    I am just wondering if I should be packing a gun this year. Last time I went I was shot at. I think I can get a rifle scaber on side of the KLR.

    I shold be leaving the Madison area around 2ish.

    No no no no no.

    You can put that off till 'your dead.



    I thought retired people do whatever they want to today 'cause they can do what they need to tomorrow.



    I guess I won't know what retired people do for awhile....

    Retired gives you TIME! But you need a few other factors to make it work, Cannon has most of these and I do not:
    money enough to spend
    willingness to go

    riding buddy(s)-close by
    riding arena-close by
    no commitments-family

    you need a moto-any brand
    healthy body helps

    Red is have
    Blue is have not

    We're riding buddies.

    Just be glad I don't live in California.
    BRF is close by. (Ever driven to Moab ;) ?
    You just had a vacation with the family.


    There... I just changed to colors for you.

    Thanks, I feel better. All I need to do is load the 530, pack needs, and drive for about 5 hrs and I will be in heaven on dirt for one day & two nights, so I can drive 5 hrs back. Not bad! But! When I get back, this guy is going to stick a knife in me then burn away to his hearts content with a laser.

    Dammit Jay.

    Hoping that the medical folks have things under control and that you will eventually have a full recovery.

    Let us know what we can do to help you take care of things while you are down.

    Wishing you the best.

    Well, that's one way to get out of the hot humid weather.

    Ouch. Welcome to the broken back club. I've got lots of cool hardware in my back, maybe we can compare xrays someday.

    I don't know anything about the the Marshfield hospital, but make sure you get the best care and don't be afraid to get shipped to another hospital, if necessary.

    Jay: I hope there's a good story behind the back incident. Like jumping the Bad Axe River on your GS or something. Sorry to hear you're laid up. Been there done that myself. Watch that Vicodin! Get well soon.

    Talked to Jay.

    Things are pretty stable and it looks like he will have a full recovery over time.

    Don't want to get into any medical detail, but he is working through some things at the hospital and may be out within a few days.

    For now, things are covered, no additional assistance needed.

    He is certainly uncomfortable (pain), but has a good attitude and is working through what he needs to.

    Looks like things are going to work out OK. Still wishing him a speedy recovery.

    If they think he can get out in a few days, that sounds like a good sign.

    Crap, I was in surgery for 8 hours, ICU for 3 days, hospital for 5 weeks and body cast for 2 months. Before I went into surgery, they didn't know if I was going to be walking or rolling out of the hospital. I warned the surgeon that, I was going to be a wheelchair racer, if he didn't get me walking again.

    My recovery was 90%. The surgeon thought I was minor miracle. I think they were expecting the worst. God, what pain. I've never experienced anything as painful as that crushed vertabrae. I hope Jay's isn't that bad. I was pushing that morphine button all the time.:evil

    Good luck Jay.
