They are letting me out today.. They thought I had another broken bone in my foot .But after the x-ray it's ok .
So now on to the next nightmare. To see if I can ride my outfit home. I'm just Gona treat each mile as a step closer to home .it's not the riding that's the problem. It's the thrombosis with my leg not being elevated. And boy does it throb

Don't know your route back, but if you are close to Zeeland and fancy some hot food and cool beer near my wood burning stove...You are very welcome. You can even sleep in a pink or red girls bedroom! You would not be the first stranded MT-rider to sleep there.

Well it wouldn't be a proper adventure if there wasn't a hurricane at the end of it .
