        Was wondering if Arndog was out in the howling winds on Lake Tahoe yesterday trying to surf those big waves with his kayak? We're getting mostly rain up here and just about the time we have enough snow on the slopes to ski I'm either off working or it has turned to rain. El Nino is good for the CA drought and bad for the Northwest snow pack. My exercise of late is getting up and going to the office to work followed by a 2 mile walk in the dark when I return home.

          RevisI did not go out the past 2 days - I was working while the storm raged. I would have liked to have seen 7-9 ft waves from the beach. Whoa. 4 days before , I did a solo overnight after paddling into the middle of the lake. It was incredibly calm.I was treated to an amazing sunset. But that would have been great to see the fury of the lake yesterday.Click image for larger version

            Not exactly a workout, but had a milestone of sorts this weekend. In my previous life - before med school and pediatrics - I was a Juilliard trained bassist. I had been slowly trying to get back to playing some since my accident, but hand tightness and spasticity made it slow going. However, things have improved and this weekend I played in public for the first time, the Messiah at Bruton Parish Church in Williamsburg.

              Who's that handsome guy with the bass? :-). Congratulations on your re-debut!

              I used to sing in that choir (well, in the Evensong choir).

                Dan F- that's fantastic. Congratulations.

                i have been riding my bicycle almost every day, about ten hours a week lately, and the weird thing is I think that it is helping my clumsy left hand gain back a little touch sensation and loosen up the spasticity. I use road bars now, and I change positions often, using touch some to locate my hands. If I did the exercises that the OTs gave me for my hands, I couldn't do them for nearly the same amount of time.

                  Dan - That qualifies as a work out for sure.. Great job...

                    Very nice pictures, Arndog. Love that you were out there catching such beautiful scenery. Would have loved to be AB again and catch a windy day windsurfing Lake Tahoe. I caught a few good days here on Lake CdA before my injury, there is something really special about windsurfing in beautiful surroundings. Most windy places aren't very pretty. DanF, that is huge progress and I agree that it qualifies as a workout. Just putting a tie on my body is a workout. I avoid those as much as possible.

                    Workouts: 1) 2.8 mile hike on Saturday with 500 foot elevation gain and 2) 4.45 mile hike on Sunday with 800 foot gain. Here are some pics:

                      Sorry about the size of these pictures. Next time I will resize them even smaller. It's hard to gauge dimensions.

                          revis - great photos especially that last diffuse lighting shot. Dan - do you have to sit higher than a standard chair to play bass or even stand? Juillard - whoa. Are you a chamber music fan by chance? If so, we have more than SCI in common. Steve - does Flagstaff have snow yet? We are mighty dry here still.

                            arndod - what kayak are you using and how do you transport your chair on the kayak



                            Comment


                              Loosecanon I use forearm crutches - which I strap to the deck. My buddy, Mark Wellman, paddles and camps but leaves his wheelchair behind at the put in. He just crawls out of the boat , and we are 'limited' to camping on a beach where we can just plop out of the boats onto a tarp and cook and hang out for the night. To do more you need to have AB friends willing to go and willing to help.

                                Thanks, arndog. My wife and I are exploring kayaking and would like to do do some island hoping. Based on your experience, is it possible to break down a chair and strap it to a kayak?
