First ride for 2019 for me, it was a cracker!
Blue sky, hot but bearable, a light breeze and no crowds on the hill with tunes wafting up from below.
Village is crowded for the Blues Festival.
Summer inconsistencies......ho hum.
Epic weekend. Saturday was warm and dusty, had some really fun laps. Sunday was damp, but wow, the dirt was awesome (photo from Sunday) then today started damp and dried up. Gunbarrel has gone to weekends only now.
Me, so enduro.
Big shout out to Steph in the ticket office, she is a keeper @Thredbo (if that is Thredbo). Very professional, showed pretty much all the skills I would look for in front of house, I would map out a path for someone like that. Thanks for your help Steph (should you chance to see or hear of this) you were totally brilliant. Another small step forward, much appreciated.
Ooh, forgot my sunset shot (phone haha)
And a mega shout to the first aid staff Jo and Davo. And the doc. Fast, caring, bit of a smile and laugh. In a cast ~25 mins after a break and the boy was in a cast. Great stuff.
Hey @telecrag the lad really enjoyed riding with you and @theflyingmuzz ! Thanks for the tips, he was improving every run until he wasn’t!
I skipped the cast and went with a restricted movement brace for my arm. So much better.
What did that look like? Was that doc recommended?
Hinged for elbow with quad velcro, alloy spined, padded and removable.
Specialist treatment. Allowed some gated movement but prevented wrist twist.
Helped keep everything moving more than a cast and almost no muscle wastage.
Plaster is so 20th century.
You’ve got a big rack there @crackson !!
Thanks for the info, I’ll have a chat to the specialist about it when we get in to see him.
Plaster may be old but it was on and set within about 20 or 40 mins of the break happening so I’m pretty stoked. Would have been hours at a hospital or GP and I reckon the bloke doing it would have done more in most weeks of his career than the average GP would do in a lifetime!
PS you look younger than I thought you would.
Jo and Davo are very good friends of ours, you were in the best hands possible there.
