Re: Congratulations Joe Greblo on Rob Kells Memorial Award!!!

Joe, congratulations on the Rob Kells Award. I endorse every one of the kind remarks in the USHPA article on your dedication to our sport. I only wish I had been asked to comment. In my book, you’re the real-deal hanggliderguy.

Barton's at Kaiser Hospital

I spoke to Barton today. I have his cell number, but I'm not publishing it here because I'm not sure he wants a lot of phone calls right now. His prognosis seems good, but he sounds like he's heavily medicated. Go figure.

He's not at SF General, but at Kaiser

The slide rope broke on my older-model Woody Valley when I was flying over Little T road, and my backup strap was so long I had to hang by my armpits over the control bar. Rather than try to land that way, I threw the laundry. Since then, I check that rope regularly, more often than every six months.

I visited Ron for an hour this afternoon. He looks very well physically but he slept for the first 30 minutes. So I just spoke to him all that time, with very little reaction from him. I know he wasn't understanding what I was saying, but the important thing is for him to hear a voice, and hope that...
