Ever try to get in to see your chiropractor, only to be told you’re waiting a few days? Every been hurt on a Saturday? Hood River Chiropractic, located downtown above Flow Yoga, can help you out. Docs Michelle and Alex (who rips Post Canyon all the time) can get you in, even on a Saturday. These two understand you don’t want to slow down because you’re hurt. They’ll work with you to formulate a recovery plan that allows you to keep doing the things you love (like ride Post). They take insurance, they offer cash discounts, and they’ll make sure you get the treatment you need. Finally, if you need some supplements (no, not EPO or HGH), they’ll do customized nutritional analysis to make sure you’re only getting the supps you really need. To book an appointment, give them a call: 541-406-0849. Two of the lucky people on the email version of this forecast will win free chiropractic appointments this week.

We’re in a light wind pattern for the next couple of days as low pressure sits off the Oregon coast. We’ll start off with very light wind today, building to 7-12 this afternoon with thermal assistance. Tomorrow starts off in the 5-10 range, picking up to 13-15 in the afternoon if we are lucky as a system approaches the coast.

The Clymb: free membership.
Access to super cheap gear including Trew, Zeal, Sierra Designs, and many more.

We should see a good marine push during the day on Friday. That gives us 10-13 to start, building to 17-20, maybe 21-24 in the afternoon and then stronger overnight. The strongest wind on Friday will probably be at Stevenson. Saturday looks a lot more promising for kiting and windsurfing with strong wind early in the morning fading as high pressure builds in the afternoon.

It’s Wednesday, and that means the regular Wednesday night events are going on. If you want a bike ride, there’s the women’s only Post and Pinot at Dirty Fingers Bike Repair at 5:30. There are sailboat races out of the Hood River Marina tonight, and there’s the Kayak Shed’s shop paddle leaving Husum at 5:30 to run the Class II+ Lower white Salmon and the Class III Middle White Salmon.

Coming up this weekend, it’s my personal favorite on Saturday, the Bigfoot Bash and Bounty, taking place in Home Valley. The fun starts with a huckleberry pancake breakfast at 8 and runs all day, finishing with a Bigfoot movie at 7pm. Also this weekend, there’s a pickup touch rugby game at the Mosier School at 4pm on Sunday.

Have an awesome day today!
