Just wanted to acknowledge the Eteamers that removed my wreckage from the canyon below the E. Pretty daunting task after already completing their flights. Some of them aborted their flights because of the extraction helicopters involvement. Thanks to all that visited and kept my spirits from falling too far. My hospital stay was far from a pleasant experience, but did receive some super care from a couple of individuals. Recovery is well on it's way. Loads of discomfort from Broken ribs, sternum and femur. You might ask what did you do? Broke a lot of rules the biggest of which was mushing my launch. Right wingtip snagged a bush at end of launch and completed the stall and return to earth. Spun to the right contacting two large boulders. Glider took very little of the impact because of the angle involved. Dave Beardslee was instrumental at the crash site stabilizing me and assuring me help was on it's way. Severly wished I had a hook knife in my harness. Got hung up in the cables and the two of us were unable to unhook the carabiner. Rescue personnel arrived and pretty much destroyed most of my equipment with my blessings. Thanks to the Grand Ave fire dept, El Cariso Fire Dept and Hemet Helicopter Rescue folks. They all did their jobs well. many of my friends have rode the helicopter. I was hopeing never to share the experience. My chest mounted chute saved my life. Ok I/m done ranting see you all soon just not in flight any more.
