I sincerely hope things work out well in Croatia. Have a safe trip and don't forget to visit Amsterdam. I'm buying dinner.

It has been my experience that when the chips are down, ADVriders shine. You two are no different. It is a blessing that you have the flexibility in your lives currently to drop everything and head to Europe.

Sending positive thoughts your way from East Texas. I feel fortunate to have met you two, if only briefly. Christmas seems like a lifetime ago. You guys are aces in my book.

Kindest regards,

Thank YOU for all the joy and inspiration you have given so many of us by sharing your life on the road. I only wish I could be of more help finding transport for your bikes. Neda, know that your horde of readers are all pulling for you and your family.

Absolutely. Most of us have been through family emergencies and loss. It's never easy.

All part of the journey

Gene and Neda - another inadequate but heartfelt THANK-YOU to both of you for all you have given to us!
Many of us really do feel, in a vicarious way, that we are part of your journey. Know that we are with you both now. Strength for each day, rest for the night.
