    Middle of the night UQ test...ABORT!

    I hiked back into Mammoth Cave National Park for a cold weather UQ test.
    I recently had a bicep detach in my right arm and have a doc's apptmnt today. Anyhow, I got to my campsite, got a fire started then hung my hammock.
    After supper and into the evening, I went to gather some firewood. These sites get hit pretty hard so you have to look around. I found a pretty good size dead tree nearby and started to drag it. I noticed my bicep got used a bit too much but didn't bother me.
    After while when I decided to go to sleep, I got snuggled in to my new Leighlo UQ. At first I was real comfy, still need a better sleeping bag for my TQ (it's on it's way) and dozed off.
    Not really sure how much I slept, but it wasn't more than half an hour or so, when I woke up to terrible cramping in my arm.
    I tried dealing with it but it was one of those instances in which nothing seems to help.
    I ended up tearing down camp and hiked back to my truck at 1:30. My wife about shot me when I came thru the frontdoor at 3 am.

    Not sure when I get to further my testing. Looks like my new down sleeping bag will be here later this week but I don't know if I'll be able to try it out.

    Oh well, life goes on.

    Too much too fast sounds like to me... I have the same problem when I had my shoulder done... Tried to shot put a pumpkin while still doing ny PT and off from work... With my wife their egging me on... Yeah that hurt for two days after that instance...

    On the other hand I'm glad you didn't get shot, but glad your wife was ready to keep someone from breaking in the house... Wish I could get my wife on that page...

    Sorry to hear about your pains. I know what you mean about trying to do to much to soon.
    Look at the bright side, at least on the next trip you get to test the new sleeping bag too.

    She was freaked out cause we only use the backdoor for comin and goin. I only took my truck key hiking with me and had to resort to using the front door key I had hidden.
