GOOD NEWS:

Jim is cleared to come home to Maine within the next couple of days. He will be in the hospital for a couple of days and then moving to a rehab facility until he is ready to come home.  While Jim does have health insurance, the costs of an accident like this are huge and ongoing. besides the cost of his airlift back to the US and the hospital care, it will cost an amazing amount of money to get him back to his Maine home where he can begin his rehabilitation via Air Ambulance. And then the continuing doctor and nursing costs, which are not all fully covered.

A GoFund site has been set up in his name at the link below. If you have not already done so, please consider making a donation to this effort. This could have easily happened to any of us. The community has really stepped up to offer Jim and his family the help that they need. Thanks to all that have made a contribution.

Yrs, indeed, great news.  Thanks everyone who helped out on this.

Jim is back at his home and recovering well. as I understand it, things are moving along very well and he should make a full recovery.

Was thinking about Jim this week, probably because the last time I remember running into him was a similarly-humid August weekend after doing the Book (and NOT in good style, mind you) with sweat dripping into my pits.

Anyone in the know about how his recovery has gone?  Fully-healed?  Climbing again?  Racing motocross? MMA fighting?
TIA.

Dale

ETA:  thanks very much for the update, Dave; even tough guys take time to mend.  Will touch base FMI and ask folks to keep sending good vibes (although if he's any kinda engineer at all, Jim wouldn't believe in empirical ephemera like 'vibes', right?).   Dale

If it's overhanging, I'm probably off-route.
