I look a bit something like the photo above, just add 30 years. Way back in the summer of 1982 I was riding Yamaha 125 and crashed it for almost no reason breaking my Left collar bone. By today's standard I would have already had surgery to repair it, but back then they just put a brace on and said good luck.
My recent fracture isn't all that bad so in the brace I am. I get check up in about 3 weeks, so I suspect they will want me in the brace for about 6 weeks total. The one good thank about the brace is that I can get both hands on the keyboard, doing this kind a thing one handed gets old quickly. Back in 1982, a couple of weeks after that photo was taken I was riding my cousins Honda 70 three wheeler. It had an automatic transmission, only a hand brake on the right side, so not having use of my left hand didn't slow me down at all. Today I no longer have access to that little Honda nor a place to ride it, so it may take me a little longer to get back on the road. I have a recumbent bicycle and I have been a little lazy about riding it lately, so I may have to get it ready so that in a couple of weeks when I get some pain-free motion in the left arm again I will have two wheels ready.
I will also have some time to go through the video I have already taken with the GoPro HD video camera. I wasn't happy with a lot of the footage due to the camera shaking and the clattering noise coming from the camera shaking in it's housing. I also shot some footage with the camera upside down only to find out my software wouldn't let me rotate the image, so I purchased a copy Adobe Premiere Elements. I need to work at becoming proficient with it. I will return to some footage I shot about a year ago and see if Premiere Elements will let me get a final edit closer to my original vision. I must still learn that basic lesson of saving your work, I had a just over ten minute video almost ready for publication, I went through each clip trimming the time slightly on each to get the total time under the 10 minute limit. As soon as I got the time down I tried to record a short narration clip and the program crashed, off course I had not saved my work, so I'm back to the 10+ minute video, not the end of the world but none the less frustrating.
Hell is probably freezing over as I write this as I found and purchased a used Lumix ZS3( it's not a Canon??), it's all Bobskoot's fault. Maybe I will shoot some HD train videos while I'm healing.
At the least look for some videos in the near future.
