Major bummer about Jim. Please extend my best wishes for recovery. Was it epic getting him out?

Hmm pretty open. I was thinking about climbing mid week maybe and been trying to organize touring partners since my sled is still on the injured list. I must warn you though I snore so bring your earplugs ;)

A BIG shout out to the volunteers of North Shore Search and Rescue ! ! !

After wrecking my knee, Greg enlisted some snowboard youts who post holed a trail that allowed us to grovel back up to the top. By then the NSSAR were at the top and a BIG thanks to Stan for doing all the first aid checks in a casual but pro manner.

Tim Jones was next up and we decided it was easiest and best that I bum slid down the slopes and hobbled with help through the flats. a patroller on a sled took me to the parking lot from the top of the XC area. Greg did great pack management and early logistics which made things smooth for everyone.

Again, a HUGE THANKS to the NORTH SHORE SEARCH and RESCUE ! Really pro and I'm in their debt for helping me.

THANK YOU !

Jim, sorry to find out it was you I walked by at the first aid shack. You have some amazing terrain up there. Get fixed up and re-habbed.

Cool Bruce. I'd like to spend new years with Sandra so that would work well.

Was there a communication problem?


But good thinking, Greg, and good to see Jim standing, if with a little help from Tim. May recovery go well.

and good to see Jim standing,

The expression on his face is interesting. I can't tell if it's pain, or if one of the S&R guys slipped him a shot of morphine.

But, kidding aside, I'm sorry to hear this. Best wishes for a complete recovery Jim.

Rices... I like that ;)

I went for a little walk today.. I was supposed to be with Sandra but when we got off the gondola her highback was missing from one of her bindings so she went back to the truck to try and find it. I went on alone and made my way to the rock hard boot pack up the back of the glacier. Then I continued up Disease Ridge.

More soon. I'm gonna edit them a bit since I think they should turn out nice..
