    Justin's trip to Moab to compete in the GS Trophy Challenge has hit a snag. He is in BC (Smithers I believe) undergoing treatment for a strep infection in one of his arms. They have him on IV antibiotics at the moment.

    Hoped that the antibiotics get it cleared up ASAP. Sorry that the trip to Moab has been delayed. Get well man!

    Justin, hope you get well soon. The strep can be a scary bug. Don't cut any corners on the treatment. Dick

    Dick, They are thinking more that it may be Burcitis (sp?) now. They've wrapped my IV up so I can get a motorcycle glove over it and push on to Prince George. I'm feeling much better today. The Canuck Docs want me to get IV antibiotics for a bit longer until the swelling and redness shows a more accelerated retreat.

    No travel insurance. Highly unlikely I'll be covered under my current health insurance. This will be a huge kick in the financial ding ding for sure. :cry

    But Moab is still almost in sight, so I'm sticking to optimism now. Getting on the bike for a 4 hour push to P.G. will re-evaluate then.

    and tonight I hope to add to the blog: www.trailsendbmw.blogspot.com

    I also have a spotwalla real time map going: http://spotwalla.com/tripViewer.php?id=55de50500417d7778

    Thanks for the encouragement. Can't wait to see/ride with you all again soon. :clap:freaky

    I am still in Missoula. Woke up feeling like things were getting worse with my elbow infection. Everyones concern had me feeling like I may develop a flesh eating bacteria and be responsible for the beginning of the Zombie Apocalypse! :huh

    So I caved and went to two different docs today. Got yet another type of Antibiotic!:eek1 I usually stay away from Anti-anything.

    Both Docs said get rest and hit the road early for Moab... So it's back on. Heading out early in the am. :clap

    Thanks for all the well wishes and support.

    Cheers,

    Justin

    You got TWO docs to say continue the ride to Moab? And Compete?
    What does that say for Montana docs?

    Whatever, thats great news. Sleep well tonight. Now get off ADV and hit the hay while we talk amongst ourselves.

    Justin. Awesome. Glad you turned the corner. Sometimes you gotta let go before you get a good hold. Rooting for you. Dick
