It was pretty much all epic, I fell in love with northern New Mexico, all of Colorado was glorious, and the only somewhat disappointing region was southern Wyoming; once I hit the Tetons it was magnificent from there on.


    Thanks. It's coming along. Bones are healed, I'm just plagued with perpetual chronic pain that keeps me from doing pretty much anything, so ... looking into surgical repair to sort it out.
    Seems like a lot of incidents occur either at the start or close to the end of a trip .... imagine that on another day you would have successfully made the descent. Big bikes can be a bit overwhelming when physics is against you ... guess that is why most enduro ... dirt bikes are 400cc or less.

    I have a good friend who was ... now retired .... as most of my colleagues are at this point ... a great neurosurgeon. His comment ... which he oft repeated ... was that surgery does not take pain away ... just changes the nature of it. Unstable bones need repair .... as do fragments that are impinging on the spinal cord. However most bone pain from fractured vertebral bodies can take up to a couple of years to abate .... not good news. Vertebral cage implants are fairly new and the long term outcomes are unknown ....

    If there is a great pain clinic near you ... physiotherapy, epidural injections and TENS may afford some relief. Implantable stimulators can work but carry great risk of movement, dislodging and infection so they should be a last resort.

    The real difficulty is that the spine is involved in any movement and support without movement so that it is constantly stressed; makes it hard to find a comfortable position for any length of time.

    Hope you find relief ... pain added to the stresses of the past 12 months would be tough.

    Rocket III looks awesome ...

    How much does the moderator position pay? I should note that I go by day rates (up to 10 hours) so if I only put in a minute of moderating work in a day I would still be charging for a full day of work. I also don't work for labor only so you'll be getting a lot of nice video equipment to go with the moderating.

    So sorry Barry, can't even imagine how painful and scary that must have been out there. Glad you are alive and thankful for the amazing people who work these rescue units. Hoping for a full recovery and resolve of the chronic pain.

    Sorry to hear about your troubles Barry. Spent a lot of time in New Mexico and Bozeman in the 90s, absolutely magical. If your misadventures usually occurs that the start and end of trips, maybe start a few days later and end a few days early. Same logic I apply to dating, bowling and fisticuffs. Also I’ve always enjoyed the vibe on dvxuser, it’s been a nice respite from craziness online.
