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.

Dear fellow climbers. John Long requested that we make a brief statement regarding his accident that occurred on 11/29/12 at approximately 8:30pm. John wanted us to confirm that he fell due to an unfinished knot, and suffered a compound fracture to the lower left leg. The rest of the details of the accident are John’s to tell.

Here is a direct quote from John, “Thank you to the Rockreation staff and members for keeping it together and not panicking in the face of a very scary situation. I consider it my best moment when I saw the gravity of the situation and was somehow able to keep it together and receive the support of the Rockreation Staff.”

On behalf of the Rockreation community, we want to wish our friend a speedy recovery, and let him know that we love him and are sending him good energy.

Here is a link to his full statement:

i once clipped an anchor set back and felt my harness part as is was just the velcro holding it.. I was lucky and snatched the anchors. Odds are tough to beat after so LONG..Wishing a rapid and stellar recovery!.
