Ouch! I stubbed my brain…

Dan Mitchell, in his blog Dan’s Outside, describes an incident in which, late at night, he stumbled around the house in the dark and smacked his pinky toe on the furniture. Sure — we’ve all done it, right? But right before a 5-day backpack trip?

Yep, I did the same exact thing once. Only it was my left clavicle that got broken. And I kept right on riding, despite my twisted (choose at least one) collarbone/mountain bike/brain/aversion to visiting doctors’ offices.

When you’ve got plans to ride, hike, or wrestle with alligators, it’s all too human that we are *sorely* tempted to keep those plans.
