Preview issue #32
Two-Lane Roads magazine has always been a one-man operation; and that one man - Loren Eyrich - had surgery for colon / rectal cancer, and needed to stay pretty near home for nearly a year for chemotherapy and radiation treatments. The treatments are now over, and I am very happy to be cancer free seven years later!
Please bookmark this website and check back for future updates. -L.E.
Two-Lane Roads magazine
22,262 gallons of gasoline
Countless barbecue sandwiches
Update February, 2009:
Since the last issue was published, I returned to the retail auto industry for 6 years, employed as comptroller for a group of used car dealers in Fort Lauderdale. I retired from the auto industry in October, 2008.
I would love to go RVing again someday, but I'm not sure if I can handle it. I have peripheral neuropathy in both legs, a side effect of chemotherapy, and I can walk only very short distances with the aid of a walker.
