    I wasn't sure if anyone in the PNW had seen or was following this RR with two riders from the Northwest... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=837596

    They are currently in Ahuachapan, El Salvador where Ed Zachtamundo (Justin) was hit by a truck while passing through an intersection.

    Justin is alive and kicking but could use some assistance from the ADV community. :deal

    Ouch! Does he have a compound fracture of the femur just above the knee joint? Ouch-ouch-ouch!

    I'll send a donation to his PayPal account... set it up!

    After a couple of the accidents I've read about on ADV, here in the PNW and down South, I picked up a SPOT II, and got the SAR option. If I were traveling internationally for any length of time I'd also pick up the GEOS Medivac service. It's only $129/year, and is cheap insurance for incidents like the one described in this thread.

    I looked on ADV and couldn't find an FAQ about motorcycle trekking, with things like minimal toolsets, health insurance and medivac info, etc. Anyone know how we start one?
