    Clayton, very sorry about the accident. Of all the various road hazards out there, I fear animals the most, even when I'm in an SUV.

    Take care and always think positively towards recovery.

    I am sorry about your accident and admire your courage. Keep on fighting.

    Please make public the name of the "medical facility" you were at at Acapulco and of the people that bribed you. I will send the data to all the MC clubs I can, and to the state and national health authorities, (there are people that want all that to change and denouncing is the first step), and I will be glad to help in doing so.

    Clayton,

    Your trip may have taken a different direction now, but keep the faith that you've had from the start of your trip and you will make anything happen.

    Keep all of us posted and let's see this with links to the P.P. account for everyone else to contribute.

    Very sorry to hear about your unfortunate accident -
    In looking I find two hospitals in Houston - It'd be nice for some of us to give you a call for support and to see when you may be able to get out.
