Ride #1: The Break-up
The love affair with Joby is over. This was my third gorillapod, and it was allegedly their new, beefier model. This one lasted one month and nine days. My first one lasted nine months and the second gorillapod not even one. The difference this time, as you can see in the photos, I was not lucky enough to catch my camera. I was less than thrilled to test Olympus’ claim of the 790SW being shockproof from 5 feet, but it is still taking pictures. Joby tried, but three strikes and you’re out.
All that happened on my way to physical therapy. Apparently, there was a little setback to the bad shoulder, and the new bad shoulder after my crashes last week. Just a slight delay in my complete recovery plan. My poor camera could probably use a little PT, too.
Distance: 7.0 miles
Temperature: 37˚, the full fingered gloves would have been a better option
Ride category: PT appointment and turning my camera into a crash test dummy.
