And guys, my body donor card is behind my driver's license. Keep me on ice until they can come pick me up.

Wallet is in the backpack on the bike.

After that you can come see me at Body Worlds (yes, I'm a donor for the exhibit.)

Cool. When was that picture taken? It looks like recently but I guess the snow melts the same way every year.

I'll have to try the trail going the right way next time. It'll be a whole new set of obstacles.
April of 05.

2004 that spot was actually tougher. Stupid full sizes and Hummers tamed it.

You really don't want to join!

As far as the SPOT units, Brigitte raises a good point. SPOT offers $40,000.00 per occurence of SAR insurance.

Guys, we NEED to make sure everyone knows we have a SPOT unit and where its at! I highly suggest are SPOT units are out in the open like on our handlebars.
I too am a veteran of the broken collar bone; ribs and collapsed lung (throw a ruptured spleen in for good measure). Speaking from experience, as good a story as it makes around a camp fire, not a club you want to join if you can help it. NOW, is it me or has the number of medivac type injuries increase proportionately to the number of Spots that inmates are carrying

everything went so smooth...these guys are all synchro

the paramedic drove near to a hill top


soon the helivac came








finally henry is taken to the nearby arrowhead hospital


back in the accident site, we updated others for the current situation


henry's personal belonging was handed over to the ranger and his bike we stored behind the forestry shed.

Good points about knowing who has and where the SPOT is located.

For future reference... see the little camera case on my rear rack...

That is my SPOT. Get your head out of the gutter... not that spot.

Yes, laying on the couch I definitely tell you this is not a club you want to get into. If anybody has any first aid rehab advice I'll take it!

Ya know, the common denominator for these helicopter ride things seems to be dannyG or rickF.
