Any one hear from Lar's lately? How's the rehab going.
Also Knee recon people, Shoulder rehabs.. How are you all doing?

Gravity is doing ok. More on that at a later time...

I get to talk to Lars about once a month. Lars is doing fine now but he initially had a problem with an infection. He has since bounced back from that and has been in rehab for about a month now. He claims that he will be ready for the new season and is anxiously awaiting the announcement of the next "Gathering of the Bears".

He has been devoting much of his time to family, rehab and work. I hope to see him in June when a group of Mtn. bike riders I hang with go to WNY to ride the hills around Holiday Valley.

I also have it on good authority that he has been checking the threads.

Had my shoulder reconstruction done May 9. Like Bob Barnes, my doc doesn't want me to use it until the tendon reattaches to the arm. I have been doing some range of motion exercises though and its fun when you get to the limits - OW!

At least I've been able to get on my bicyle trainer and use the Nordic Track to keep my aerobic fitness up.

Haven't missed the shenanigans here except for a couple of days after the operation. Don't think it's worth wasting a lot of time on some opinionated closeminded types. I couldn't add anything that hasn't been expressed anyway.

Thanks for the inquiry about us wounded, we all appreciate it.

Best regards,

Mikla is recovering fine from his knee thing. Skied with him last week. His knee didn't bother him too badly, but the legs were tired. Albeit, he skied with perfection; great balance and form. Now... if I could only get him to do teh "deer" thingy!

Great to hear from everyone. glad to hear most of the rehab is going good.
Spring will soon be summer and then the yearning for snow will start.

In the mean time it's been very entertaining reading about about the "new breeze" in ski technique.
Take care all.

Yes, Lars is still alive! Hello all my old friends. I'm doin alright but still not back to my regular self yet. Still can't press 15 lbs. over my head yet with my right arm, but the therapist and Dr. say it's comming along fine. Just fast not enough for me. Enough of that. How the hell are all of you bears doing? Although I've emailed and received email from some of you, I still miss all you people. I have been keeping up on the posting from time to time, just to see how things are going. Alot of newbies, wow! That's good, change is good.I'm glad to see that things seem to be normal at the forum. That Gonzo still rules, the knowledge still flows from Pierre, Bob Barnes, Oboe, Ott and all. Don't feel slighted if I didn't mention your name. Just forgetful sometimes. Anyhow, I'm alive and kicking you Bears. I haven't forgotten you. Keep the emails comming. I will make a point to post once in a while. To everyone who met at Tahoe, It was awesome. I vote for Fernie. After all, I think it was my idea to go there. Haha! I am getting psyched for next season. Thinking about some new equipment already. Rossignol still rules in my book. Chubbs for fatties, yes I know Pierre, but they are so fun. Later Bears.

If it holds snow-It can be skied!

As jyarddog said, my knee is doing ok. Skied with him last weekend at Timberline (don't know where the hell he gets the "Albeit, he skied with perfection..." comment from) but the statement about tired legs was accurate. Sheesh, six weeks away and my legs go to hell on me... oh, well...
Still can't get down on my knees to pray, plant or pull weeds, but am now able to crouch down. Knee is doing MUCH better.

Good to hear from Lars again... I was beginning to wonder if all the SPCA (PMTS) stuff chased him away.

The rest of you walking (or not) wounded, good luck and keep up the PT!

where I get that comment from is ... he's a very fine skier, hurt or not... so there! Good form, smooth transition from turn to turn. Good 'people' to ski with. Gives me a hard time just to see me squirm. He can make a 4 hour road trip in 10 minutes if there's skiing on the other end.
