Plus 'leventy-nine. I've been wondering how things are going for Dale.

Question Texting while driving

Texting and driving is still legal in Fl. Tea partiers won't let big government tell "Us" what to do,Go figure.

What a fucking bummer man. We need to put a 2 stroker in your wheel chair. Hopefully it doesn't come to that.

I didn't know Dale, I sure hope he is well and so Dale, if you read this, , just know that people here care about you. .

I'm always impressed at the bond motorcyclists share. It is something very special that connects us all, a universal truth among brotherhood that blurs the dissimilar and celebrates the joy of being alive. .... . from the seat of a bike or even a wheelchair... once a motorcyclist, always a motorcyclist...

Anniversary

I believe next week will be eight years since Dale's accident.
Certainly a somber occasion in our slightly twisted but loving community.

I know it's cold a lot of places right now, but if you get a chance try to get out on your bike. Before you throw your leg over the seat please send a thought out to Dale and then put your passenger pegs out so he can come along on the ride with you.

Choose to be inspired rather than saddened.

Staying Strong

Hey Dale,

How is it going these days. Eight years, huh? Are you still engaged? No, not with a ring, I mean head down and focused. For many of us when the doc's said there was nothing more they could do for us, depression set in. What? Fix me, damn it!

But the reality of it is that we don't know much about the human body. So, we just have to work with what we have. At eight years some of us had regained some mobility, some not. Whatever. So where are you now? What's up? Where are you heading? Fill us in, ok?

A few months ago, on the night of the 10-year anniversary of my crash, I was limping with a cane into a little Milonga in Buenos Aires. Ten years before, when I woke up in the hospital paralyzed from the chest down, I had promised myself that someday I would dance again even if it is in a wheelchair or on crutches or feet. You know, we need to promise ourselves stuff to keep going. So on the night of 7 November as I hobbled around the wooden dance floor with a beautiful partner, I took you with me. In the dim light I said, this Tango is for Dale.

Wherever you are now I hope you are smiling because you are still working hard on your promises. You are still going strong.

Your SCI Buddy,
Coach

Wow, Coach. That is some strong stuff. Thank you and a solid Amen to all that you wrote.

A little worried that we've gone so long without an update.
Has anyone been in touch with Dale or his family at all?

He hasn't been around for quite a while - from his profile:

Happy Birthday, Dale!

I guess Dale hasn't been around these parts for awhile, but my calendar says today is his birthday, so I'm saying Happy Birthday, Dale! Another lap around the sun!

Hello Dale, Hello Zeke!
I remember him saying he was stepping away from ADV to concentrate on his family. More power to him.

Can someone find out where Dale lives and if he's still with us. I think a THOUSAND motorcycles need to ride to his house every year on his birthday and let him know we still care.
