I hope you pulverized that rock 'cause it deserves to be blasted into dust. Heal fast.

I'm glad that all you did was hurt the ankle... It sounds like it could have been fare worse. Here's hoping for a strong recovery, because it looks like it's gonna be a high water year on the rivers!

Dave, WAY TO GO BIG even at work. A friggin 10 foot launch off the side of a building would have been sick to watch. Breaking your heel sucks but sounds like you had worse things that coulda happened....
I thought I broke my friggin leg last week in the terrain park in Jackson. Just ripped my toe nail off.
Check your PM
Go Dawgs!!!

Bummer Dave!

I have made a call to the OB delivery driver- he will be coming by the house later.

Heal up and come paddle the Upper A with some real water this year!

Sorry to hear that Dave. Heal up well. Hopefully you can find a good orthopedic surgeon.

I sat out a winter with a broken arm a couple of years ago, and it sucks. When spring rolls around life will be all good though!

My landlord is a hotshot sports orthopedic doc who gave me a great recommendation for the best doc to go to on my insurance when I got fixed up. If you are looking for ortho recommendations give me a shout.

That's rough - injuries are a bitch. Good luck healing up.

As for docs, for what it's worth (I can't give that informed of a rec), but there's a guy in Louisville named Daniel Ocel who's a foot & ankle specialist. He actually assisted with a surgery I had (not foot/ankle) and as far as I can tell they didn't screw (no pun intended) it up. Some professional rugby guy who had a full resume of injuries seemed to be pretty high on him. Could be worth checking out if you're looking for alternatives.
