    I lost the plot here a bit, due to admin problems Patrick did not fly out 2 weeks ago as he thought would happen, he only left last night! I was busy out of town and thought he had gone so didn't follow up, some of the other guys informed me he was leaving last night for sure though!

    Thanks for the update Welshman.

    Folks Wonder if Patrick will fly into Toronto? Maybe a ADV welcome will be in order.

    I'm guessing Montreal as that's home for Patrick.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    He is still needing LOTS of Rehab and physio, so he may get booked into a rehab centre as his upstairs apartment is not suitable for him currently, so not sure where he will be:1drink:1drink

    As you can see he's getting better.:clap Patrick does not have access to the internet for the moment. He's working on it and should be able to communicate within a few days.

    I talked to him on the phone a couple of days ago-he's been moved to a rehab facility and is getting started on the next stage of his recovery. :freaky

    We got a note from him the other day. He is in Canada and pushing hard on his physical therapy.

    He arrived in the country 2 weeks ago. His first week was spent in a "Horrible hospital" and then was transfered to a rehabilitation facility. He was told he would be in a wheel chair for 3 months but is already on crutches. He was also told he would be in the rehab facility for 2 months but is currently scheduled to leave on the 24th.

    The man is stubborn like an ox. Asked if he should plan to accompany us to the big BMWOA Rally in Pennsylvania on July 21-24.... I wouldn't be surprised if he was riding by then.
