On June 8th I crashed really hard and dislocated a bone in my hand. The doc who put my hand back into my wrist was kinda 50/50 about putting some pins in depending on how it was healing. On June 13 I had some more x-rays and they turned out great! No surgery needed. The doc basically told me to just take it easy and not to be an idiot. Harder said then done but I think Im doing a good job, so far.

This past Saturday I went up to the test of metal and took to the feed zone party. I got to feed Neal Kindree (race winner!), Kevin Calhoun, David Vunic, and Mike Hunter. Not a bad group of legends eh? It was really fun being on the other side of things and watching the race. I could get used to this........once or twice.    
up up up. The splint on my hand looks good.
On Sunday Mike Levy, Melanie, Max, Myself, and Mikes dog Sherpa hiked up to the Slesse Memorial. Its the first time I have done this hike with clear weather. Its an unbelievable hike cause the rock out there is just wild. I wish the Nesakwatch creek valley had a village in it. I would live there. If it was Europe it would have a great little village, but its Chilliwack and there is just an old abandon logging road. That valley feels like your in the swiss Alps but you're just in Chilliwack. Crazy stuff.

we drove mikes van up, that thing can do some serious off roading.

Never one to sit still I headed out for a road ride with gravel roads yesterday. The hand was a bit sore on the bumps so I just took it easy. It was fun to do some exploring and I think I might have some new gems to ride or possible areas for secret trails. I think Ill be stuck to easy gravel roads for a bit. The hand feels better everyday but I don't want to be a dummy and Im going to let it heal up before any hucking of meat happens.
