    What would you do with a sprained ankle in moab.

    So my buddy sprained his ankle badly while in Fruita on our planned 2 week mtb trip. We are in Moab for the next 5 days. What would you do in Moab if you needed a crutch on a busted ankle?

    I suspect ATVing is out because still puts force on the ankles.

    whatever big fat tourists who can't walk do.

    drive out on gravel roads and watch the sun go down? jeep tours? car camping? some atv-ing might be sedate enough, but i sort of doubt it.

    bummer about your friend and your vacation. hope he heals soon.

    Big fat tourists

    Sucks. Personally I would still try to do some riding. Get up early and pedal while he sleeps. Renting a Jeep could be fun but depending on how painful his ankle is might not work either. Maybe a Rafting trip.

    The outdoor pool at the rec center is open. MIB 3 playing at the cinema, along with Battleship and
    Avengers(?) or maybe dark shadows.
    There's a couple of Adirondack chairs at Moab Coffee Roasters, he can surf and watch the world go by. The library also has surfing and is a generally cool place to hang.
    I dont know if he could drive one of those little atv 4 wheel jobbers that they rent here, but they look like a blast to tear around in.
    There are motorized river tours...

    I think he's going to drop us off at the trailheaeds and drive around town and find something to do. I guess no matter how you look at it this could have happened to any of us.

    Or, more seriously, go see Arches or Indian Creek or something if you haven't been there.

    Tape it and play.
    ATVing should be out for so many other reasons
