Ok… here we go.  Its time to get started again.  Since the accident on the side of that road in Guangning, I have tried to keep myself busy; preparing for the return to the road.  I have settled back into Ningbo over the last 12 months… but its time to shift gears again.

Somewhere in the world there is a defeat for everyone.
Some are destroyed by defeat,
and some made small and mean by victory.
Greatness lives in one who triumphs equally over defeat and victory.

John Steinbeck

The JaYoe Travelogues are a video series documenting the experiences on the road as I travel on my recumbent trike from Ningbo, China to the USA.  Thru my lens, I hope to give you a glimpse of the lives, moments, triumphs and trials along the way.

    Hey Matt,
    Great to see you back on the road. I, too, had a bike accident while on a bike tour. I crashed in a slimy puddle in the Florida Keys in 2011. A broken ankle with open fracture became infected with flesh-eating bacteria. Two women with the same bug in my MIchigan died within a few days of infection. I was lucky to live. After 2 months of antibiotics infused daily for two months I had 7 surgeries over a 2 1/2 year span. The final surgery gave me a fused ankle with a stainless steel strap and 10 screws. This year I am thrilled to be touring once more. Over the years, I’d pedaled 25,000 miles over much of North America on my recumbent between the Atlantic and Pacific. Gee,there are so many places to see and so little time. After retirement in a year, I hope to ride across the USA. That goal keeps me going. And I am cheered to see you are still going. We all have setbacks along the journey of life. It’s how you handle the adversity that makes for a great story. Keep up the discoveries. Oh, I love those DJI drone photos! Ride on, Matt!
