    Thanks you for the welcome!

    Originally from Bethel (just up the road from you). After college lived in Cheshire, Granby, and Niantic.

    Last climb in CT was to the Mount Frissell highpoint and the Tri-State marker. October 31, 1989.
    Why did I climb the mountain? Because I was there.

    Mak, welcome to the forum. For some reason I did not see it in the beginning either. It is a great to come visit each day.

    Joey, I missed seeing your loop pictures till just now. Looks like you had a nice day and hope you are getting stronger.

    Welcome to the forums fellow nutmegger! I too have to admit to also not seeing the forums link at first.
    When you're chewing on life's gristle
    Don't grumble, give a whistle
    And this'll help things turn out for the best. And always look on the bright side of life.

    The ForumAdmin ID is the first one set up and it joined on April 20, 2006.

    I went to http://www.mountwashington.org/forums/member.php?u=1 to find out.

    I joined the forums in Jan. 2007 which means I went to the MWO website for almost 8 mos before I discovered the forums. That's sad.

    It was 5 months for me. Maybe this is highlighting a need for a design change on the MWO site. How can we highlight the forum link - or help folks learn about the forums?

    I remember when I first found the forum feeling sad I had missed out on it all.

    Maybe make it bigger or change the color of the text. Even giving it it's own spot instead of up there with the drop down links.

    Default I Feel Your Pain

    Joe I feel your pain. I've had 3 Major shoulder surgery's in the last 4 years. Upper proximinal humorus fracture. I feel in a weired way and don't you know my shoulder snaped in the worst place it could be.
    First I was told I would be back in the mountains in 6 weeks. YA right. Since then I've had a plate w/8 screws 4 of which snaped. So another doctor puts in 2 rods, Too loose, total failure and now I have a new toy made by a Doctor Jessie Jupiter. What a name hey. It's called a blade plate. It's a upside down L they insert into the ball then screw in the bottom part.

    As you can probably guess I know pain. Do yourself a favor and try and get to the point ware you need no pain killers. Including over the counter drugs.
    The cut ingredients in the perscription drugs are whats in Tylonol and Advile.
    These are the very drugs that will cause stomach bleeding.
    Another thing is don't let your PT person push you. I suspect thats how my 4 screws broke. Having never broken anything before. I sucked up the pain because thats what everyone said to do. Bull S***!

    What I do now is ride a stationary bike 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour in the PM. The key is to keep the blood flowing. It's all about keeping oxygen flow the area. Move, Move, Move but don't push the weights.

    I did some stupid things. Like 3 day hikes with a 40 LBS pack and skiing. Skiing groomers is OK but bumps and powder are a killer.

    Well just wanted to let you know your not alone

    OH and work whats that ? My work starts in my signatures below. Its tough going from a builder to a web head.

    Take it slow and keep that blood flowing
