    Bonus warm weather here in Maine made it possible to complete my trip around the world......at the DeLorme/Garmin Map Store. :--)

    January 2010 a neurologist advised me that I would probably only live 2-4 years and I should go home get my affairs in order.

    90,000 since being diagnosed, 37,000 on this BMW/Hannigan rig. While I realize it's not exactly going around the world, I'm feeling pretty good considering how many others have died from ALS during that same span of time.

    I can no longer walk, talk, eat, breathe all that well but......I am still riding. :--)

    Been thinking about you since I saw your post. Such an inspiration to go out and live. Again, prayers will be following and foreshadowing you...

    You remind me of one of my favorite quotes...

    You are an inspiration to us all. Makes me feel like a real jerk for complaining about my rehab from shoulder surgery. Thanks for your post, you have given me encouragement. Fight on.....
