Best wishes for a full recovery. It could have been much worse. After reading other reports it seems there was nothing he was doing wrong and the accident was unavoidable.

I remember the roads back home doing that in the summertime. I think of few of them down here are just made with the ramps.

Good to hear he's going to be ok.

Global warming? So what if my kids never see a polar bear. I never saw a dinosaur and I'm ok.

30 feet high and 100 feet long in the air? That IS flying. Glad he'll be ok.
