lol thanks! and no it will not be done by the dunes.

Since January I have been having issues with my wrist, well now I need surgery, which is next week. It will be in a cast for 2 months. I have so much tube work to do and welding its not even funny. Not sure how I can do that with a cast. So I continue to wait. :)

Hopefully you and the truck are up to a trip late summer or fall to the dunes. I would like to go again in august and/or sept/octish

Thats the plan, maybe August?

I broke my Scaphoid in my wrist which is the most important bone in that part of your wrist. It is a non-union break which means it wont heal on its own. they are taking a bone graft from my hip and injecting it in that bone then using a screw to hold it together. Cast for 2 months. Should be a blast.

basically if i dont get this fixed my left hand will be useless in a few years and not repairable with current technology. I work for a medical device manufacturer, we also are partial owners of a hand specialist company so I had some doctors which are nationally known look at my wrist, and this is my best and really only option. I broke it in January, its been painful since, should have had it looked at earlier.

yeah hope all goes well, wrist is always taken for granted, you loose motion or gets lots of pain in that and you are not having good times. I have been dealing with a stress fracture in mine for a couple years from weight lifting that I didnt do anyhting with and paying for it. hope to see you end of summer then!
