better than that. Awesome competition where you are free to push to the limit and beyond.

Brian - sorry your first rally ended after a few stages. Heal up quick and I hope to see you at another rally down at some point.

Thanks again to Braden for setting up the house and Jonathan, Dan, and Rebecca for the pit support.

Now I can't stop thinking about trying out Black River Stages...

Ken

Update

So I finally made it home yesterday. It was a pretty painful car ride home. Not nearly as bad as the car ride from WV to Harrisonburg, but none the less, not pleasent. My three biggest goals for the next couple of days is to:

1. Get cleaned up. I still haven't been able to bathe since before the race. Gross!!!

2. Get the negative side effects of the hospital treatment under control. None of the doctors or nurses seemed to care much when I told them I was allergic to tape. The first bandage they used on my incision was this massive self sticking foam thing. I've had a bad skin reaction to it, and now my back and underarm is covered in uncomfortable blisters.

3. The bike is here, I just need to get it unloaded. Maybe some local ADV guys can help with that.

I canceled my BRS reservation. But, depending on how the shoulder is doing, I might come volunteer.

Tom, where on FB were you getting those pictures. Also, why was Gage hit with so many penalty minutes?

Gage might have gotten a little carried away when leaving the Parc Expose, I think someone told him to put his beer down and get his bike outta there and he did so in a.....agressive?....manner.

Check out some great shots from Jordan Apgar here:

Great rally! Just caught up on this thread. :)

Note to all, you can sign up to volunteer in the same account that you use to sign up to go racing. It's the home tab when you first get in. :)

Cheers!
Anders

Here's a link to the official place for NASA Rally photos. I'm sure more pics will find their way here in the coming weeks so check back periodically.

http://photos.nasarallysport.com/2013RallyWestVirginia


Riders should have gotten a password to post pics. Check the e-mail you have on file with NASA for the details and post up whatever your friends/crew may have captured.

Anders, please pass along to the RWV people my thanks for all of the unplanned support. The crew/sweep/volunteers did a fantastic job handling my little excursion. I can't thank everyone enough.
