Jay Mountain..many,many thanks

last monday, July 9th, my wife and I and my 2 children hiked Jay mountain..But this is not a trip report.Unfortunately on our way down , my wife suffered a very serious and scary ankle injury which required 11 screws and a couple of plates to put back together.Sadly , our days of hiking together in the Adirondacks (or anywhere else) may be over.With all that happened that afternoon I never got to say thank you to each of the wonderful men and women who came to our aid.I don't want to think what may have come of that day without you all.I'm hoping that someone who was there that day will read this or one of the regular readers here will pass on my message.I guess until something like this happens ,we(I) don't give too much thought to the people who may have to rescue us but rest assured I do now.Your professionalism and kindness will not be forgotten..A very sincere thank you from my entire family...Robert

I hope the hiking days aren't over for you. It's amazing what they can do these days. I now have a pin, a small plate, & a bolt in my left wrist, from three years ago, and it's as strong as ever.

I'm on board with the others, stay optimistic and think positive! She may very well come back sooner than you think. My dad hiked and paddled well into his 90's, this with a new hip, new knees, among others.... granted we did not tackle Marcy, but we still had some great, enjoyable, pain-free trips. Hope you are all back at it soon !

PS: the folks helping you are true heroes, glad they were there to assist.
