Yep, it WAS mine. The guy that bought it (inmate Fujian) came to Van Wert, Ohio from Victoria British Columbia! He took a ferry from Victoria to Seattle, a train from Seattle to Montana, Hitch-hiked from Montana to Casper Wyoming, got a ride from a guy that was moving from Casper to Jacksonville Florida so he rode the whole way with him, flew from Jacksonville Florida to Indianapolis, bummed a ride from Indy to Fort Wayne with a couple he met on the airplane, then hitch-hiked from Fort Wayne to my house in Van Wert. The total distance covered was over 4000 miles! All to buy a 2000 DRZ400. I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it myself. He bought the DRZ from me last Monday, and is riding it home, but looping through Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, into California, and then riding up the Pacific Coast through CA, Oregon, and Washington, and will then ferry the bike back up to Victoria. Ewan McBoreman's got nothin' on this guy. Now that's what I call Adventure riding.

Glad to hear it, so does this mean the little piggies / foot is safe or was this a surgery to remove that which could not be saved?

Neil, that's gonna be one huge barn! You gonna raise elephants in there too?

I guess he didn't have a map to see that Florida isn't exactly on the way to Ohio. LOL

That is great to hear. So what happened to your hand? Did they graft skin from it or something? Either way it's great to hear about the progress. My new saying is that leg wounds heal one step at a time.

No shit! WTF are you going to be doing with that barn? I'm trying to decide whether to build a 20x24 or restore the old tractor barn. Makes my barn decisions look silly.

One hopes it is the correct hand for your favorite activity!

Forgive the missive from a stranger, but I am in awe of your contribution to your fellow man and hope you road to recovery is both swift and painless (or heavily medicated).
