Up 24 hrs. Nowhere to sleep. Couldn't make it to hotel so they didn't refund reservations. Broke. Argued over 4 hrs with various AAA reps. They tried to jump but their booster was dead. Blamed the bike ( barely turned over the bike.. I know how she's supposed to sound). No phone since I burnt all of prepaid trying to get a jump.

I'm in S Ontario near St. Catherine's. At a TH near intersection of QEW and Victoria Ave. At least I have crappy Maybe battery bad, seemed to run fine until shut off. Tail fuse burnt twice too..

Sorry I can't help personally but did you check the membership map. This is one of the critical reasons we were told it was so important to establish. lol Actually it may help you in this particular situation. Give it a try as it couldn't hurt.

damn dude! talk about being in stuck between a rock and a hard place. BLAST! I know this doesn't really help you, but I did try.......first off, if I could I'd be in the car and half way to you right now! where you are at is about a 3 1/2 drive from me. the drive is not the problem, me not having a Passport is! blast! if this was the good old days, I'd be there by now!
but I did try, I know of 1 member who is, right now, in Canada. I got a hold of him and sent him the post you posted. the problem is, he's 4hrs., away from you too! blast! I tried buddy. I'm not sure what else I can do from here. I'm open to suggestion. I feel real bad and would like to help. if you can or if you think of anyway I maybe able to help, please post it here if you can.
blast, this sucks :(

I PM'd Hex a few hours ago to see if I could send him a little cash but he apparently hasn't checked in.

it seems the last time he was on was around 5:50am this morning.
damn. I really hope he's ok. it really sucks that we really don't have a way to communicate with him. we don't even know if has internet access. :confused: he did say he burned up all his minutes on his prepay phone. so, cell # to call or text him is not going to help. doh!

Hey Hex, if by chance you get to read this and are able to reply, is the way we can reach you? or is there anyone we can reach for you back home? if so, post it here!

Just got back from a 6 hour bike run and saw this thread. He is or was about a 3 1/2 hour drive from me. Don't know how much help I could be. I would suggest these people who are near him and are good.

Hope he didn't give up on this site so soon. Hoping he keeps us in the loop.

Seems very odd that he had one post and nothing else. On his other thread he posted once, I answered him ( to avoid some of these problems ) and he never answered or posted on that thread again.

wolfie pasports takes several weeks to get, if you get lucky and get it in a hurry, and they arent cheap but I got mine 8 years ago. I just got back from bahamas at 4 am this morning after a 15 hour drive from cocoa beach florida that cleaned my bank account or I'd ran up too

Been over 36 hours now, hope he's safe. By now he's surly found some way to log in or found some help.
Remember the kids game "Where's Waldo"??? "Where's Hex"???
