The Doc's looked at my remaining chemo schedule and told me I had two weeks in July that I could go but I could not go alone, they knew I could not make it alone. My Wing riding wife could not go on short notice so I called a couple buddy's and they said yes and we had a great time going down the Alcan to camp in Jasper. Oh, the Doc's were right. The first day on the road we only did 160 miles and I was so exhausted I could not set up my camper. My spirit has returned. Riding has helped, this past summer I covered 19500 miles.
