Wait for us at the top, John. And thanks for being you.
Big John and I worked ProPatrol at Hidden Valley in l978-79. He was bigger than life in person! But not so big that he didn't get slammed when he deployed his parachute after tucking Spruce ski run. Not sure what he thought would happen, but what a sight seeing him swept off his skis. Thanks for the memories. Will miss you, SusieO
