    MORE TW THERAPY

    My shoulder is getting much better. It might even be a keeper. Last weekwas my final appointment with the surgical team that installed a new shoulderjoint on my right side. They put me through some maneuvers and concluded thatmy recuperation was ahead of schedule and proceeding well.
    I asked” Can I go to the hills with my TW200?” The PA said just startwith a little moderation. Now, anyone that knows me knows that moderation couldbe my middle name if it weren’t for the fact that balls to the wall hasbeen my usual approach to riding. I will turn 70 in October and even though I love speedy adventures, I may be able to enjoy them at a slightly lower speed.
    So, Monday, 8-26-13 I decided to head to the hills. We have had a bunch of forest fires here in Idaho and I was anxious to see the damage in the Pine Creek drainage. This area has a really neat road down through it. It was in this valley that a previous ride report a year ago was traversed.
    So off I went. Stopped a Quisno’s for a sandwich to go and up the hill I went. The first part of the ride was paved, up Bogus Basin Road. Made It up to the ski resort in short order and just kept on cruising for another 6 miles to Forest Road 366 in the North Fork of Pine Creek.. This is a well kept old logging road. I wanted to go down it to check out how far the fire had come up the mountain. All of the back country was clouded with smoke from fires all over the West.
    I stopped about 8 miles in to take off my jacket and eat some of my lunch. I had still not seen any sign of the fire and was feeling good. My shoulder was doing well so instead of turning around and going back out the way I came in; I decided to go out the bottom of Pine Creek to the Grimes Creek main road. Turns out the fire had been in the South fork and had not messed up this beautiful area. This was an easy ride. From there it is 4 miles down to the paved road to Idaho City(21). I then road the highway back home. It was a totalof 72 miles; I needed that.
    I had physical therapy this morning and of course my shoulder was a tiny bit sore. I knew that the therapist would work this out of me; I call these sessions, ”Twist and Shout”. Sure enough those muscles responded and now I know I am ready for more adventures.
    Happy Trails All

    Excellent, good to hear!
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    Good to hear your recovery is going well....You will have to change your user name to "Robo-Ron" with all of the metal you now have inserted.

    Good to hear about you recovery Ron. It seems at 70 or + the recovery time increases a great deal. Ask me how I know, I pulled my right hand out of my wrist, and it was certainly more than overnight to recover from that surgery.

    Glad to hear everything's going well Ron, and that you got out for an enjoyable ride. Glad to hear also that some or your favorite riding areas haven't burned up. I hope you can get out some more before the snow flies! Thanks for sharing your report. Twist and Shout - that's funny! Probably not so much if you're on the receiving end, though.
    My handle is B-dub, I ride a T-dub, and drive a V-dub.

    Ron,

    Good for you...getting back in the saddle.

    I'm only a few months behind you, age wise.

    And I can sympathize with your pain. In May I tore the rotator cuff in my right shoulder...for the second time.

    Multiple shots of cortisone have me riding again...awaiting possible surgery.

    Happy Trails!

    Good for you Ron, glad you are up and going again.
    B-dub and I rode back in April.
    While on our ride I decided to check front tire pressure while riding.
    He told me I need to " Mosey " down the trail, see more and still live to tell about it.
    Great advice,

    VDR
