Snap, Crackle, Pop...

And he's out for the season... That's how this summer started out. Was on a muddy group ride in Oakridge, about 80% done with Heckletooth when I washed out on a slowish off camber corner and went OTB... I've dislocated by shoulder a few times snowboarding as a young lad but it hasn't happened in almost 10 years. I was able to pop it back in and limp down the trail only to get to the bottom, reach up to take my helmet off, and have it dislocate AGAIN!! No fun... Fast forward and I just got back from the CT Scan which showed a Boney Bankart fracture, which is when the humerus chips off a piece of the socket wall as it dislocates. If you don't get this piece put back then your bone has a nice little channel to slip out of more easily... So look like surgery is in the near future! I'm going to use this blog to record my weekly recovery process to hopefully assist others in knowing what to expect for this somewhat common injury...

Looking at this glass 1/2 full I have a brand new business idea to try and get up and going! I've been quietly working on Topo Trail Maps for the better part of this year but only recently have realized the potential! Stay tuned for updates on both the recovery and getting these maps out into the world!
