My Father in law is battling lung cancer. Shortly after he was diagnosed, his doctors put him on a VERY agressive Chemo then radiation treatment trying to get the tumor smaller so that the surgery would not be as life threatening. FIL did not take the chemo well, his doctors have expedited his surgery to early July. I will be staying close to support my lovely .

Every time her phone rings we both take a breath and cross our fingers.


Dorito, thanks, I will be starting next years plan using the excel spread sheet as a beginning point. I am thinking that I may need to check out the D2D.



As I say in my sick line:

F*CK CANCER

I'm sorry to hear about your father in law and wish him a full recovery. Was looking forward to meeting a fellow BRP owner. We'll be here next year also. D2D sounds like a great time and hope you can make it next year.

Sorry to hear your news - I wish you and yours all the best.

Looks like I won't be going this year either - I blew my knee out last weekend on a fantastic ride on Vancouver Island.
See you next year!

How about keeping this thread alive and I'll see if we can have the date changed in the title?

6, you as the OP need to ask the Mods if they will change title.

I would like to plan for a D2D for '13.

One heads up, I may a bit quiet around July 3. That would have been my dads 84th, he passed 1/1/93 and it will be 20 years since he passed.

You have my condolences.

My dad is still here - will be 90 in September.

If I read the following correctly:

http://www.motoquesttours.com/guided...d-rush-tour-13

DtoD 2013 is 18 to 29 June.

We can certainly plan around that.

Explanation in the first post and a name (date) change request has been sent.

We still intend to do this and with an entire year to plan it, if should be even better!

I still intend to head north and west, meeting my friend in MN and then we will ride around Lake Superior.
