I have been inactive for several months in my 85th year with three problems I’ll tell you about:
1. On May 11th on an exploratory trip to be able to report to you the accessibility conditions I took THE WORST FALL OF MY LIFE THAT SHOULD HAVE KILLED ME. Let me describe it for the survival lessons it teaches: “I decided for the report on my website I should include pictures of a wildflower in bloom at the lower elevations. I noticed some in bloom up a steep slope and pulled off the road. I’d been behind the wheel for an hour or so and as I started up the slope I felt very unsteady with awful balance. I even strangely thought, “Wow, I could use a hiking stick or trekking pole!” That I have resisted all these years. But, I finally got up to the flower, and on the uneven steep slope with rocks and sagebrush, each time I’d try and focus I would lose my balance, so sat down to get the picture.
Then I started down, but completely forgetting what I have advised going down a steep slope–” ALWAYS LEAN INTO THE MOUNTAIN…because if you fall the OTHER WAY, YOU’RE MOST LIKELY DEAD!” See pages 563-564. All of a sudden I began losing my balance–one of the first things you begin to lose as you get older. I did my darndest with me feet to keep up with my body but couldn’t do it as all was happening so quickly and all of a sudden I went head over heels flying downward, apparently hitting the rocks a time or two I determined afterwards seeing the deep dirt and green scuff marks on the back of my shirt, then somehow quite miraculously my body got twisted around in the air before I hit the bottom so I landed with a thud on my back horizontally with the shock evenly distributed the length of my body. If I had of hit on any angle I would for sure have broke something. I laid there stunned thinking, “For sure there’s got to be multiple fractures somewhere!” I carefully moved one leg, then the other. Then each arm. I raised my head just a little, and then more. By then I was feeling warm blood on the back of my head. My left arm shirt sleeve was soaked with blood. I carefully sat up, and slowly got to my feet, and noticed nearby my Nikon camera with Zoom lens that separate from me somehow had come down the steep hill with me, dirty with dust, but back in the car I checked it out, and it too had survived without breaking anything. My first thought, I stupidly had violated the rule and NOT LEANED INTO THE MOUNTAIN. The second thing that came to mind: VERY LIKELY MY BACKPACKING DAYS ARE OVER WITH, BUT I WAS ALIVE!
IMPORTANT NOTE: As indicated in the story of my fall, BALANCE is one of the first things we lose as we get older, and I’m convinced that some of those who have been lost in the Uintas and never found, very possibly–in the numerous dangerous places in the Uintas have just simply lost their balance as happened to me, and fallen into a ravine, or out of sight area, and are never found. SO PLEASE….BE VERY AWARE AND TAKE SPECIAL CAUTION, especially in the first few days on a trip–until you get your “mountain legs working,” & IN DANGEROUS PLACES…..AND IF YOUR BALANCE IS LESS THAN NORMAL, I GUESS YOU’LL HAVE TO USE TREKKING POLES.
2. Consequently my back problems that were already bad–having had two surgeries with titanium appliances in my lower back, but now worse, with discs worn out and missing in my mid back, my spinal chord being pinched in those locations and the Doctors feel at my age and the nature of the problems its too dangerous to repair with surgery. The Dr. injected something into my spine, but its doing almost NOTHING! Consequently NO MORE BACKPACKING, JOGGING, but I’m doing daily my 40-50 good pushups, an 8 lb. barbell in each hand while watching TV, and walking every day at the American Fork Amphitheater park, climbing up and down holding onto the railing, and will somehow find a way to again do “the impossible,” etc.
3. I had a chance to be exposed to COVID-19, and except for my back, am in better health than others my age so I decided best build up my immunity now, so….
“BRING IT ON WHILE STILL HEALTHY.” When my blood pressure indicated something was going south in my body I started the CURATIVE LEVEL OF MY WELLNESS FORMULA,
The next day the blood pressure was solved, then had one day later with a temperature of 99.1 F, then one day at 99.9 then always normal. No body pains nor breathing problems, only daily headaches and my taste turned on end for three weeks with even my favorite foods and drinks being NASTY! But mostly my life continued normally, the normal flu–had years ago before discovering the WELLNESS FORMULA, was many times more miserable & dangerous. YOU CAN HAVE THE WELLNESS FORMULA by buying my book, it being explained in Appendix 5 in the article entitled “THE ANTI-AGING CHALLENGE,” on page 635-636, along with solutions to most problems in the 55 page article, and my survival stories sprinkled throughout the book that can SAVE YOUR LIFE!
