Thanks for asking.
Still healing. Went to neurologist yesterday. Vertebrae are healing correctly. It will be at least a year until completely healed []. Ribs are better and so is shoulder. I still need to wear upper body armor and take pain meds. A long slow process.
Will begin some PT in two weeks for shoulder.
Currently doing minor exercises to relive tension and relax muscles.
Walking daily with a large wheeled walker, mainly for support and a seat.
It's a bitch not being able to drive. So used to just running and getting stuff.
Have lost 29 pounds, a plus. Just a heck of a way to do so.

Chip.

Just received a wonderful surprise visit from John Downs [South America and back on a Super Sherpa, fame].
Thanks for stopping by. Great to catch up and see you John!

365 days like?

a year?! Chip?,,A FRIKKEN YEAR!??
sounds like time for an easy lift wheel around shop chair,,
suitable for building the next adventure bike during your down time,,
"I'm okay honey,,I'll be out in the shop!",,,

I did a lot of sanding with my left arm when the right was inna sling for months too long.
I hope you surprise 'em and heal up in 2 weeks!

Best wishes for a speedy recovery from NH

You know we're all thinking of you back East - Pics from the scene of the accident went around the table at the last family BBQ. Props for being an ATGATT rider! Heal fast!

Saw Roger at the Eugene/Springfield Meetup last night. He's driving now and starting to look like his old self...and has a cool storm trooper outfit!

I saw him wandering in the street the other day, so we know he can walk!

Health update!

Thanks for asking.
I am doing quite well. Shoulder and ribs are good. Back is stiff but daily exercises, walking and stationary bicycle use help a lot. I go to a physical therapist every three weeks, mostly for progress observations. Spine should be completely healed by June! LOL
Have been attending the Wed dinners. Great people and terrific food.
Everyone is giving me great input for future bike. Of course, it's not like I haven't been thinking about too.
I have been pretty fortunate with my recovery.
Have had such an outpouring of help, it's unbelievable.
Thanks to everyone.
