    Whoa!!!! Praying for him and his.

    I watched that video and was thinking too many people say "one of these days I'm gonna..." do whatever. Well I've heard my Dad say those words and now when I say 'Dad lets got do that or this' he says "oh that's too far. I don't think I'll ever do that"

    People DO IT NOW while you can!

    Holy crap! I was just going to leave a post letting him know that while most vids suck, his didn't. Talk about a timely message. Heal up, man. There's more to come.

    I watch the vid every morning now as a reminder of what each day represents - opportunity - grab it, feel it, run with it!!! Time is against us all, but its adventurers like Trevor that remind us all what life is really all about. Ride on brothers

    kerncountykid,

    I "hearted" this video on my Vimeo account a while back. Never knew you were on ADV too. Great video, absolutely great! The stills, the rolling footage, the places, the great music track... it has it all. Glad to see you refuse to grow up anytime soon. Motorcycles = Life.

    I'm editing this because I did not read the subsequent pages and had no idea he had been injured in a crash. Whoa... thoughts race... prayers sent. Heal soon, ride far.

    Wow. I clicked on the link in the first post, then the post above. Talk about pegging both ends of the spectrum. KCK shares a moving account of his joys on a motorcycle and then I see he was severely injured on his ride, struck by an alleged drunk driver. How senseless. Adding thoughts for a good recovery, and for justice. :cry

    Waiting eagerly for you, Trevor, to recover soon. Your videoclip on page 1 really made my day.

    No longer"alleged"; Nathan Ray was sentenced to 26 years, will be eligible for parole in 6, and hasn't paid a dime towards damages. No remorse was shown whatsoever at the sentencing hearing either. Donation from this site have purchased wheelchair ramps for his mom and girlfriend's car, but their needs are still great,,, a thread I started to keep people updated, lots of pics:

    I'm leaving Little Rock today, following Trevor's route as far west as Utah/Colorado; inspiration was brought on by his video.

    AZ desert dog also posted this sticky over in Inmates; thanks from a fellow dog;

    Trevor's video remains one of the most wonderful things I've seen in ten years of ADV.

    Thank you for sharing your priceless gift, Trevor.

    All Goodness to you and yours.
