I leave in a few days for the Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City, my 34th stint in the First Aid Station. After thousands of OR patients, most of them non-serious, I know what I'll see: People forgetting some of the basics of a healthy life. They'll wear pretty shoes that rub them the wrong way, they'll dehydrate, they'll fail to get enough rest, and they'll eat way too much and/or something strange to their digestive systems. But, on the other helping hand, it's sort of like job security for me.
I'll be signing free copies of my new book (Knots You Need, totally non-medical) on Aug 8 at 4PM and Aug 9 at 5PM. If you can't drop by, you can always order (and pay for) a copy (www.globepequot.com), and if you do, I thank you.
