Hello, world!

I am a busy doctoral student, full time adminstrator at a college, and artist. I have discovered that as I devote more time to my studies and career, the more sedentary I have become. I do not want to sacrifice one for the other and I am ready to find balance in my life.

Dear Amy,

Thanks for reading my laboriously long “Lost Blog: Great Outdoors Part 2 – Disaster Strikes”. Out of necessity, I have become an expert on first-aid kits. I am a regular customer of REI and firstaidmart.com

I add additional BZK antiseptic towelettes to my various kits. I make sure the scissors are high quality. If not, I replace them with a good pair. I add a short blade folding knife and a tube of triple antibiotic ointment. Often the surgical tape and bandages that come in first-aid kits are small and don’t stick well. I test this stuff and replace when required.

Most people don’t need first-aid that often, but when you need first-aid, you want a good kit. My knee wound was horrible and deep. I get squeamish just thinking about it. I lost a lot of blood. I think without proper first-aid, it may have been Sayonara. My lower quads and knee looked like they had been blasted from inside by a small explosive. I actually tried to take a photo of the wound back at camp. But I couldn’t hold the camera steady enough with my shaking hands to get a good selfie shot of my leg. I was way too self-conscious to ask someone to take the shot. I then tried to re-dress the wound myself because I unwrapped bandages to try to get a photo of my leg in my tent. A made a mess of it and got blood all over the inside of my tent. I took this little chapter out of my blog because the blog was too long with just the necessary story elements.

I have Lost Chapters of my Great Outdoors lost blogs. The whole story is small book!

Since you lived in Sedona, Arizona, which is on the Colorado Plateau, you have a good idea of the topography of Southeastern Utah. The Moab area is big draw for mountain bikers, as is the Fruita/Monument area in Western Colorado. The topography is quite variable on the Colorado Plateau but is always spectacular.

Thanks, Bruce

Hi Amy,

I saw your new profile picture. Is it okay to say you are looking hot?

Thanks for the hug....just gently right now. LOL I am such a klutz! Upsets me that I'm not able to do everything right now because of my own stupidity. I best be feeling great by January 10 - that is the one year anniversary of my perforated colon and resulting surgery. I plan to run and be very active that day to celebrate a full year surgery-free.

How's the shoe/blister situation?

Awwee! Thank you so much for the goodie and sweet, sweet note. It warmed me inside and topped off a very nice Christmas. Hoping you had a wonderful day yesterday also. Bummer about the continuing blisters. Hoping you get it figured out soon!
