    Default Break a leg?

    Pretty sure I have no luck at all...unless it's bad! A week ago this past Saturday about a dozen of my local riding friends were out putting on a few miles checking out a semi local restaurant. Ended up at a local fundraiser to listen to the band for a while. A nice end to a decent day, until it was time to leave. We all stopped at the porta poties on the way out. I miss judged the distance to the ground and rolled my ankle.it hurt like dickens, didn't think it was anything more than a sprain, x-rays proved that wrong the next day. Managed to break both the tib and fib in my right ankle. I have been flat on my back for a week with my leg elevated. Getting it pinned and plated tomorrow morning. Not exactly how I expected to spend the first half of my summer.
    I hope to be healed enough to ride the bike to the Green Mountain Rally in September! Time will tell.
    I'll post something more tomorrow.

    Dang that sucks. These days I find I can roll my ankle on, well, just about any surface imperfection, if I hit it right.
    Feel better, and good luck tomorrow.
