Krankin Thru China Trip Update (9-26-2013)

So, I am down to less than 2 weeks before I embark on a trip of a lifetime – 11 days to be exact – and I am very excited, nervous, happy, scared and so many thoughts and emotions all wrapped into one. My head is already spinning and there are still many days until I fly out. I am so taken aback by all of the support from people and organizations. I have even had the pleasure of chatting with (over Skype) some of the people I will be spending a good amount of my time with in China. Looks like I will definitely be returning with great new friendships.

"Cure" for Paralysis

on Wednesday, 07 August 2013. Posted in personal, randomness, rants

Maybe it’s because I haven’t had my coffee yet, but I am SO over seeing people write all this mess about “curing” paralysis. Cure Paralysis Project, Rise Up to Cure Paralysis, Miami Project to Cure Paralysis and so on.. Yes, I know there are some diseases that can cause paralysis in us humans, but the gross majority of people past, present and I am sure future are paralyzed from DAMAGE to the spinal column, like myself.

Krankin Thru China Trip Update (9-19-2013)

This last week has been a great one. Been “present week” for me. My sponsors have gone above and beyond to set me up with the best gear. So far this week I have gotten my 65 litre pack, 2 sleeping bags, and a 2-man tent from the guys at Ledge Sports. I have gotten a new Tension Adjustable Backrest from Supracor, to replace my worn out and well used one. I have gotten a new set of coil-over shocks for my chair from Box Wheelchairs. Items from Frog Legs, Inc., Kenda Tires, and a couple others are still to come. I cannot thank my sponsors enough for how generous they have been. It is par for the course over my relationship with all of them.

DIY: Wheelchair Maintenance

on Wednesday, 07 August 2013. Posted in do it yourself

As a gearhead by day, I inherently love to “tinker” with things, and my wheelchair would be no exception. I do all my own maintenance on my wheelchairs and most of the repairs. On a wheelchair, there are really only a few items that require regular maintenance and pretty much all brands are similar, with the same fundamental parts; barring slightly different bolt sizes and bearing diameters.

Pushrim Podcast

On Friday September 13, 2013 I had the awesome privilege to do a podcast for the guys at www.PushRim.com. We sat and chatted over strudels and coffee at Mishi's Strudel Bakery & Cafe there in San Pedro, CA then headed into the studio to get mic'd up.

Feel free to modify this list to tailor it to yourself. There are many articles out there with all sorts of variations and new exercises to keep your workouts fresh so you don't get bored.
