May 2019   I had a phenomenal trip to New Zealand in February and March – Absolutely some of the best backpacking and hiking I’ve ever done in my life!!  There is so much more I still want to see and explore there, I wish I could get on a plane and go back.  Click on the New Zealand 2019 page to the right for photos.

This year I’ll be re-visiting the Redwoods in northern California as well as the Eagle Cap area of eastern Oregon, and I’ll do more exploring and traveling with my Hiker trailer (www.hikertrailers.com).  Of course, always more hiking around Mt. Rainier, my home base 🙂  Here’s to a happy and adventurous 2019!!!

    Awesome. Love checking maybe twice a year. Meet you on the knee forum you are inspirational.

      Thanks Dennis! I’m so fortunate that I’ve been able to bounce back from eight knee surgeries and still keep hiking and backpacking and snow-shoeing.

        My time has come. TTT MPFL and LPFL (Maybe) Dr. Robert A. Teitge, MD Feb 2nd. Strange my knees have been feeling good this winter. My wife thinks it is trying to escape. I never had a problem with frequent dislocation. Just really bad pain for long periods of sitting and exercise induced pain. Hoping for the best. I know you had doubts when you went on good hikes before. How are they now?

      I’ve heard good things about Dr. Teitge 🙂 I had TTT and lateral release, but no MPFL or LPFL. The rehab was long and hard, but it gave me my life back and I’m doing things now that I never thought I’d be able to do. Just played racquetball this morning, and could NEVER have done that before. While you’re in rehab, make a list of the things that you want to do that would have been too painful before, and focus on those. It’ll help you get through all those PT appointments and give you some good goals to focus on. Good luck!
