Recovery is going well - thanks. The lingering after effects of the concussion are gone and the back is starting to feel better - that will take some time though. Back riding again against my doctor's and everyone's wishes. I have an off-road GS event this weekend I'm hoping to get to. You are doing an outstanding job of describing the adventure. I'm really relying on you to tell the story of my crash though - since the only thing I remember is being lost in Adam's dust trail and me saying to myself: "Sh_t! I'm going to crash." Then it was lights out. Please take it from there when you get to that part of the tour. Got an email from Su today...two went down on the way to the Mirage and had to fly home. I'll shoot you her email. It was a pleasure experiencing Africa with you my friend. And don't be so modest.. you are a superior rider.
