Re: Mark Tracy

Man... Everywhere I look... cancer, cancer, cancer... I guess if I were to get it, I'd want to to take me quick instead of the long drawn out battle... Sorry to see this. Will definitely pray for him, the family, and the dog.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: Mark Tracy

So sorry to hear this. I've ridden with Mark many times and he always makes you bring your A game to keep him in sight. He and his family are in my prayers.

For sure, road with him just a few weeks ago, he was on his game. I wonder if he even knew he was sick at the time, really sad deal.

Re: Mark Tracy

I first met Mark in the mid 80's and we've ridden together more than a time or two. So very sorry to hear of this. I'm gonna try to go see him sometime this weekend.

Re: Mark Tracy

today, he slept while I was there so I didn't get to talk with him. I did talk with his family members and his dog, Girl, was there with him. If you wish to drop by and visit with them, he is in MEMORIAL HERMANN hospital in the Woodlands in room 3251. If you do get to stop by, please give everyone an update when you get back. Thanks for all the good thoughts and prayers so far. Please keep them coming

Re: Mark Tracy

This is Girl, little history. Mark rescued her from the SHNF trailhead after some jerk dropped her and a couple of other dogs off. He finally befriended her and got her home. Very friendly dog that likes to run. He loves this dog and I'd hate to see it end up in a shelter. If interested you can post here or on ODODB site. I'm dog poor right now and my wife would hang me.

Re: Mark Tracy

So sad! I met Mark about 5 years ago when he had a Ktm 150 he nick named Zippy. It had white plastic and Penton stickers. It had a Rekluse clutch .. Flexx bars and every doodad you can imagine. He let me ride it. It was a true Cadillac for off road. About a year or so later he got a new Husqvarva / Husaberg 350. He was so proud of his new bike. He brought it out to 3palms to break it in. In true mark fashion do you offer let me write his brand new bike. What a treat that was. We will miss you. Godspeed .

Re: Mark Tracy

Mark was a great guy and was always all about dirt riding. He will be missed by everone of us who rode with him. I will always remember him out at the SHNF with sag ruler in hand helping everyone to get the sag set properly on their bikes for the trails.
21 Braaaap salute my friend!
We will all find our way to that next big starting gate soon enough...
