    I'm glad you're okay, and thank you for sharing your adventure with us. But like Fronkey's escape from the ninja tree I can't let me wife read this or I'd never be allowed out in the woods again.

    I'm glad you're home safe, TZ. Hopefully you'll mend quick!

    What's the long-term prognosis for the hip?

    Keeping you head.

    Glad you kept your head and got out in one piece Tom.

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery. You'd better get started, I wouldn't want you to have to drive all the way here just to deliver Anne's fine cooking this fall

    Kudos to all that helped in your rescue
