This was the last day of 2016, but my first ride in over a month. In the latter part of November a fuel container exploded next to me lighting me up. For the most part I was miraculously OK. I did have severe burns to my left hand, minor burns to my face, left side and right hand. Plus a few of my favorite outdoor jacket layers were charcoal. The good part is that I'm alive, I didn't have to go to a burn center, or need anything drastic. But my left hand was a mess.
A month later and I can finally ride. My hand is sensitive to cold, but otherwise nearly new except for the very pink color.
I'm so happy that we have snow (and lots of it) and that I could end the year Fat!
