I would like to apologize to all for the recent shitshow on another thread...When someone began making blatantly false claims concerning an injury that is gonna keep me from doing what i love to for 9 months to a year I took it rather personal. My bad.

You are great bunch of peoples, on what I feel is the best tree forum on the web, so again my apologies the the entire TB community...

I appreciate the comments folks, but I have no interesting in discussing the matter any further...Just wanted to apologize to everyone here...

If the mods want to lock this down before it too turns into another cluster-fuck, please do so...

Sitting idle is most often worst than the injury itself. I’ve been there…

Wishing you a speedy recovery!

Thanks Mark. Soon after my accident I was thinking it might be a good time to start thinking about getting out of the game while I am still relatively whole. You know, transition to the next phase of my life, and begin working on my chip-shot and my putting. Becoming a master gardener, and finally get started on that new house that I promised my wife.

Who was I kidding? Don't tell my wife, but all I can think about is smashing Firs, and when she's not looking I frequently go to Wesspur's website and see whats new in the Arb world..

The longest 4/5 months of my life was recovering from ankle fusion surgery... not accident related, genetics issue. Prior to that, I used to wish for an extended period of time off to "relax". Few things I learned about myself... during that time. When not working, I was pretty grumpy, another thing was that I enjoyed working more than sitting around, Getting back on spikes and using them, like the tool they are, was a mental hurdle for me. "Lucky" for me I had an A-hole boss that threw a removal on me my first day back. Had to trust the healing process...Also, I was almost few decades younger and equally as stubborn. Heal well. Oh yeah, I remember stradling the tub with cast for baths, That first shower was so nice, I can relate. The bag of soft goo that used to be a calve, was one of the most bothersome things.. Rest assured, Start using it again, they come back. A lot of us are looking forward to reading about your first climb back in the saddle. ,
Keep teaching and sharing in the way, only you can do.

I completely missed the afore-mentioned shitshow but it must have been a rather serious injury to keep a guy like you down, Rico. Best of luck to you for a complete recovery and a return to the trees! Cheers, Stewart

Wishing you the best in your recovery Rico. I did my fib in 2011. Similar situation but in winter conditions. It's a long recovery but I'm sure you'll be back in the saddle, even stronger than before.

Had 2 shoulder surgerys on the rt,1 on the left all within 1 year back in 2013. Had me down for a while. Took me down an ugly road. Keep talking and engaging the people around you, including the crazies on TB. Always up for a PM.

If the break is right near your ankle the bone bump left after healing may affect the fit of you boots. How would a fella know that? ;)

Heal well.

I did not see that argumentative thread and my sympathies as you seek to heal. There is no cause for vituperation during your attempt to recover if I read the situation right. This is the major defect of online communications these days; you can't see the other posters, someone (for whatever reasons) decides to make an "issue" out of something and it is very hard to defend against. I and many others have dealt with that. What is the remedy? In person, face to face discussions as the internet is plagued with strange consequences.
