Last night I was surprised by Rich who pulled up at around 10pm at our house and asked if I wanted to go to the call of Duty Release shindig at Pentagon City. At that time I was through piece 47 of 162 pieces of mail that had accumulated during my trip, and had to pass. I would have loved to have gone and hung out with him, but I think this week will be mainly dedicated to making my room livable, considering I had just THROWN stuff in here before I left on my trip.
Anyways, here is what I missed… and of course, Rich titled the image “CODPinupgirls.jpg”, which I figured was “Cash on Delivery Pinup Girls”, and asked if it was a virus. It was not… it was this:
In case you haven’t checked it out lately, or didn’t know about it… There is a map of the Handstands I have done.
Well, I didn’t end up hiking in the backcountry tonight. I was heistant about hiking 20 miles alone in grizzly bear country, the weather is completely dreary, and mom asked I didn’t. She didn’t cause dad got into a biking accident, along with just caring for my safety. He flipped the bike and messed up his right elbow, broke some ribs? and fractured a vertebrae or two? Not exactly sure on the exact details, but I got to talk to him tonight, which was great. We were worried he broke his femur (thigh bone) but luckily that is just heavily bruised. Lesson goes… WEAR YOUR HELMET… He did too, and that’s probably why he will heal. Heard that his helmet was broken all to pieces, so thankfully that took most of the impact. Crazy time. I’m hoping he will do a full recovery but it sounds like it’ll be painful here for a while.
I’m in Livingston Montana after checking out Yellowstone for my last day today. Heading up to Glacier National Park tomorrow
Got to see old faithful, do white water rafting on the yellowstone river, hike to Osprey Falls, and hang out.
Love you Dad!
Top of Beartooth Pass… Quite possibly my favorite road…
