Please pardon the non bike related content, but I’d like to ask your assistance for some great folks who suddenly find themselves in need.
Some good friends of ours, Bob & Nora Azevedo, were in a terrible car wreck this weekend. They are currently at Renown Hospital in Reno (of which I can personally attest is a top-notch facility). I was able to visit them on Monday, and while things are pretty serious overall, they are in good spirits and they’re both fighters.
We believe they are through the worst of it and hopefully they should make full recoveries, but due to multiple broken bones and other injuries they are looking at months of therapy/recovery and a huge pile of medical/rehab bills, plus rent and other living expenses while they are both out of work for the forseeable future.
A family friend has set up a GoFundMe account in order to collect some funds to help them through this difficult time. If you are able to make even a small donation, it would be much appreciated. Even $5-$10 helps, and anything above that even more so.

Bob & Nora are based in Portland, OR, where Dayle and I have recently relocated. So we’ll be keeping a close eye on them over the coming months and offering whatever physical assistance we can to help them get through this difficulty until they can get (quite literally) back on their feet.
Again, I apologize for the blatant solicitation, but I figure this group knows some things about long, difficult paths, and taking care of each other.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
