What a long strange trip it has been

I have not posted in a while so I thought I would just put a bunch of photos up from the recent trip I took with Jnr and the Naughty Lawyer.

We had a really good time - even with my broken foot.

Lots of flying, lots of food, lots of new amazing people, lots of friends, LOTS of partying, and lots of traveling.

From the time Jonny met me in Seattle til the time we got back to LA we did around 21,000 miles of planes, trains, and automobiles... good times.

Special thanks to Guga and Semone, Konrad, Dan, Nixon (Moyes Brasil), Vix, Jnr, Jamie, Dustin, Kraig, Darren, Leonarda, Jon & Judy, Dave, and Amity for helping me with foot and making the trip so much fun.

With much regret and serious heartbreak I had to make the desision today not to fly the 2007 World Hang Gliding Championship. I made this decision while on my way to Texas today; nothing more heartbreaking than making the 18 hour drive to the worlds all the way sorting out someone to take your place. I have arranged the last two years of my life based on this and it is a real bummer that I will not be able to participate. Mike Barber will be taking my place.

My foot is just too un-stable. I tried a little walking without crutches yesterday and my foot was in pretty bad shape this morning. I still have stiches and besides the surgery I just had, I have a very severly sprained akle. I feel like I might could have sucked it up and flown but know I would have only lasted a few days and that would not have been good for the team - hang gliding is a very individual sport but this comp is a team event. It is going to be tough to standby and watch but I am still thrilled to be here and see all the amazing people I have met the past few years from around the world.

I am still very happy that I made the team in such a short amout of time and it is an accomplishment that I am very proud of - I will just have to wait til the 2009 worlds in France.

I will be here cheering on the US Team and driving for my good buddies the Australians. They have taken really good care of me in the past two years (and the past few days) and it's time to return the favor.

Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive the last few weeks - especially Jonny Durand who has made me ice packs, driven me around, loaded the car, and made me veggiemite sandwichs everyday.

We are going to have a good time here in Texas!

"Much better than a margarita..."

I had surgery on my foot yesterday to fix the bone I broke. There was a tendon from my leg attached to the broken part of the bone that was not going to allow it to heal quickly or properly so they put a screw in it and it is fixed. Now it is just a matter of recovering from the incision wound and the swelling.

I had never had surgery before and was a bit nervous. When I was wheeled into the OR I got even more nevervous because it all looked a bit serious. They put me on the table and told me they were going to give me a shot to relax me before giving me anesthesia. The last thing I remember is saying "this is much better than a margarita...", I woke up about an hour later with no knowledge of what had happened.

I have spent nearly the entire week of this comp in the hotel with my foot up and I am going a bit crazy... only a bottle of pain pills and the internet to keep me company.

Thank you to everyone for the comments, phone calls, and emails - I really apprecaite that.

Special thanks for Darren "Dazza" Darsey and Jonny "Jnr" Durand for being my nurses. Jnr has brought me a fresh vegemite sandwich everyday for breakfast - good friends are had to find and good to have. Those guys are great but Amity is my favorite nurse of all.

I still have every intention to fly the worlds and think that after going though this I should win the first day. ;)

Good news and bad news

The good news is that my new Moyes LitespeedRS 4 is AMAZING!!! It is the nicest looking and best flying glider I have ever had and there were many people drooling over it yesterday. Jonny and I both set up our new Moyes RS gliders yesterday on launch and you could just hear people talking. I launched the glider and immediately knew I was flying something very special. Talk to your local Moyes dealer to arrange a demo - you will be glad you did.

The bad news is that while I was loading my glider on the car yesterday I stepped off the bumper and landed wrong on my foot rolling my ankle and breaking my foot. Damaged landing gear two weeks before the worlds... bummer.

I have worked really hard and given up a lot to get here. I see ortho on Wednesday to see what options I have to stablize the landing gear. I am confident that everything will work out.
