    So tomorrow is a big day surgery-wise. They’re removing all the plates and screws from the left leg in preparation for a later knee-replacement surgery.
    As soon as possible after tomorrow’s surgery I’ll be flying back to Ohio to see family and friends (last there June 2019) and to renew my drivers license.
    Sunny’s refresh is nearly done, readying her for display during some Rallies this Summer at the Woodys tent. That should be fun and allow me to meet some of you.

    And oh yeah. I’m looking for someone with a 3D printer and TPU material to print something for Sunny. Let me know if you can!

    Sunny will be a big hit at the rallies.

    And Dan, when at the rallies make sure the Banamichi sticker is highly visible. :jack

    And hoping for a quick in and out with the surgery.

    Have stickers made for the rally like this with and saying "Woody's Wheels - stronger than a charging Javelina. "
    Grow the legend of Dan, Sunny and Woody's Wheels

    I think you are onto something there. If you can make these available for those who can’t attend. I’d buy one or five. I’m thinking T-shirt too.

    So
    Cycle South returns to Ohio for first time since June 2019
    I’m flying into CLE late Monday the 14th. An old dear friend will pick me up and take me to my Father’s in Cuyahoga Falls.
    I’ll stay a week and get a few things done, shed some tears and have a wonderful visit with my Dad,’close family and whoever.
    Tuesday I’m welcoming anyone that wants to swing by, grab a bite and a drink (or more) and catch up. There’s even room for some tents. I have no idea of how many as it’s last minute and a weekday. But whatever lol. I’m excited to see my Dad and Sister and immediate family.

    I’m back to the grind. Insane pain levels when trying to move the leg. OxyContin a plenty. And a host of other new meds.

    OK. It’s Tribe time and I’ve got one rolled and a mason jar with ice and root beer (no alcohol for me while on opiates)

    Take care everyone. Of each other as well as yourselves

    Of all these dates you had set up in the last few weeks this one is the best! I don’t how you can only stay one week. Is Spencer going to be there too?
    Sure wish I could cross the border. I’d be there for sure.
    Hope the pain level gets to be better and glad you got some soothing medication.
    Your happiness to get to Ohio is palpable. :beer

    I have to be back in Denver to have these staples and stitches out and have more fluid drawn from screw holes (checking for bone infection), so I can’t stay.
    I’ll bring back some clothes. A pair of jeans or two (I haven’t worn jeans in three years!) and a few shirts. The only clothes I had on the road is all I have since arriving in the US.

    Glad you’re heading home. I’m sure your dad will be very excited to see you.

    My enthusiasm for the trip to Ohio has faded in proportion to the levels of pain I’m feeling.
    I’m still coming, but have decided that Saturday June 19th will be the day (weather permitting) that people should stop over. That’ll give me more time to stop hurting so much.
    Of course you can stop by anytime other than that as long as you message me first so I know to be dressed etc lol.

    That's where you and I differ. I advise folks to check to see IF I will be dressed. If they still choose to come, it's all on them. :)

    More ‘Hurry up and wait’, but at least it’s only 45 minutes. You should be in a good place to people watch anyway.
