Overview

This is a story of a man's journey through normal life, then surviving an almost fatal accident, and the trauma of recovery from that over a period of eleven years - a testament of human endurance and determination.

The first part is about the background of this ordinary working class chap, who strives hard to build up a business, caring for his family along the way like any other person. He has, however, had a passion for motorbikes for most of his life and, finally he achieved his dream of travelling through Alaska, keeping a diary of his experiences and adventures.

The second part of the story finds him back to everyday life after his fantastic trip, when he suffers a horrendous accident whilst at work. He nearly dies. Somehow he survives and then begins a long road to recovery which is to take nearly ten years before he finally emerges from his demons and lost world to gain full health and fitness. This part of the story has been written at various times during his long recovery, giving insight into his lonely world, and encouragement to anyone else who may have suffered a similar trauma.
