Thanks!

We're trying to keep the updates coming, but we've run into problems. We were in a low-speed car accident last month in a city just outside our hometown. We were hit head-on, and, other than the car being a write-off, everything seemed to be OK. Paula was feeling some pain that intensified the following day. The pain was in her neck and back and she has been feeling partial loss of sensation in her neck and down her arm. It turns out that she may have possible nerve damage and will remain in Canada for an MRI and other tests to determine the severity of her injuries, and to heal.

I am leaving in two weeks to return to Portugal. Hopefully everything will turn out OK and, if the recovery goes well, Paula will meet up with me later in the summer.

Rocky, Paula, so sorry to hear about this accident and Paula's injuries! To think, after all the miles you have on a motorcycle, including the accident down south, to be hurt while in a car! But I guess it was better, in this case, not to have had a head-on with a car while riding. I'm sure my voice is just one among the thousands of readers you have, wishing Paula a speedy and full recovery! My thoughts are with you both.

Get well soon

Rocky and Paula
I hope you are alright and get well soon Paula.
I just sent your Ride Report to my Son and his Girlfriend.
They are leaving on Monday for a similar trip in South America but not on bikes . But still travelling around . They are about your Age . He just finished a PHD at McMaster (yes that Mac in Hamilton) and she quit her job to go and travel for 7 months. They remind me of you guys. I hope they have as good of an experience as you two have.
Safe Travels
Paul

We've been neglecting the ride report for a while now, I know. We've just finished traveling and we returned to Canada last month. Paula is doing much better, but still feels some effects of her injuries. She is back at work and I am currently looking for a new job. I've been getting on Paula to work on her writing so that we can get the ride report going.

In the meantime, here is a video from a few months ago:
