It's even better than you remember! Larry, we did a self-shuttle and left a car at Spooner Lake before heading to Tahoe Meadows.francois said:I haven't been there in at least 4 years. Welcome back and thanks for the reminder.
Great pix and RR, Wherewolf.rwdbkr said:Awesome pics! :thumbsup: Makes me want to get up there too. Anyone doing some rides up there from Wednesday on next week (7/14-16) that wouldn't mind some company tagging along? Have'nt ridden there yet but would like to go with someone familiar with the trails. Apologies for the hijack.....
come on j-c, let's get up there!!zorg said:Great news. I still haven't ridden this trail. Looks so nice though
since you seem to be feeling decent these days from what i saw and from what you did at tahoe, can't you wait a month or two and keep riding or do they want you to get it done asap?Wherewolf said:No, only been five working days since I saw the doc. I'm hopping not to hear for a few weeks so my biking isn't spoiled for the summer.
Don't know, I'll ask when they call to schedule. I presume it would be up to me. They only do them one day a month so I've probably already missed for July.cohenfive said:since you seem to be feeling decent these days from what i saw and from what you did at tahoe, can't you wait a month or two and keep riding or do they want you to get it done asap?
I hope to be on to something bigger by then, perhaps the 40 miler, Mt. Rose to BurgerKingsburycohenfive said:bill (and j-c) and steve, how about august 7??? i'm on vaca starting the following weekend for the rest of august....
They consult with you where to put it, but it seems most are put kind of in the side/abdomen. Very restricted activity for 4 - 6 weeks to allow scar tissue to fix the wires in place. While wearing the temporary unit you are supposed to turn it off before any major "positional changes" or you get a bit of a shock from the wires shifting. Even a good cough gave me a bit of a shock, and I got them on every bump while biking with it. So I'm trying to bike as much as possible before it goes in.TahoeBC said:So is the device gonna be implanted in your back, if so that will probably put you out of commission for awhile, you certainly don't want to take a fall and land on it for a good while, maybe put it off till fall if the pain is not to intense right now
