Here's an update. Spoke to Seth late last week, and he is doing well and on the mend. He has done some physical therapy, and has begun working at the job he was hired for just before the mishap. He has also been up flying in his RV too. Good progress, though he's still dealing with pain. He's pleased with strength and mobility improvements. We laughed a bit when he he told me he had a lot of trouble early on, just trying to pour a glass of wine out of a big jug that was given to him as a get well present...and I said, ya know, tequila bottles are smaller and lighter! He's improved quite a bit since then!

I also told him about the Sport Class donation collection effort, and told him SARL and VAF members had really been rallying to his support. In addition to the large checks sent to Seth by both SCARA and SARL, the site was able to raise over $6,500 for Seth's medical expenses...pretty awesome, eh!! Turns out he had kind of unplugged a bit as he started the new job, so it was quite a surprise to him. He was pretty much speechless!

So nice work VAF family...you've made a big difference in the life of a fellow RVer in a time of need!

Doug, thanks again so much for the opportunity to help Seth with the reach of VAF...and for your personal donation to Seth as well...now I'm speechless!

Cheers,
Bob

Default THANKS

Hello VAF Family-

Guys and gals. Thank You So Much for all of the posts and support. I really have been disconnected for the last couple of months and when Bob told me I needed to get on here I was absolutely Blown Away by what I saw! It is incredibly humbling. I usually feel I can write and express myself quite well but suddenly do find myself speechless and feeling I can't adequately express my thanks and gratitude. Thank You All So Very Much!

I need to single out Bob and thank him here. I truly look up to him as an aviator but take away aviation, and Bob is just an amazing human being. He has been great to not only me but the Sport Class and most recently again showed his true colors while taking point in keeping everyone informed of the condition of another aviator friend of ours who was involved in a crash last weekend. It's been a tough few months for a lot of us. Thanks Bob!

Truly humbled and so appreciative. Thanks
Seth Baker

ps One correction from Bob's last post...it was a Whiskey Jug...just couldn't let that go

Just ran across this thread. When I went to the link to donate I found a message that the donation was closed. Sorry I missed it. I hope enough was donated to make a real difference.
