Ten-man Stick Out of the Ford Near Sun Valleygreenspun.com : LUSENET : Smokejumpers : One Thread
Hi guys, I enjoyed Jack Helle's feature Ten-man Stick Out of the Ford Near Sun Valley, or as I prefer to remember it, "the Bear Gulch Disaster", since I spent a few leisurely days in the Ketchum Hospital with a broken leg. Thanks to Ken Wilder and other jumpers who tried, unsuccessfully, to visit my room in the hospital but were slam-dunked by the night security nurse because they were "loud, very dirty, and had obviously been drinking." Thanks for those memories too.
