Wody Stark was killed instantly in a fall yesterday in Real Hidden Valley on the Great Burrito.

Al Kwok fell about 70 ft and is recovering from broken ribs.

I'd like to thank the two that got Al down. The EMTs and the doctor that showed up within minutes The Park Service SB Air and all the SAR people that helped.

I'd like to especialy thank Ryan and Steve. I don't know how I would have dealt with it with out a couple of familliar faces around.

There will be plenty of time for analysis and speculation about what happened. Out of respect for his children, Tia and Woody Jr. please forego that for now.

Thanks.

God rest his soul. This is a very, very sad day. Our world is diminished with his leaving us.

Oh no!!! This is awful!

I'm so so so so sorry!


Can't really think right now. It's such a shock. For all the times we traded BS on here I couldn't help but really like him... I never doubted he was a kind and gentle soul. I just assumed we'd meet some day and get a long great.

This is horrible and I'm at a loss for words or even thoughts that make sense. It doesn't... how could it?

The Woody Stark. The Joshua pioneer?

Christ, I grew up on his routes out at the Tree.

A very sad day indeed. Condolences to all.

That is truly, truly tragic news. When I saw the name of 'Curtis Stark' in the article, the thought quickly passed through my head- is that Woody?- then I shook it off.

Too unreal to believe. My greatest condolences to his family, and to the many, many people he called his friends here on ST.

Please be careful out there, everyone.
