Just wanted to say hi to some of you old paddlin buddies. If you haven't heard I was in a bad motorcycle crash last August. Smacked an SUV at 60. He turned in front of me. Anyway I'm in a wheelchair and as you know, no wheels in the BDUB. Give me a heads up on the next wing night. If I can I'll show.

JB

PS Dammit Mark, this is in the gear thread!

I bet "no wheels" doesn't apply in bwca. Maybe we should put together a list of flat campsites.

I remember reading a BWCA post about your accident shortly after if happened. Have you been in physical therapy? Can you stand on your own yet?

Take a spin around the neighborhood and write us a trip report. Gotta add a picture of your chair, the make and model, dimensions and how much it weighs.

quote maxxbhp: "Take a spin around the neighborhood and write us a trip report. Gotta add a picture of your chair, the make and model, dimensions and how much it weighs. "

Ya maybe we could carry it and you over a couple portages! Bet we could rig something up with a little paracord and a couple of tree limbs.

Glad to hear you are doing well.
