Well its been a few months now since I have been home recuperating from the accident . Next month (21st March ) I will be having the Plate and Pins removed from my knee . My knee is really coming along now and gaining in strength every day . I have been going to the Gym 4 days a week working it out real hard and it is paying off in leaps and bounds
I have been a little worried (and still are ) that my knee will not regain enough strength to handle a bike this year , so i can return to finish the trip . But you have to make a decision and say Bugger it I'm going and make it happen , so the planning is on the way.
Ruth and I will be going to Spain on the 1st September for 1 month and then I will go on down to Guatemala , Ruth will carry on home back to NZ . We decided that it is not really a trip to be 2 up and Ruth is not a Bike Rider , which is a real bugger because it would just so great to have Ruth along with me , we are such good team .
Julio is going to start to look for a bike for me in Guatemala City and both him and i will make to trip down to Ushuaia . Just as to for how long and which way we go is still in the planning , but there is only one way and that is down .
As for a bike I'm thinking a KLR Kawasaki 650 , something light and easy to manoeuvre with a gummy leg . Even though my leg is better it will never be as good as before , because of the balls up the surgeon made on my knee in Guatemala it is now bent quite badly to the left and walking to far with out a stick is impossible (hey but I can walk ) .
The Cat is Basil he is a Maine Coon (a real neat cat )
Life at the beach NZ style what a bugger
