    Still Alive

    Just mentioning, fwiw, I’m still alive.

    Young life was so fun, but freedom is not free…so I am paying the price for having destroyed my spine and knees and shoulders.

    Motorcycles remain fun. I still love my wife and home and 14 y.o. dog.
    But the adventurous athletic phase of life has come to a close.

    I hope you’re all well

    You’re one of the best writers on this forum. Please keep coming back and sharing your stories, whatever they may be about

    Glad the box fan episode didn’t stop you from posting

    Also, that is one sad C&H!

    Still Alive

    People who do not have serious back issues really love recommending yoga to people who do. If it was only that fucking easy a thing to fix.

    Happy to see you posting again IAS.

    Hey Jeremiah, I hope you are happy and I hope life outside of athletic stuff is going well for you.

    Thanks for helping me get into fighting fire as a naive 22 year old kid. I'm now in my late 30s and have been dealing with some health issues for the past 1.5 years. Getting older is rough.

    You're a great dude and I miss your writing. Please look me up next time you are in the Tetons, either for skiing or sightseeing or whatever. Thanks for all of your help along the way.

    This totally cracks me up. Ages ago, maybe 30 years), my friend’s girlfriend, (who never works out), was yapping to me after one of my assorted many injuries. “Oh, you should do yoga!” I’m like, “Yeah…I’ve done lots of fancy stretching”, (yoga). “Oh, it’s different than stretching.” She even knew I was a gymnast.
    Then I started ranting about if had time after my couple hour rides, or weightlifting or whatever the hell else I was doing, backcountry skiing, etc.
    I have no idea what she’s doing these days. Prolly hot box, hot stone, SUP yoga on a pickle ball court.
    Well maybe I'm the faggot America
    I'm not a part of a redneck agenda

    Thx fellas. I had a clinical psychologist strongly reccomend some distance from ski media/social world, because at times it had become gut wrenching unresolvable fomo.

    This spring I was beginning to feel more physically solid, and decided to start bike commuting again after a few years of motorcycle and moped, and almost instantly I pulled every muscle from my knee to my shoulder and eventually ended up in the hospital with the worst spinal nerve pain imaginable, and 5 weeks off work, walking with a cane, etc.
    It reminded me of a few years ago when I finally felt like my right shoulder was ok enough to paddle, and I called my surfing buddy and told him while I was driving to the ski hill, and 30 minutes later I had hooked a tip on tracked-up refrozen and destroyed my left shoulder.

    I dunno, I am not dead yet, just deteriorating. It’s ok, circle of life.

    ^^^ FYI, either we die before facing physical decline or we don't.

    That is everyone of us.

    Living to a ripe old age ain't for pussies.

    Hang in there and if you don't want to suffer from FOMO and avoid the shithole, at least check in once in a while like you just did. Your presence is missed.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    .
    Clearly, this shrink has no experience or understanding of teh trgz.

    I think it’s importanter to find new interests to replace the ones you’ve aged out of but I don’t think the way to get past fomo is avoidance.

    I feel ya on the injuries. But youre still a great writer. It’s a gift i hope you keep using
