    I stopped in and checked on Ron today. He is doing well and is in good spirits despite the broken hip. Lots of hot nurses in that hospital....

    I had a little high speed crash at the far south end of Westside Road that sent me to the ER and damaged the Triumph a little:

    There was a guy a in a Tacoma that helped me picknthe bike up, strap up my useless left arm, and gave me a ride back to Furnace Creek. Between CHP and the tow, the snowstorm, and an upset GF, I made it to the ER about 3am. Broken collarbone is all the damage to me.

    shit man, you are a trooper.


    ... I had texted Tim when I arrived home about Ron's hospital info since he planned on visiting him once he got home in Las Vegas. he got back to me saying he had a get off on West Side Road. I never then expected him to still visit Ron after breaking his collarbone.
    ... people... Tim is a good man.

    also, 5 years ago today I had surgery in Las Vegas from a perforation from a Crohns Disease flare up while at DVDAZE and Tim was the first friend there to visit me.
    thanks Tim.

    heal up quickly you two, @beemerron and @tbarstow :pynd

    My complements to the chef! I think that chili kept me going on the long wet windy ride home Sunday.

    We hit tehachipi @ 1100ish pouring rain - stopped at Denny's ate and stepped outside to get back on the bike juuuust as it started snowing.

    Yep some fog but not bad at all... Found a really killer gas station in McFarland by accident, I forgot to fill up in tehachipi, it had a laundramat attached to it so we warmed up a bit and tossed our outer gear in a drier. Soon after McFarland the rain quit and we had a fairly dry if a bit cold ride the rest of the way home.

    Tim. You obviously misunderstand what it means to visit someone in the hospital. :doh

    Hope you heal up fast, man. :thumb

    Had a great time at DVD 16. Just barely made it over Greenhorn Summit going home. Half a foot of snow and no chains!
    Thank you again Jimmy for the fine meal.
    Hey Tim, thats no way to treat a new bike.

    The medical professionals think it's a good idea if I just stay right here for another week or so to let the bone heal some since it was broken into numerous pieces. Once the bone has set some I'll fly back to Portland

    The question becomes WHY pack a lawnmower 100 miles into a mine in Death Valley ?
