sixsixone Core Saver 2011

Last year ( 2010 ) on Moab's Sovereign Trail I managed the "Mother of all Endo's"  off a 4 foot ledge, face planting myself in luckily the only bit of sand in miles.  The end result was a cracked sternum and 3 cracked ribs.

I always wear my camera fastened to my camelback  chest strap, and I landed on my face and chest, and the camera pushed directly into my sternum, cracking it along with the 3 ribs. I realized how lucky I actually … [Read more...]

I have big plans for 2011, and have decided to focus a bit more on … [Read more...]

Sovereign Trail Moab
