One month since the end of the East Coast ride. Time does, indeed, go fast. Seems like just yesterday we were cruising along the outer banks. Anyway time to moves on. On the shoulder issue. Torn rotator was not able to be repaired so I will rehab it and if I'm not satisfied with the results they will replace the entire shoulder joint. As the doc said "your shoulder is shot". I wondered if that is proper "doctor speak" but what the heck. The good news is that I am still able to ride and while I am spending time at the rec center on the stationary bike I was able to go outside a few times since I've been back. I even tried the recumbent stationary bike but didn't like it much so back to the upright. Trying to decide when my next big adventure will be but it won't be for awhile. I'm still intrigued by the Great Alaskan highway and that might still be in the future. For now, its winter biking inside.
Also, when asked which was the better ride, cross country or east coast, I explained they were both unique with advantages and disadvandates to both. So, it is difficult to compare them. Enough for now but updates soon.
