A year ago this weekend I got hefted into a wheelchair and, after five weeks confined to bed indoors, on my back, and staring up at popcorn ceiling tiles, my Mom pushed me around outside the hospital. Wet January soil smelled wild after so much time breathing filtered, antiseptic air. It's a privilege to be able skin up Sunlight Mountain Resort this weekend. I'm grateful that my biggest concern this time was forgetting sunscreen.

yeah!!!!! Way to keep getting after it!!Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

Grant is like a one-man cheer squad! The guy is pretty freaking pumped on life in general and on pedaling bikes together in particular.
This weekend I was riding in Moab with Grant Helgeson, who's been a close friend for 15 years and with whom I've shared hundreds of days on bikes, skis, and foot. Last time we hung out was over a year ago and I was just relearning to walk with a walker. So, it was really special to be out on the move with him again and I surprised even myself by cleaning nearly all of Navajo Rocks trail.
And here's where the crazy serendipitous part of the weekend happened: We had stopped at an intersection to check the map when Leah, the physical therapist who worked with me during my time at Criag Hospital rolled up! So, for half of the 17 mile loop, I pedaled not only with one of my best adventure pals but also one of the people responsible for getting me back on my feet!
With hundreds of miles of trail in the region, what are the chances? If we'd been just a minute slower, we never would have known we were following Leah's tire tracks.

Randomly decided to check this thread. What a positive way to start my Sunday."Those 1%ers are not an avaricious "them" but in reality the most entrepreneurial of "us". If we had more of them and fewer grandstanding politicians, we would all be better off."

We rode Whole Enchilada yesterday. When I was in the hospital a friend mailed me a rock from Porcupine Ridge and it's been a daily reminder of one of mountain biking's testpieces. There were a lot of spots that I used to clean that look a lot trickier now. Still, I'm impressed with how much more confident I feel riding rocky trails and how much more ledgy stuff I can pedal get up and down than even a month or two ago.
If was my first time riding in Moab in July. It was in the low 50s at the trailhead but 104f when we got to the river 27mi and 7000ft lower. It was hot enough that a rock chip from January decided yesterday was the day to spiderweb out across the windshield. That's real hot. Might keep future Moab riding plans confinded to Spring and Fall,

Good work, Jim!.....I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

This is more inspiring than "the Halls of Montazuma" ie. Karl Malden's letter ,they read in the end referencing the hopeless lieutenant .
Surely, hope is what led your recovery;..... tis truly the 'mother of all men'.
