Hi. My name is Eric. This is my journey after being paralyzed in an off-road motorcycle accident on January 22, 2011. I suffered a fractured T12 resulting in a ASIA A Complete spinal cord injury. I have no sensation or motor function from my waist down and am in a wheelchair. My wife, two young daughters, family and friends have been supporting me in this journey.

Panama City Trip – June 4, 2011

At 4am we were up and getting ready to go to the airport.  We said goodbye to the kids the night before so as to not wake them up in the middle of the night.  I am sure they will be sad we are leaving, though they were way too excited about spending a fun time with their grandparents and Aunt and Uncle to show it.  At 8am we were airborne, exhausted, excited, and ready to start our journey.  At 7pm we made it to Panama and by 9pm we were settled in our hotel room.  In Panama we encountered a few challenges, but I will let Eric tell you about those.
