Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. During our motorcycle trip out West 3 out of our 7 motorcycles were involved in an accident. There were chunks of wood in the roadway just over the crest of a hill. The first bike swerved to miss the wood and went down, the next bike hit the first one and went down. Tami and the next bike were able to avoid the first two and stopped unhurt. Unfortunately Dave came over the hill unaware of what had happened. When he saw the site, he braked hard and lost control, rolling several times causing very severe injuries. This happened near Burns, Oregon. Dave was taken to the local hospital then air cared by helicoptor to St. Charles Medical Center. His injuries include head and chest trauma. Three others were injured but were released from the hospital. Dave will be in intensive care for many weeks, and will need your prayers. Tami will be staying in the area.
