NT, thanks so much for inviting me in that huge ride. I'd like start tomorrow morning for the longest trip you can plan.
Unfortunately the bike is in Italy and me too I'm in Italy, working, not much because our economy is low and slow for now.
Many things are pissing me off here ( is a bad word?) and I've to stay here, I can't move for now, but...
Next time, I don't know when yet, I'd like to cross your country again along the same trails I rode and more, like the trails you are talking and I'll be glad to ride with you, then, once at the Pacific Ocean, I'll take a left and I'll go to Ushuaya and then more road to travel.

Thanks a lot for your invitation.

Ciao.

Polpo.

Massimo, Not sure where else to post this but I got an email explaining that you had a stroke in Livorno and are in critical condition.

I realize that you probably can't access this but I prayed for you and wanted to let anybody else you might have met in your travels know that a special guy like you is in trouble

Eh? Damn!

dentvet, I'm hoping the email is incorrect, but will be praying for Massimo and will have him at the forefront of my thoughts as I take a ride tomorrow.

From his time in WV 2011.

Yep that's Massimo!

More details; sounds like he went to the hospital on Thursday for shortness of breath due to a heart problem. High blood pressure led to a possible brain aneurism. He is being maintained in medical coma until they can figure out how to keep his pressure normal. All this translated secondhand from his close friends at the hospital.

Hoping for the best...
