no backyotomy in portland

I busted my back working in the last days of November moving heavy, and awkward things around. It wasn't even doing something awesome or really stupid, just really wrong I suppose. Potential problems could have been quitting messengering and my back losing a large amount of it's strength in the month and a half prior to said incident. It's been questioned whether or not getting hit by a car last February could have been a problem, but at this point seems unlikely. My head also seemed to have taken the fall.

Needless to say, I've been through chiropractors, acupuncturists, and now have a different chiropractor in Las Vegas I will be visiting next week. My sister has been fixed by this guy on a few occasions, so it's worth a shot since I'll be in town anyhow.

I will not be going to Bermuda/Canada with Sea Shepherd this time around since my back is a big problem, and the last thing I need is freezing cold weather and hard work. I think the last thing Sea Shepherd needs is a broken volunteer.

Against better judgement I still went up to Portland for the North American Handmade Bicycle Show. Portland is awesome, and attracted a lot of my favorite people from around the world.

and Rock Lobster's bicycle pulling bicycles!

I really didn't take many photos. I actually only took my camera in one day as I was trying to avoid the extra weight on my back. I even had Jim C. from Orange 20 carrying my bag around for a bit.
