...could I be rude and ask how or why you got your new and improved legs? Just wondering is all...
You didn't hear about it ?
It was All over the news ...
My girlfriend cut them off, so i Wouldn't run away . She watched the movie Misery , then
read about Bobbitt ; & thought it would be a Good way to keep me around !!
Had a BAD day on my Hang glider ; then turned my lower legs into tapioca pudding
on the landing. It was a foot launched Tow and i forgot to hook in to the glider. Actually
i Did hook in but the wind died so i unhooked & sat down for 10.
Then the wind picked back up and i didn't hook back in.
The bridle was an
over and under so i couldn't just let go. I went for my reserve but the bridle was
covering the chute handle.
So Now i know what the gazelle feels when it's getting eaten by the lion :
"absolutely Nothing" ------ it was a total mental disconnection from the body.
actually felt Way better than the Morphine they gave me for the $12K helicopter
ride to the ER.
I went from # 4 in the world in ACRO on a HG
The worst pilot on the planet ; & it only took about 8-seconds to do it. (sigh)
I got a WAY better appreciation for Everything now !!
YES i still fly HG's and PG's ; but even at 16,000'ASL like last summer, i don't forget about
how bad things could go, if i let my guard down again.
Sorry to hear about GIN kites going under ...
