My nephew. Just try and stay up with him anywhere near the "B".
That's his hood.

Really amazing how just last week he was literally in an induced coma
trying to save him.

He has posted in this thread off and on. More of a lurker.

He is in this RR some...

Based on that, my first reaction is sympathy. And considering a near death experience, he apparently deserves DOUBLE sympathy!

Got Spot

Got a spot-tracker for my birthday. I guess the fam sorta wants me to have a few more bdays.

I sorta get the technical side of it, but whats the socio-buddynomics protocol?

First choice is to ride with a couple of you FFs. And riding is like drinking -- ONLY do it alone or with someone.

Seriously, its a huge favor to ask, and Im offering to do the same if the role is reversed but in the unlikely event Im alone and in a pinch, would one or two of U 'tards come and help me drag the Bigass Dirtbike out of the ditch? Or load the broke bucket-o-bolts into a pickup truck? I'd buy the gas, beer/ Sprite and pizza, maybe even a surround-sound system.

Any suggestions how to set this up?

We did something similar a while back w/ hick. He has my number in case he's in a ditch and he let me use his SPOT once, in case I got into a ditch.

I'll be getting a SPOT myself soon, and I'm OK w/ you using my number as a contact for it. Just as long as you're willing to return the favor later. I'm already looking at options to setup the Forester with a trailer hitch so I haul Hick's trailer around too.

Have truck and trailer... and I think most here know they can call me anytime. Hick has rescued me once already! BR called me, but I was at a race in Wendover...

Hick has me on his call list too. It called me once. I called the number,
it was his wife. She had no idea what it was about. Turned out to
be a false alarm.

We dated for a while... didn't work out.




Okay, maybe I made that last part up.

I'm glad a fellow inmate is on the mend (who's Pete?) It may be good/bad for your heart knowing that Trackhead is thinking about your HUGE ______ after posting that you like your 250!

As Pluric said I am is nephew, he is a great uncle I used to be more active on the forums. I changed jobs to special Ed. Jr. High Teacher about a year and half ago which required me to go back to school. For my program I teach during the day which counts as my student teaching and go to school at night. After homework I use ADV as my entertainment. With an overworked brain I am afraid to leave some incoherent message
Anyway, yes last week I suffered a cardiac arrest and the doctors did give me a 2-3% chance. Hick you might of heard about this but I guess they are trying a new hypothermia treatment. They cool my body down to 33 Celsius. I guess the perspective is cool him and he might die or let him be warm and die. Needless to say the cooling worked. I now have this doohickey in by my heart that acts as a pacemaker and a defibrillator when needed. I also have some burn marks from the defibrillators that I received when the paramedics revived me at home. I am most proud of those, 1: Between this and my wife's CPR this is what kept me alive. 2: Who else has defibulators scares?
The open heart surgery people have a zipper club I think us defibulator people should start our own club.
I was told not to work until after Christmas break. This sounds fun and all but, when you can't do anything and you are not allowed to be alone it gets pretty old. Hopefully when it gets warmer and my heart decides to work again I can join you guys more often

In the mean time I will be going to endless amounts of therapy some mental some physical. I went to my first therapy appointment on Monday. It was to a speech therapist. I felt like an idiot. Speech therapist do a lot more then teach talking. It's more of a how to function in society type of thing. The questions she was asking me were so basic and I knew I should know them but just plain didn't

I don't post often

But I'm always for helping someone out of a ditch. If it smells like a small adventure then that makes it 10x the fun (in a ditch in the middle of cainville during a snowstorm!).

I've PM'ed my contact info to Pluric

On another thread. I have a street legal DRZe 400 that I've ridden in most areas in UT. I even raced it a bit in the USRA series. It is stone reliable and with an aftermarket pipe is fine for power. I have a set of SM wheels that go on for zipping around town. Frankly I think it is the swiss army knife of bikes. Add one of those cool Lynx fairings and you have a medium distance DS bike. Electric start is fantastic.

Speaking of the phone list....

I can't put attachments on the ADV PM system. Todd-Squad
had created a link off his web site that some couldn't get to open.
Plus he has to modify it everytime a name is added. PITA for him

Sooooo, to make a long story longer, please include your personal
email when you send your information. If you want that on the list
too just say so. Otherwise it's ADV handle, name and number on the
phone list. I'll scan it and send to your email.

I did get my Word Perfect to unlock so no more hand written additions.

PM me now to be on the ADV "A list".

At great personal inconveinience and pain I could add a Spot box
on the phone list with a Yes or No if the people want to be put
on anyones Spot contact. Then you can call the person you want
on your Spot and work it out.



A guy can dream can't he?
