Scary Day... Dislocated Knee Ouch
I was out flying today (great DS grove) and had to head down for a retrive. My second step my left knee turned sideways and pop out of joint. I fell down adn all the usual stuff but then I realized that I was about 1 mile from my pickup and 450' up a rock cliff. Needless to say I made it back. The only thing that saved me was a shovel that I hauled up to the slope for no reason what so ever.
I taped my knee up( bi directional is great) and started to limp and crawl down. I can make the walk in about 12 min with great weather but it took me 2.5 hours to make it today. But I am home safe and sound with all my gear. Just can't hike for awhile. I feel for all of you that have been layed up in the near past.
He is a pic of my pickup from the top of the butte. Not to be macho or anything but more for me. But I need to find a way to drive to the bottom of the hill. LOL
