Back home again. Just bruises. Road up into the mountains yesterday. It was cold in the canyons. Wet roads. Some icing. But I was being careful. But when I was back down in the plains, I was crossing the railroad tracks. I thought they were wet. But they had iced over. I was going slow but still hit hard. Rode five miles home. Then the pain got worse. So I decided I shoud have it checked out. So no riding for about a week. Bummer. I was planning on riding higher in the mountains today. The doctor let me go home last night. I told him I was hungry. Either feed me a steak or give me my discharge papers. He said steak was too expensive and sent me home.
