Prayers sent.

I don't know anything about back injuries, so this may be a moot point. But don't resign yourself to life in a wheelchair just yet. There's more than one person out there who had the docs tell them they would never walk again, and then proved the docs wrong.

Ramps and things.

Can ADVriders take up this noble cause?

I can run a saw and hammer, just don't trust me to measure anything

Plans here in this post:

Waiting to hear from Dale...we're PM'ing. Let's let him get through the next stage and see what his rehab timetable is. His wife will need support, too.

Perhaps a thread in JM to get people gathered for a ramp building would be a good step...on standby with the understanding that we're not pushing...

Just put a thread in JM.

If he's got a couple steps an off-the-shelf aluminum WC ramp would do the trick, otherwise perhaps a wooden ramp would be needed.

Insurance is a variable...I was just thinking that maybe anything that would help Dale and his wife by smoothing out the process early on would be cool.

Well, useful words fail me at the moment, but I will be thinking of you today and going forward... My very best thoughts for you, for your wife, and for your upcoming new addition.

May I suggest a 50/50 drawing at every Advrider event this year?

(It's always cool when the winner donates their 50% also although it's not a requirement. )

Dale,

I am not a religious person, so in lieu of "prayer," I have dug a nice hole in the desert for the waste of skin that hit you. Let me know when you need it and I'll provide coordinates

Good luck, and endeavour to persevere.

Just saw the post Dale--prayer sent, more to come.

And I just became even more motivated to check my rearviews at every stop now.

Dale,

My prayers are with you and I hope everything turns out as well as it can. I wish I could express this more eloquently.
Your courage is inspiring.
