Since last checking in with you a lot has happened! My adventure continued from Mt. Hood to Portland, OR. I had a great time getting to explore Portland with my aunt and uncle as well as heading to the Pacific Coast for a bike ride before making the trek up to Whistler, BC. Whistler as a place is one of the most extraordinary places I've ever been in my life. It is an absolute outdoorsman's paradise with tons of activities like biking, hiking, and water sports in addition to the glacier skiing that runs until about mid July. Unfortunately towards the end of my stay in Whistler, I had a somewhat comical looking fall that resulted in me lacerating my kidney and a small part of my spleen. I had to be airlifted to Vancouver General Hospital because the situation seemed relatively severe at the time, but I only required monitoring after it was concluded that my bleeding had slowed and eventually stabilized relatively quickly. It wasn't a great end to the trip, but I could have been in significantly worse condition and had a much longer road to recovery had things not gone as mildly as they did. My sister and girlfriend who had originally planned on flying out to visit family and do the road trip back with me came and picked me up in the hospital after my four day stay and drove me to Portland, OR, where my gracious aunt and uncle harbored us and then brought me to the airport to fly home. I wanted to make the trip back with the girls, but my physical condition put me in a massive amount of pain and didn't make the trip very feasible for me. They still enjoyed the trip back, and I was more than happy to get the rest I needed to get better. The relatively short road to recovery for me was still difficult nonetheless, mainly due to me feeling relatively physically able to move, but finding pain when I actually attempted doing simple tasks in the initial weeks. I'm grateful to be feeling better and I am now cleared to get back to doing physical conditioning and most other normal activities, and will be good to get back on snow in a couple months time. All in all, I had a great trip despite the complications at the end and I'm happy to have had the experience and very happy to be getting back to work.
