Didn't Kauk bust his tibia in a MC crash a while back and he's ok?

This summer, Ron told me his leg has never been the same since the crash. There's no such thing as an okay broken bone that you come back from 100%. Always something a little funky afterwards.

Could happen to anyone. Heal quick Largo!
Most health insurance policies have an "out of pocket" cap on payments. Somewhere in the $5000-10,000 range. This type of event, even to a master, is exactly why we need universal coverage. I almost started a health care rant, but this is not the time or place. Feel better John.

The early to mid 50s seems to be a perilous time for some climbers. I ripped my right biceps off the forearm at age 50 and was out for a year (gave up bouldering); Bachar, Whillans, Edlinger and others came to tragic ends, and D'Antonio suffered a heart attack. I'm sure there are other such stories. And now JL has come to grief. I hope his pain (physical and financial) is not too great. And, yes, someone please verify the validity of the fund raising site - I recently encountered the FBI-Moneypak virus, and, boy, did that announcement look official.

Thanks for all the support. I'l make it through this.

Any "fund" was done without my knowledge and while no doubt well-intended is not the way to go. Nobody just gives money to a slush pot for people to spend on hot rods and lap dances or whatever.
Such a plan if needed will be way later. But I appreciate the thought.

Great to have friends.

Hey John,

Glad you're coming round.

So what are your injuries? And how did it happen?

We can't figure out how you decked in the gym, and we're tired of all of Riley's inferences. [well meaning though you are, Riley, it would be nice to know the facts]

How 'bout we hear it from the horse's mouth? How bout it, John?

Cheers,
Pete

I thought someone already posted that he was pinching a waffer (not a loaf) and his grip gave...

Isn't that what happened or is it somehow more complicated???...

When JB and JL came down to southern Colorado to visit me in the late 1970s and sat around the kitchen table, my wife later remarked "They were like young Greek Gods!"


Draw on that power, JL!

So maybe that is still the meds talking but it seems that JL is saying something like "If I won the Lottery, the first things I'd spend it on..." hahahah

Besides, what's wrong with hot rods or lap dances?

John,

I've been getting updates through Erin and others. Hope things continues to improve as fast as possible and as well as possible given the circumstances. Be sure to reach out if there is anything folks can do. Not sure if I should text you or email or what, as I'm not sure what you've got access to. Let me know if I can bring anything over (books, company, whatever).

Hope Dean's "Largofest" fundraiser happens anyway. Great excuse for a party. If you need the funds for bills, I'm sure legions would be willing to chip in; and if you don't, well, it's a good reason for a party when you are out of the hospital and on the mend.
