We have a nice collection of braces you can borrow if need be. Hoping it’s not busted.

xrays on Wednesday (no free time today). I skipped morning ride because too painful. but pain is less than yesterday so i doubt it is busted and even it is once in a cast or brace it should be fine to paddle and ride. I'm not missing Wilderness Traverse. Though it is my map and compass carrying hand so maybe i'll have to learn to carry my compass around my neck like the rest of the AR gang. NOT.

We'll strap a hook on your arm if necessary. Maybe a nice high-tech attachment for a paddle and handlebar clip-in, with a built-in compass.

Take better care of yourself! And that goes double for Mr. and Mrs. Ghoslow!

Ouch! Hope it isn't really broken.

Just had my final x-ray for a broken wrist. I didn't think it was broken, either. But read that you can't tell without an x-ray. X-ray said non-displaced fracture. There was a possible displaced little one as well that they didn't care about. The splint helped immensely.

I road my bike when I still thought it was a sprain--not fun. Continued to ride with the splint, but couldn't tolerate hills.

Good luck.
