cost is free, just pm me your arrival details frankfurt.

my super fast audii a5, will try and have some fun. i got it up to 240km/hour.

next trip I think 260km/hour is a good goal.

I got some colorectal friends from australia coming over february march.

seriously pm me if interested, we can lineup travel dates and have some fun. 

I know the saunas, the operas, piano brs and markets.

a bit like chevy chase family european vacation.

My flight details are on the blog. I know all the questions to hassle the crap out of the wonderful german doctors.

I am selling all my expertese and services for $1, payable 10 years after you are NED. If the therapies don't work no pay. now thats the risk i am taking.

Its nice to have a few brave souls to travel with, think of it like a euro colon get together.

Just thought I would let you know todays newest plan.

two weeks and counting, i cannot wait.

hugs,

Pete

PS I will provide free maf 314 gcmaf to all my travelling friends.

PPS you got to be healthy, happy and a good skier, we plan to hit the slopes most weekends.

only a 3-4 day therapy week, then its fun fun fun. europe is amazing.

PPPS we got to take the black ski runs, even if you never skied before, risk is a part of the deal. If you want to play it safe, stay home. if you want to play hard come to germany. fun guaranteed, cure thats up to you and god.

LOL, Pete.  No saunas for me, everything else sounds good like skiing.

However, I did wish that the U.S. would have the tours to the German clinics that Australia has.  I hate travelling alone.

Ya never know who will take you up on this. :)

Will your family be joining you in Germany this time?

Glad that you are able to find the time for some enjoyable activities as you continue your treatments.

Hugs,

Marie who loves kitties

Pete - Maybe they'll put you in a commercial. I survived stage iv cancer and bought an audi - wooooooo yeaaaah!   paaarrrtyy!

for colorectal cancer, I picture a carload of middle aged male cancer survivors mooning the cameras as you spin out and speed off into the sunset. Hmm. Maybe that won't make prime time TV.  Maybe in Germany, but in the US the butt cracks would be fuzzy and edited.

we cannot take our survival to seriously, as I look back at my slightly extreme moments, i laugh.

if we have some fun, get a bit better. the goal has to be to live well today with no expectation of therapy success.

I had no positive dreams, and put no demands on any of my doctors. like will this work, whats the stats.

I just said do your best. of course I knew what they were doing, often day by day. but its about not stressing, its about relaxing and enjoying life. the top clinic food, the fellowship of terminally ill living together. when our days have a premium.

Karin, I love your humour thanks. sometimes we are a bit serious here.

the fuzzy butt club could be a good name for us, then again maybe not.

its crazy but imagine if what worked for me, actually worked for say another 5. now then we are on a winner.

we could completely bypass all the conventional medical system and just hire a jumbo. fill it each week, fly it germany. thats insane.

it could be a new reality tv series "Cancer Survivor" a mix between "I survived" and "Get about" a travel show downunder.

I am getting curious about how long it will take me to fill the audii leaving frankfurt on feb5, if at all.

hugs,

Pete

PS I must have credibility issues, I could not get many to join my walking post. Now I have a promising colorectal therapy, with curative potential and still no takers. It would be easier selling ice to the eskimos. alas, this aspect of the journey, and our responses to the challenges and opportunities along the way i find intriguing.

I floated my clinical trial idea, many months ago. now I have a verified prototype, me and still no takers. alas.

Hey, Pete. I appreciate your postings, and will keep your data on the back burner.  I might just try the vaccine.   Can't tour Germany right now but may end up going there for treatment.  In the US the major cancer clinics seem to be experimenting with immunotherapy vaccines but all I could find was info about how they're using them to treat melanoma, certain types of brain cancer, and leukemia. Nothing on colorectal.  It is being taken seriously, though, which is good.  Yesterday I went for a  PET scan and I had to fill out forms about what sort of treatment i was taking, and immunotherapy was one of the boxes to check, right along with radiation and chemo.  That was encouraging.  We'll get there eventually, I think.

Have fun in the Audi - if you're in Germany in May, I hope you partake in as much asparagus as possible. Springtime is nicer.  Cruise the Rhine, stop at beergardens, gnaw meat off bones and wash it down with good beer and apple wine.. life is good.  Go to Baden Baden and take curative baths..  And who needs to stay in Germany?  Once you're in Europe, I believe you can drive from country to country without any passport checkponts.  So go to Austria and Switzerland and go skiing...  there is so much you can do.

cheers

Karin
