Hi: I've been a member before. Moved out of town for a while. Still often out of town but would like to join again. Engineer, school teacher.
Mrinal! Ok, bespectacled teacher. I will look for you under the Fiesta sign. I have a midnight blue Jeep Liberty and I look a lot like my pic! I'm not entirely sure on the exact best way to get to the trailhead so I've messaged Bill and Sue, or maybe you can help? No worries, we'll get there. See you soon.
And Mrinal, sorry to hear about the shoulder, and sorry to sound like such a mom, but if it's still hurting then don't go to Lava Butte if there is any boldering or scrambling, shoulders take a while to heal especially in macho guys!!!!
Mrinal, if there is room in the AZ hike and you still want to go you can always carpool with me! Bill and Sue are doing that hike and Bill is making a special arrangement for someone to take me from the springs back to the starting place so I won't challenge my shoulder,,,,so if you come you can join the "hurt shoulder" clan. Never turn down a hike because of a ride, just check and see if I'm going and you're in.
Hi there! I guess I should have known with that bad weather that the hike would get cancelled. Thanks for your inquiry on my shoulder. You know, I am in medicine and actually was in sports med/ortho for a while so when I got hurt I knew the key to a quick recovery was constant motion. So for the last 9 miles of that hike I just kept moving my shoulder all around and I am doing aggressive home physical therapy and...well, about 95% better! I am hiking AZ Hot Springs this weekend!Any plans 4u?
Mrinal how was the hike last weekend? did you get a ride without much trouble?
Mrinal....bad news. While hiking the the Grand Canyon last weekend I fell (it's fun to say I fell in the Grand Canyon and watch someone's face). NO, I didn't fall into the canyon! But was hiking down into the canyon and slipped on black ice. Medical work up not done, but looks like I have torn both the deltoid muscle and rotator cuff. Bye bye golf. And have to cxl this Sat I am so sorry. There should be others available to give you a ride. Have a great hike!!
Got your message but can't find it now...so responding here. It's all good. So far then we are three and there's always plenty who could use the ride. See you then! If you "talk" to or see anyone that needs a ride I can take in two more.
We will have much to talk about, or shall I say I have many questions for you! Fascinating. I love to study different regions of the world, different belief systems. Thank you! Perhaps someday I shall visit such a beautiful place. But I am happy today where I am.
I'll be driving you and you guest on the hike for the 17th. I can't help but comment on your place of origin, the Himalayas? REALLY? I just can't wait to hear your story and how on earth you ended up here! Look forward to meeting you!
