    TouringJoe, this is Alex--me and my friend met you guys when you were waiting at the Cassiar gate during the wild fire... We were on 2 KLRs, making our way back to MT. My sincere wishes for a speedy recovery.

    Hey TouringJoe, I was with Sasho when we stopped to chat at the south end of the forest fire on the Cassiar, sorry to hear about your mishap, I'm glad it wasn't worst, hope you heal quickly. I'm happy to hear that you're going to be finishing the ride. Cyle

    Hi Joe,

    Myself and my two riding buddies met you at the Athabasca Glacier just out of Jasper, AB, and then later in Chicken, AK. I was riding down the Dalton solo the day you were riding up and I remember passing you and waiving - we were all moving pretty quickly. I heard about your accident a few days later:eek1. Glad to hear you are OK. :clap

    Cheers,

    Dave

    So glad you are OK... I saw your bike at Dan's, it had just recently arrived from Deadhorse, while I was there changing my oil. It really was in pretty good shape...

    Heres to you healing well & getting back in the saddle :clap

    Thank you all the well wishers and, as to you, AKBeemer, I can take a few jokes about myself. I guess that's a requirement for partaking in this forum - lol

    It's nice to also hear from a bunch of people we met on the road.

    All the best

    Joe
