ditto on the yikes, glad you are safe.

How long you gonna be off the ridge? I'm planning on coming through in mid-May.

Cheers for flying an out-of-the-way spot. Glad you got back OK. I think the most important thing is just not to panic and to focus on the task at hand. Sounds like you handled it all extremely well--right on! We're all always playing for keeps, all the time. Easy to forget till something goes upside down!

Joe, can you go flying at Parker on May 29? I'm going to PSS Fest on 5-28, and I'm camping at a site in Wrightwood. I hope I can finally meet you at Parker. I may try Vincent Hill on the same day.

Hey Gary, take it from Cody WIlson -- be careful. It's truly amazing that you did your own triage and still managed to get yourself back to safety. If memory serves me, Cody wasn't so lucky. Glad you're both back flying. I hope to visit CO and SD someday soon, and I wanna look both of you guys up when I'm there.

Happy Flying ;-)

i crashed a JW into a yucca once, pierced it and threw it out again, little did i know it cut my aentenna too... lol...

about flying, im pretty sure i can... nothing big going on and think i'll be off work too...
