    its always the dumbass going off in to the back country


    from the story i read earlier it said he was conscious at the scene and conscious and agitated on the way to the hospital
    sounds to me like it could be a medically induced coma to reduce risk of further complications (my own assumption)

    I read he was skiing with his kid and fell and hit a rock, but had a helmet on. But who knows. Liam Neesons' wife died from a similar type of injury a few years back. She was able to get up and walk away after the accident. Hope he recovers.

    Hope he pulls through.

    Kind of selfish, but I really want to get his autograph still. I have an instruction manual to a Tamiya 1986 CRX Si model kit with both Mario Andretti's and Helio Castroneves' autographs on it, I really wanted Schumacher on there too.

    Mario said he used to have a 1G CRX and loved it, and Helio recognized it and said they're good autocross cars. :)

    Every time I ride I go off into the trees. Best skiing is there.

    Same here. Back country is more fun and more challenging. Just have to take your time and know your ability. When I saw this, I assumed he wasn't wearing a helmet. Damn. He must have went down pretty hard.

    I've heard that people who wake up after 6 months have a steep road of recovery ahead of them. Hope he makes a speedy recovery.
