Johngil and wife in hospital after head on car crash

[news link cleared on request]

John and wife are in a hospital in Santa Barbara after a head on collision with another car on their way to San Luis Obispo about 1:30pm today.

If you know John and Heidie drop him a text with your thoughts or PM for his cell number. John think's he'll be getting out of the hospital by Monday but his wife is likely to be there longer.

The other car's driver and passenger were killed in the collision.

Please join me in wishing them a speedy recovery.

I'll be heading up to the hospital tomorrow. Will keep everyone posted.

That 154 can be a bad ass road. Good thing they were not on the motorcycle.

I'll be helping him get some stuff out of the truck when possible. It's in Buellton.

Thanks guys.
Long story short, we are going to survive.
Heidi has a badly broken foot, fractured C2 and fractured L2.
I have a badly broken foot and a fractured L3.

I could use someone's spare iPhone 5 charger.
I'm still wondering why we're alive.

So you can experience another day for your local FF's to razz the shit out of you.

Get well soon!
