...but then this added a little hope and perspective that it may not be completely lost.

Long story short lets keep our fingers crossed. He is not out of the race yet. When he gets to the bivioac and gets cleared medically then the big question is whether or not they can make the bike ridable for tomorrow. We will let everyone know once we know.
Thank to all the ADV Riders out there for your support. Lets keep "positive vibes" for Don !!
