In Helsinki Jim and I included the Luther cathedral, the port, the Sibelius monument, an art museum, and some good meals in our wanderings. In Warsaw we spent time with Andy and Zanetta Rabczenko (some project possibities there, too). In Krakow, with Janusz Golas, Wawel, musical events, museums and a folk show.
Besides climbing in the Tatra Mountains and a day-long bus tour to Slovakia, we spent time with his dad, Stan, his wife, Morgan and their 5-year-old Andrezj.

I recently delivered a much-improved version of Pedalong to Northwestern University Professor David Brown. I along with David, and his company – Kineadesign.com – will shortly be writing an SBIR grant proposal requesting funds for further developing, testing, clinically researching, and ultimate commercialization of Pedalong. David is a leading stroke rehab researcher and already has several pedaling devices in his lab.
Independent of this proposal, we are planning to build two more Pedalongs for testing here in Chicago and I am instructing my colleague in Krakow to proceed with building two there. (I have already paid for that work.) If we design for installation on Whirlwind Wheelchair's RoughRiders, we may have worldwide compatibility.
