    Leawood, hi to your dachshund nerfball from the Crewekiss

    Short, and flat will be the strategy near term.  Great to be vertical, not horizontal.

    And cruising the place is flat and short! - 2 weeks until the irrigation goes to bed for winter, the upper rails and gates open for the Elk, shifting fire wood onto the decks and revving up all 4 stoves!  Winter is the best seasonwink

    Great to see you back out and about Watt! kiss that must of been quite a scare, have you regained most of your proprioception back in your feet yet after the decompressive surgery? hope the recovery is speedy wink


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    Ferrari's Head of Customer Care North and South America rang.  My detailer found a 8" rubber vortex generator falling off at 200 miles under the passenger.

    F SLC ordered it and lost it a month past and I bitched in the survey aND here's HQ US gonna send me the [dealer 5 hours away] part, a nice touch-- Ferrari carescool

    Sounds like Roma is selling!  It should, such a triumphant delivery, I really love it.

    IMG_0380.jpeg

    I was happy to find today, I could get in the car, frozen neck and spine, so maybe it's not to bed for winter, I'll do minor local runs, and not included in my forbidden activities list is 150 mph ++ runs - the surgeon says crashing at speed will end it anyway, neck not determinantsmiley

    Insight into Roma mystique- I love it so, almost ready to run N Rockies to the Hotel Bel Air just for the joy of it.

    Thanks Carlos.

    Net/net the myelopathy took say 75% of my natural balance, so I stagger like a drunk much of the time, but the gyrotonic body mechanic lady I have - has put a dent in it already!  Recovery 2 years, then surgeon says he might be able to add flex and safety to my c1-c2 with synthetic discs and vertebra - 20 hours of surgery, but the fall jammed and broke numerous neck vertebra and blew 2 discs so for now he had to stabilize and let heal for 2 years.

    The key forbidden activity is super high, super steep Home Country hiking as all that August damage was done falling in these 2.5' high flat rocks:

    IMG_0280.jpeg

    The potential energy converted to impact energy if I fall/launch down slope up here at 45 degree angle of repose, surgeon says either permanent paralysis/lung machine or death only outcomes.  And the myelopathy guarantees I will fall.

    Swan dive up here not recommended!

    So no more of this for 3 years at least, but life is good.

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    I only understand half of what you write Watt, but I understand the scares of living with a delicate neck/spinal column. For me that was only temporary, but I remember how frightening it canp be. Having a surgeon who is a good communicator helps. Listen to your therapeuts say and try to keep as fit/flexible as you can without putting yourself in danger. You WILL get out on those trails again, just not this year. Hang in there Watt!

    Wow, didn't realize the damage was so high up, that's pretty serious, thank goodness you are doing so well considering, could have been much worse, serious damage above C3 could mean complete respiratory insuficiency at the time no

    We tend to associate balance to the inner ear vesicular function but in these cervical lesions balance is most commonly and easily affected because the nerve fibers in the spinal cord carrying the same functions are arranged in bundles called tracts running along the spinal cord, kind of like wiring or cable harnesses, because they travel up to or come down from the same areas in the brain responsible for integrating those functions, and the neurons carrying the sense of proprioception (the sensory perception of the position and movement of the different parts of the body) are the ones that run along the outermost part of the spinal cord. 

    So when you "pinch" or compress the spinal cord at the cervical level from the outside inwards (cervical myelopathy) either from a traumatic fracture or from a slow stenosis from cervical joint degeneration, the first fibers to be affected are those carrying proprioception, and of these, the outermost of the bundle are those coming from the feet specifically, and the further up the body the come from, the most inside and protected they are in the bundle so they less likely to be affected. If the damage is more severe and deeper then you start to affect other functions, the most lethal is the innervation to the muscles of breathing for obvious reasons.

    So in essence, if the damage is not too deep, what you loose is the ability to "sense" the position of your feet and how they are moving (while still having motor function and other sensory input), making balance on them very difficult and having to widen your gate for more stability and look down to help awareness of them with your vision. It's interesting how no one ever talks about proprioception as one of the senses like smell or touch, and it's such an important one.

    That must of been quite a scary in moment, good to see you are in great hands and with patience making a fair recovery in time, keep the beautiful photos coming but be careful! wink


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    Yes, the only level still unfused is C1-C2, so I'm down to the end, as my surgeon understated: "you can't afford another fall".  No sh.t!

    The Crewe current and past will carry me

    Beautiful country.  A trip to Colorado is in order to see the fall colors. 


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    As the narcotics ebbed away, and the reality that every minute left needs to be lived to the full, some truths became evident:

    1. The Roma gets parked October-May due to winter
    2. The Crewe does not fit comfortably in. the Roma
    3. Goal:  Achieve the ability to Hammer Down with the Crewe so's not to lose a minute together as the Raptor is not much fun on the highway.

    These issues can be addressed!!!
