On Feb. 15th I had a massive heart attack. They lifeflighted me to Colorado and rushed me into surgery. I’m back home now and on the road to recovery. I’ll have something posted in about a month. Thanks for your patience.–Rob

  1. Rob, I am saddened by what happened to you, but relieved that you received care and will be writing again soon. I hate imagining you sick and confined inside rather than roaming the mountains we both love. How soon will you be able to venture out, back to the streams and the subtle sings of spring. I’m thinking about you and wishing you the best.

    • I had the heart attack on the 15th, was in ICU for two days, in the cardiac ward for two days, and back home on the 19th. I started going for walks on the 20th, shooting for thirty minutes a day–it took me three tries a day for a few days, but now I can walk for about 10 min. before I have to stop and rest. I get 16 min. in the morning and 16 in the evening. I did 16 min three times a day for a couple of days but was very tired, and it didn’t feel right. When I can make it to the crossroad and back without stopping, I’ll strap on my pack and see how that goes. I think I can be ready by the time the trail heads open. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Sorry to hear that you had a heart attack, Rob…..gosh….any way, what, pray tell, are “bear boogers” (reference to your piece) ๐Ÿ™‚

    • A booger is something scary–like getting the willies. It’s a cowboy thing. You might say your horse boogered on the trail, or the the dark cave gave me the boogers. So the sentence would read, “I don’t know anybody who doesn’t get the bear willies . . .”
