Did our best to get some climbs done for you at Red Rocks, but the first morning we were here the rain started, and it's looking like no sandstone climbing until about the time we leave. Mari might be able to grab some pitches for you while I'm working tomorrow or Monday though -- we'll see.

Hang in there, and take Phil's advice on the rehab: diligent, but not over-zealous.

my point is, don't think you gotta give up the things you love. just be diligent with your PT (which i've no doubt you'll give 100% to) and be patient.

You're right weezy. I wasn't really saying that, just joshing around a bit. What I meant was, I'm more stoked on climbing these days then riding is all...


mike hang on tight
i've thrown to the forces that be
between you and i
something that i enjoy!
though you may make of it what you'll.

regardless of how the weeds grow,
i admire you
and what you are battling thru,
and so i sent to you
what i hope will aid your passage.


Thanks Weege, I will keep battling!! I am very much looking forward your package!

full health within a year from now

Well Yippeee, but of course! Been thinking of you as I've been skiing my arse off this late season, but dang, it keeps following me around! Skied my 43rd day today which I thought was purdy good until a lady on the lift with me said it was her 76th day and she was close to me in age!

I would give up all my snowboards for one climbing day.
We need to get you and Sandra down to Moab and Indian Creek. I know this spring at Sushi Fest is too early for you, but next fall you guys are welcome to be guests of us. We're back down there in Oct and Nov. Moab has a great vibe...you guys would love it!

Sorry sleep is challenging. Sleep deprivation combined with pain....not good. Not good.

As for "cookies"....yeah well....I guess set it to "not accepting cookies".

As for the auction...there are a few things I want to add but won't be back to my home base for a couple weeks so I'll add them at that time.

You gotta lot strength and insight there for a young guy! Down the road people who are suffering go back and read these threads of folks that have shared their journey and redouble their own perseverance when faced with adversity.

May the Sandman sprinkle you with sleepy dust, as for cookies, stick with Girl Scouts for a bit!

A great good vibe, there, Mike. (Mayor) Todd is long on stoke and generosity, as are you.

Good old days.

Well, we managed to safely eat dinner together tonight without being run over mid-meal courtesy of some fine Splitz grill take-out. Afterwards we headed down to the games room where we quickly scared away two residents that were enjoying a nice peaceful game of billiards.

Mike, call me if you need anything, or have a request for tasty goodies. anyone else for delivery service to GF Strong. 6o4-8i5-8637

Wow, a full on Larry caught on tape. How unfortunate for Luke and his sponsors- Hambone Applesauce, Newt's Ear Fungus Remover, and Handjammies™.

HA. . . the cutest thing on this page is Luke passed out on the ping pong table RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A FRIKKEN GAME!

CRACK ME UP!

BigMike, Dood. . . with stuff like that goin' on, you'll be laughin' yourself to a total recovery!

P.S.

Thank you for all the kindness and compassion you've showed me, even before my injury, you shared my stoke.

No. . . THANK YOU.

Some of the best lessons my dad ever taught me were tips on STOKE MANAGEMENT. . . one that will stick with me forever was:

ALWAYS BE SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE WHO SHARE THE STOKE!

It just makes managing your own a whole lot easier!

Hey Ghost! Missed this last night didn't I? Bummer about the weather. Bruce and I really hit a great window I guess! Hopefully you guys get a window, otherwise head out to the limestone or north to the basalt crags. Check my Vegas thread for more beta, can't remember the name of it..

Hope Mari gets out!!!

We need to get you and Sandra down to Moab and Indian Creek. I know this spring at Sushi Fest is too early for you, but next fall you guys are welcome to be guests of us. We're back down there in Oct and Nov. Moab has a great vibe...you guys would love it!

Oh heck ya!! That sounds like a plan!! I've been wanting to goto IC for awhile now! Moab would be sick too!! Slick rock Mecca I hear!



Sorry sleep is challenging. Sleep deprivation combined with pain....not good. Not good.

Think I may have that figured out. Drugs are under control now, and last night a bunch of the crew came down and we tuckered ourselves out in the game room. I slept like a baby. I was woken up twice for drugs, but total, i got about 11.5 hours last night!! Awesome catch up.. Needed that. Big time.

You gotta lot strength and insight there for a young guy! Down the road people who are suffering go back and read these threads of folks that have shared their journey and redouble their own perseverance when faced with adversity.

Thanks. I have a lot of time to think too. ;) I do hope people can use this thread to get through tough times in the future.

Yep. In retrospect I should have known. I will be more vigilant from now on. My bad. Apparently weed messes with your nervous system and can slow re growth. This is not what I want, so I am not going to mess with the stuff anymore. Period.


Big Mike - sendin' the love bro.


Thanks Cowpoke. Every message means a lot right now. All this support keeps me stoked and focused on the goal. Walking. Everything else is bonus.


Big Mike;....you are strong, my brother;...you got this;.....Look forward to sharing a rope w/you when you get this all behind you.

Todd, Wow! Thanks! I would enjoy that!

Listen to your doctors, drink more beer, and stay w/it. Next year when you come to So. Calif., let's go climbing....or I'll meet you in vegas or something too

Sounds like a plan!!

I also would like to send you a check to help out a bit/quote]

Thank you Todd. I still can't believe the support this community is dishing out, left right and Centre! It's inspiring. I have always believed I could get back to doing what I love, you guys multiply that 100 fold!!


A great good vibe, there, Mike. (Mayor) Todd is long on stoke and generosity, as are you.
Hell ya!! Wow. Stoked.

Great pic Andy!!

Relic and everyone else, thanks for coming by last night!! It was a blast!!

Did he eat the cookies too ?
LOL!! ;) Luke had a big day yesterday! Up early, hiked a bunch of gear up to the base of uwall to try and do it in a push, forgot the Gri Gri so said f that, then went bouldering to show Ryand up ;) then down here to visit. He's high energy but even the energizer bunny has to burn out sometime ;)

Ahh style points shmyle points... It was super funny and i can always use a laugh!! ;)

Stoked Kris! Can't wait to see ya!


Wow, a full on Larry caught on tape. How unfortunate for Luke and his sponsors- Hambone Applesauce, Newt's Ear Fungus Remover, and Handjammies™.

LOL HAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHA!!!! Newt's ear fungus remover!! Lol!

BigMike, Dood. . . with stuff like that goin' on, you'll be laughin' yourself to a total recovery!

LOL!! Last night was a riot! I think I gained a bunch of recovery points. Most fun I've had since I've been injured for certain!

ALWAYS BE SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE WHO SHARE THE STOKE!

Words to live by to be certain.
