By this I mean I agree with you and am going through a similar experience. A year ago I was completely down and out and now I'm living the life on the road. You get to appreciate the good times so much more when you have scars to reflect on. My situation was definitely not as severe as yours or Trevor's, but I can relate.

I hope Trevor gets to feel that high on a Honda on a road out there somewhere soon. He deserves it after the shit he's been put through. And while he might struggle with ever gaining absolute parity with where he was physically (not sure completely the extent of his injuries), he might gain a perspective that will replace or even exceed what he has lost. Thanks for posting dogjaw
read this to Trevor and Pam yesterday; good stuff.

I don't know what to say. Thanks for the honor!

Hopefully the message lifted spirits and put an image in Trevor's head of piloting a hondasycle in the future!

GSF, I'll PM you when I get a sec... Things are a but rocky right now; from Pam:

Trevor update: I had to wait until I stopped crying to write this.
Robynn and Chris, Blip Workshop.Thank you for your Everribbon donation. I got a call this morning that the out of pocket cost for Trevor's bone scan on Monday would be more than double what I'd been quoted.He needs the scan in order to get surgery to remove the painful H.O. bone in his elbow which is limiting his movement severely. He was denied a treatment for his left side spacticity last week because the out of pocket cost was too high .I started counting every dollar and then I checked the Everribbon site. To quote Trevor "It blew my wig off". It breaks my heart that he is denied anything related to easing his pain and healing his injuries but it soothes my soul when folks like you extend a helping hand and make a sacrifice for his well being. Thank you from a mother's heart. I hope I can thank you in person someday. with Trevor Ware.

Follow the money. Corporations, banks, and insurance companies don't give a damn about helping people; they are legally sanctioned ponzi schemes for the owners. They are about making money and (insert Trevor's #4) everyone else.

Its crazy the duality of our society in terms of greed vs charity. So many of us derive satisfaction in giving, and yet all our "big businesses" and legal/financial institutions can be so cold.

Sorry for the rant. I look forward to the pm

went over to Trevor's to work on his wheelchair ramp, he is giving Pam pretty rough time as he gets used to his new meds... she could use anything you could spare to give her a lift; not necessarily just financial, though that would help, but a letter, postcard, post on her FB wall, etc, would mean a lot to her. She is as special as a mom as Trevor is as an adventurer, and I don't say that lightly, and she is in a very tight spot. her FB is Pamela Padgett Ware, Trevor's Paypal is boxnife@gmail.com.

We are willing to do anything in our power to help locally, but we are running out of options... the civil case starts in February, may be some relief then.

Bump. I just donated to get the target down to an even $1000 remaining. Anybody else got some spare pocket change that we can use to help? Trevor helped inspire me to take off on a cross-country fly and ride tomorrow morning, and I'd sure like to help repay him and Pam for what they've given me.

Trevor's bone scan went well; they must determine that the HO in his left leg and arm has quit growing before they can reset them... He has been giving Pam a heckuva time, pulling fire alarms, etc, hopefully this latest procedure will give him some hope. A fellow ADVer described him pre-accident as a "force of nature"; I don't disagree with that right now.
