Massively overheated... uh oh.... starting to try and figure some options before it gets dark. Family is in the air so can't warn them, etc. Finally got it going and babied it over the pass, turning on the heat to high to help keep it cool. Took the long way home along the Gorge so we wouldn't have to climb Hood again, not sure if that was a good idea or not. We made it but not till 1:40 AM. Ugh... made for a long 12 hour work day on Wednesday.

I need to go ride so I can get some rest :)

It's been a week - You hobble out to the bike yet to assess the damages? Or are you pissed at the fugker for hurtin yous?

Wonderinging if you could drive over that rear rack with your "Apple Jam-Mobile" to Persuade it back into "Flattiness".

Hope your convelesing and recovery is going well!

Sorry about that A.J.

Sorry to hear about your accident. Hope the recovery is progressing rapidly.
I did a nice long ride around the mountain to HR and then down to Carson and up to windy ridge yesterday.
It was a lot of one lane blacktop and gravel and I was thinking about your situation on most every tight blind corner I entered.
See you out there soon I hope.

Onward and upward

The gaping hole is one week post stapling and is healing well, the kidney is no longer painful and Jeff is getting around pretty well, mostly without crutches now. He's still sleeping like an old bear in hibernation though. Hardly get two words out of him per day.

What a great group of folks! You don't need to thank us for a great gathering. You all went out of your way to keep the party going in Jeff's absence. He was pleased to come home to a bunch of happy, laughing hooligans on Saturday evening. From my perspective, you all turned a bad situation into a time of laughter and good times. If we had been alone, we would have likely been a bit down in the dumps. As it turned out, we got to join in the fun and feel waaaay better about the situation. to all of you!

AND, there will be a 3rd annual HRVR!
