Send me a PM if interested. I will get you all in contact.

Hello Radioman and Young James,
I believe that I met James last summer at the U of Alaska car park. My KLR and my buddies R1200GS had just taken us to Deadhorse. I have been lurking on your thread since the beggining and love it all. The pics are brilliant. Carry on and be safe. You do many of us a great service to share the ride.

Mark,

Too funny about how old we think we are. My buddy asked me last year, he got all serious
and asked me "how old I think I am" ( in my mind that is ) I told him 25, but my body tells me
I'm over forty. Too many times I do 25 year old stuff.

Marc Cohn's " True Companion " mine and my best friend's wedding song. She loves that song! Almost made me
tear up, got the lump.

Thanks for taking us with you...Journey On!

Radioman Rides a Gurney

Ok I shall be the one to brake the news.... brace yourselves...

Mark has been a little under the weather last 2 days. I was feeling a bit crap yesterday morning but after a couple of drugs(legal kind) & about 2-3 thousand milligrams of Vitamin C I was grand again. Mark on the other hand.... not so much. At about 6pm I was called aways from my editing by a concerning voice... mark was shivering cold, crazy bloodshot eyes and having trouble breathing...

This was not good... could be nothing, could altitude sickness or could be a heart attack.... in my best motherly/wife-like tone I Said we are going for a ride(in a taxi)


Mark being helped into the hospital by Hector and staff


Checking his vitals


What's up Doc


A couple of worried mothers

I am sure he will be fine...


I need a priest....

More To Follow Soon....
