      getting out of the power chair and cruising around the house in the manual whipping 360s is an excellent work out before bed

Amazing road that spans the ridge of the Blue Ridge through the park. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate. I have a good AB friend who seems to actually enjoy riding trikes who is going to ride with me.
        I would love to join you on that ride, Dan F. I used to float the Shenandoah River as a teenager, fishing upwards to 20 miles a day for smallies. Beautiful country to ride in. Sure hope you will post some pictures.

        I'm back at work full-time after a four-month sabbatical and its' kicking my butt. Still trying to stay active after 8 and 9 hour work days with travel on the horizon. Usually take a walking break at noon, a 1/4 mile walk down to the Spokane River and back.

        Last evening: Quick 10 mile ride on the e-bike yesterday late afternoon. 1 hour of peddling.
        Two evenings ago: Upper body workout at the gym, plus 15 minutes on the stationary bike and 1 mile walking on the indoor suspended track (we have a fancy, $32 million Kroc center in CdA, ID and its great when I can't get out).

              I got out on the One-Off for a couple of hours yesterday. That was my first time using chest steering since breaking six ribs at the end of June. Leaning left on the steering pad was more tentative than usual and some rocky/bumpy sections of track that are normally fast, were more cautious than normal to let my cribs in gently but it was good to be out in the woods and off the roads and I feel reassured that I can start to push to regain some fitness now.

                Hey, Revis, I feel your pain! I'm back at work part time. It's an adjustment for sure.

                After years of talking about it (thanks, Patrick!) I finally bought a new handcycle. I may not be faster, but I figure I look faster!

                  Hi All, just checking in. I'm glad you're all out triking, biking, kayaking, racing.... I love to read about your adventures. I've been kayaking some but daily life is my major fitness. I'm between contract work for a short time, so have been getting home projects done. They kick my butt more than anything. I'll probably be back at work soon. Revis, I hear you on the work front. Very hard to have energy for anything else.

                  Kudos to all of you who wring the most out of life, no matter what your situation might be!

                    I've broke all mine front & back & split my sternum………they will find their happy place, but it takes awhile.

                    The intercostal spaces hurt the worst/longest - I still have some broken ones.

                    It'll sort itself out, but it will take time & be uncomfortable at 1st = keep at it within reason!

                        Hiked the 1-mile floating boardwalk trail in the Horicon marsh. In another month, this whole area will be filled with migrating birds, all manner of ducks, geese, pelicans. This was an interesting 'trail', mostly boardwalk and an added balance challenge...but lots of fun! Can you spot the great egret in the second picture?

                          Hi everyone - Sorry I haven't posted - I am trying to hang in the AB world of ocean coastal kayaking. Taking lessons - private initially cause I thought I couldn't hang with ABs. Turns out that once in a kayak, and having done arm sports for 13 years as a gimp, I could hang with the ABs.
                          I have been kayaking in the northern california coast near Mendocino/Ft. Bragg. Trying to learn to kayak in dynamic water. It is a beautiful world out there.
                          Truly - beautiful Egret picture. I would go back to that boardwalk when all those birds arrive.

                          Question - I don't know how to post photos anymore . Do they have to be on a URL or can I still just upload one from my desktop like the old days - if someone could kindly explain that to me - thanks!

                            I uploaded the photos as attachments and they magically appeared in the post. I had to adjust the size before uploading so they wouldn't be too ginormous.

                            I will certainly go back to the boardwalk during the migration. There is also a 6.5 mile 'canoe' trail through the marsh. I'd like to kayak that, too. Migration is an almost eerie time in that area. We get a lot of dark, cloudy skies in October and the calls of the birds rise above any other noise. The two make it an other-worldly experience.

                            I'm glad you're expanding your kayak skills, Arndog. Keep us posted on how you do.

                                I'm headed to Petaluma CA next weekend to row in my first head race, the Wine Country Classic.

                                So, has anyone been formally classified in their sport? I will be classified on Saturday, and I'm getting a little frustrated by all the forms and by the need to pay for a doctor visit and a PT visit for mandatory manual muscle testing. I have no desire (or the skill/talent) to row in the Paralympics or anything like that and am not sure why all this hoop jumping in order to row recreationally. Am I just being cranky about this?
