It has been 5 weeks since I postponed my unicycle ride across the country to seek assistance in deporting my stowaways leishmaniasis Panamensis.  After receiving infusion treatments of Amphotericin B for three weeks the lesion on my leg began to heal.  Now it is nearly completely healed and has formed into an interesting scar.


I am back riding my unicycle again, but due to other commitments this summer it looks like I won’t resume my unicycle adventure until mid October.  In the mean time I have regattas to sail, the national unicycle convention and competition in July, and a river expedition on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in September.

Thanks again for everyone who supported my efforts.  Tune in again in October to pick up where I left off.

    Maybe you should have offered the leishmaniacs something bigger than a quarter? It would have made that nasty hole in your leg look a lot smaller too. looking forward to resuming the tour of ice cream vendors in the southern tier. ..and so glad you are well !!!

    Thanks for the update! Glad you’re healing and planning for the completion of your ride! Blogging about your other adventures this summer would also be nice to follow! It’s nice to know someone who is living more life in one year than a lot of people live in a lifetime! Ride On…

      Thanks for your support. Before retirement I always had to go back to work to rest up from my vacations. Now that I am retired I may need to get a job to rest up from retirement.
