When I went to Walmart I noticed that they had outlets at almost every parking spot out in the parking lot and I thought to myself, "Wow, they are really RV friendly here!" Then, I went to my work they had these plug in's as well in the parking lot. So that kind of confused me, but I reasoned that maybe they had a lot of electric cars here. Then, noticed them at my apartment and they even had a switch I could flip in my apartment to turn on my plug in.
I had already noticed the plug in areas, but I had not noticed the extension cords yet. So right when I left orientation I started looking closer at all the other cars in the lot and sure enough probably 60% of them had cords hanging out of the bumper. I guess you learn something new everyday!

Speaking of learning something... I think I am going to learn a lot on this assignment with all the different kinds of patients I will be seeing and working in an outpatient setting full time will be a new and challenging experience too. I hope I am up for the challenge.
There are some interesting differences in the things you have to teach patients too. Check out this sheet we give out for crutch training...

There is another PT traveler that started at the same time I did. He and his wife travel together and they invited me to go on a hike with them this weekend. It is one of the most popular hikes in the area called Angel Rocks Trail. It was a little overcast, but there was a lot of pretty scenery! It has been hot here recently and the overcast day actually helped to keep it nice and cool. The only problem was it was the perfect weather for the mosquitoes too. So far the mosquitoes have been the bane of my existence since arriving here. They get into my apartment and they get into the car, and on this hike they were worse then I have ever seen in my life! There were hundreds swarming around us. As I was walking down the path and my hands were swinging at my side I could feel my hands hitting mosquitoes with each swing. Thankfully, I doused myself in so much repellent that none of them wanted to bite me, but that didn't stop them from hanging around us until we got above the tree line.
