SWT....an amazing story.  Thanks for sharing.
And congrats to your friend.

Some people in this world have it.  The power to persevere after a tragedy.
Sometimes I question what my mental or physical state would be after a tragedy, accident, or loss of a loved one.
This guy's got it.  Big up to him.

I'm getting a "Could Not Be Found" Search Page. Nontheless I congratulate you too Craig. A guy I went to college with was a world champion handicap skier and he could outski most of the people he came across.

Craig its people like you that give many of us healthy perspective. "Great Achievement" indeed.

I know when something implies there might be something wrong with you some of us take offense, but with all due respect we have to ask: What in hades are you doing being friends with a hippy like SWT?

Sorry, my local paper has pulled the free link.

Here's a video of his story from "The Season". It's pretty graphic and not for the squeamish.
