Thanks so much guys for helping a newby out on the trail. I had a great time. I returned without any damage! Thanks for the guiding and I'll work on that even throttle control.

A week already since we were just wrapping it up at Moab Hill? Time does fly.
How's the paw, Paulo? Break looks rough and if Cristo is still looking for stuck pics, your x-rays are them. You were stuck between a rock and a hard place - one of his sliders. Hope you are doing okay.
This was the first time back to the Hackett area for me since right before the Hayman fire having been there with the club in Jan. of '00 and '01, I think. Remembering what it used to look like and seeing the damage first hand was sobering and reminded me of the Jay Geils band song "Love Stinks". If you saw this area pre-Hayman Fire and haven't been back since then, you might find it interesting to revisit. The vistas towards the West are now quite obvious and you get a better sense of how big the Platte drainage is as can be seen in some of the good pics taken that day.
Thanks, Stan, for leading a great club run.

Hey guys, thanks for the nice words! So far I only got a fiberglass splint immobilizing my finger!
I'll see the hand specialist again tomorrow morning and we'll make a decision on wether or not to pin it and avoid healing weird or crooked!
Will let you know how it goes.

As for the run, I had a awesome time! Crash, I don't think it classifies as stuck since it took only half a second and I was walking away hurting!

That whole area is incredible and I can't imagine what it used to look like before that fire! You guys are lucky to have seen it before! I was still back in Brazil back then.
And love doesn't stink, I think love is great! I mean I know it. Those two did not experience love, they were fooling around with a messed up relationship and got what they were asking for. I know I sound harsh for some but it's the truth and it hurts sometimes!
I say that with much respect to all.

Having broken the metatarsal of the same finger on the same hand and having it pinned after a week of trying to do without the pin, I say go for the pin. It was impossible for me to keep the finger immobilized enough for it to heal properly. Good luck with whatever you decide.

My wife's aunt went through that and told me the same thing yesterday!

Just the snapping sound has been stuck in my head since that day. I have a weak stomach for that kind of stuff. It makes me woozy.

I broke that exact finger in that exact location a few years back when a high-lift jack (yeah, I know) mashed my finger between itself and a truck bumper. I know the 'ouch' - my break was clean and I had it splinted, and it's straight as an arrow now. Lots of PT to get the finger flexible again after a couple weeks in a split. Hope you heal well and quickly.

Got some new X-rays yesterday and the bone looks completely crooked so I'm going in to have the pin put in!

Going in today at 11, surgery at 1:30. Should be out of there around 4.
