    Baggin in the woods

    My brother, John, baggin on our camping trip 4 months after dislocating his left shoulder and shattering his humeral head, which was put back together with a steel plate with 9 screws.

        That's great Jim, I think that's a first, taking a platform on a camping trip. And it looks like a rock solid setup too!

        Looks like he's got the Atomic XS under control, very well done, especially considering that rebuilt shoulder!

          Great to see John back up and around, and very happy that his shoulder appears to be working very well. Hope it isn't really painful to do that. Very nice setup by the way! I always want a tree nest like that.

                Here's a picture of our set up.

                Deano- we had a bag in the house growing up. Our grandfather was one of those typical Irish pugs. He used to do mostly hooks and punching from side as do you and your father (although not nearly as good as I recall). He wasn't much interested in teaching us however.

                  Wilderness baggin

                  Thanks, all, for the encouragement. Jim's setup really is brilliant, and pretty simple. Once he had it designed, I don't think it took us more than five minutes to set it up and take it down. And, the tree was not damaged in the least -- no nails or screws or anything invasive. BTW, both of us have endured major shoulder reconstructions and baggin' seems to be really good PT. I'm doing much better than anyone expected, and I think Jim's shoulder is better than it's been since his accident 10 years ago.

                    Wow that's some seriously intense bagging! Really great! Glad it's working out for you as a rehab workout. Fantastic outdoor set up too.

                        Hey guys - thanks for posting this. I sent the link to the guy that runs Balasz as I thought it was a really cool and unique use of a Balazs platform. He did indeed think it was cool!

                            Dude, that could be hilarious! You run in and start ripping a bag with your elbows and skunky roll, Scissorhands runs in and throws a few spins, then sasquatch hits it, breaks the board to pieces and explodes the bag to dust.

                            that could be a great commercial.

                              Jim, nice job by brother, John. Pretty good hitting by someone who has some serious steel in his body. Bagging must run in the Caher genes.
