+zarbi&zarbibird Posted September 28, 2010 Share Posted September 28, 2010 Is it just me, or have other people sustained injuries whilst caching? We're not talking about the usual nettle stings, brambles creating geostripes on uncovered flesh etc but slightly more serious injuries. I have just recovered from my latest injury, infected bursitis (very painful swollen tennis elbow) caused by stumbling rapidly into a stile with outstretched arms I have slipped on a rocky footpath, smacking my head and ear onto a large rock, splitting the top of my ear and coating the immediate area liberally with the red stuff I tripped coming down from Kinder Scout and caused a mallet finger (snapped tendon) Caching in Derbyshire I slipped on some rocks, landed on my elbow and split the skin, causing a three inch laceration I wouldn't mind so much if I went caching in stilettos but I do wear proper walking boots and am usually holding zarbi's hand I think it's because I get so carried away in all the excitement of finding a cache that I forget to look at where I'm going Anyone else have this problem? zarbibird (Chrissy) Quote Link to comment
