Injury has me down, but not out. The day before I decided to break myself, I received a new-to-me Alpacka raft in the mail. It was like some kind of cruel joke but I was still beyond thrilled. This is one piece of gear that I have been meaning to buy for a long time and I finally had the means to do so. You can imagine how painful it has been to sit here broken and stare at it for weeks. I got the OK from the doctor to start using my arm more. He said I should be fine with most light pulling motions, but pushing (i.e. resting on handlebars) will be a problem for a while. So I decided to do a little physical therapy and take my new raft for a spin.
I had an idea. I could skateboard away from my house a few miles and then paddle back. Seems like a pretty good way to kill an afternoon. So that’s just what I did. I also experimented with trying to make a little video.
