URGENT: Rider Needs Help - Guyman, OK

** UPDATE **

Rider is back on the road, nothing needed at this point. Thank you.


**************************************************

Our fellow inmate is traveling the TAT.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=998193

I just received a message from Steve's SPOT stating the following:

Need help FAST, use ADV Regional. I either have a minor injury or the bike is broke. Cannot ride.

The current location is Guyman, OK

Latitude: 36.69087
Longitude: -101.47702

Is there anyone in the area who can provide assistance?

Thank you!

I have received three similar messages from his SPOT so I don't believe this is a mistake.

I am not able to reach him on his mobile.

OK...

I just spoke with him.

He's in the hospital with a potential broken collar bone.

He is in need of help getting a flight out of Guyman and storing the bike until he's able to arrange transport to pick it up.


Thank you.

Anyone near there?

No head injury, and collarbone might not be broken. I told him to take control of it himself, let the whole thing develop for a while and then let us know what he needs.

He has connectivity and is safe. Bike is in the hospital parking lot, so no gear or bike to recover...just might need some help getting it loaded if he contacts a shipper.

Looks like there's hotels and restaurants near the hospital so they won't have to play Survivorman.

I hope Steve isn't banged up too bad.

I'm on the phone with him right now, it's not broken, bikes is good to go and he's on a prescription level anti inflammatory.

He's driving on in the morning, staying in hotel locally. But the rest of the trip is going as planned for now, thanks for your attention.

Glad things are not as bad as earlier reported. I'm sure there are a lot of people that would be eager to help out if possible, but Guymon is a long way out there. Hope all goes well from here on out.

Thanks. Steve was really shook up, but he's collected now...Makes a big difference to be able to know you're not alone in this
