So I am back in Corvallis. My couple of months in Jackson was so incredible. I think I came away in the best physical shape of my entire life. I think these days, I am one of the best versions of myself that has existed. As a kind of capstone on my Jackson stay, I rode my bike up to the top of the Teton Pass. It took me about 2 hours from Jackson and I gained around 3200 feet in about 15 miles, or so. I never did run all the way to the top of Snow King, but I did make a traverse around the boulder wall, which was another one of my summer goals. I think I left with a jump-started desire for outdoor adventure, and reassurance that I am capable of taking that kind of stuff on.
Part IX: Corvallis again
I made it back to Corvallis in time to dress like Charlie for Halloween. It’s important to carry on traditions. Other than that, I don’t have much of an agenda here. I was riding my bike home the other night and went around a corner too fast and hit a pile of wet leaves, and my bike slid out from under me, and I landed on my wrist pretty hard. I couldn’t move it yesterday, so I went to get it x-rayed. Luckily it’s not broken, and even after a day I feel a huge improvement (I am sort of typing today), but its still pretty bad. I think it will bruise up, and put a bit of a delay in my new bass project. I have 5 tunes done now. Not much else happening, I have been working a bit on my Python project, and continuing to do problems out of Munkres. I have an idea for a new music entry I want to make. Maybe that will happen today.
