Four Years

Deborah had the chickadees eating out of her hand

Last Saturday marked the fourth anniversary of my accident. In some ways, the time has flown by but in other ways it seems like forever. The most surprising thing for me is that I'm still seeing plenty of changes and improvement, even this long after; I'm still getting stronger, handier in the chair and have more stamina, and that makes a lot of things easier.

Deborah and I didn't do anything special to mark the occasion, but it was a nice sunny day so we went to the Reifel Bird Sanctuary. We've been there a few times before, but there are always different birds depending on when you go. Here is an example of my improvement just in the year since we moved to Vancouver: Deborah noticed that when we went to the sanctuary the first time, she had to help me around the trails quite a bit. This time however, she hardly had to help me at all.

I'm hoping my photography skills have improved in the last year too! There are more pictures from our trip to the sanctuary here.


  1. Hey Trev, I don't check your blog out that often, but I do still keep tabs and check in from time to time. Odd that today I was compelled to stop by. Did not realize four years had passed. Awesome to know that you continue to progress and improve. Dug the bird pics. As always wishing you continued improvement. Take care.


  2. Good day Trev!! Your will and determination to keep pushing forward warms my heart and gives me encouragement! I'm just a regular guy from Maryland that likes motorcycles and i used to truly enjoy your segments in the magazines. I remember the shock i felt when i became aware of the accident. I think of you and i wish for increased strength for you day by day!

  3. I still remember that day where I learned of your accident. I remember thinking to myself "another great loss for the motorcycle community". But I'm still glad you're with us & contribute to Inside Motorcycles
