      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Kurt injured?

Recommended Posts

Yes, Kurt was injured yesterday and is in Harborview ICU. I don't really want to post details now, especially as I don't know if I would get them right, but crazyjz and I will be going to see him this afternoon. Say a prayer for him if you do that sort of thing.

I just talked to Mark McKillop and I can share this much at this point:

 

Yesterday Kurt had an accident at work where he fell off a ladder and landed on his head. The injuries are serious. He had a few operations last night, and the current doctor's prognosis is upbeat. Kurt's parents are there, as Mark and some friends are going to try to visit Kurt this afternoon.

 

As a board administrator, I'm not going to tolerate people posting crap about Kurt through this time. I know Kurt is a light hearted individual, but this is not a light hearted matter. You can have fun with Kurt when he posts again here, but until then keep the B.S. spray out of this thread and any thread about Kurt. I am very serious about this.

 

As for anyone wishing to visit Kurt, we will announce how that will be possible later. For now, just try to send your best thoughts his way or whatever way you cope with these types of situations.

Thank you for guiding this thread; I agree with this direction and appreciate moderator's help in this.

I met Kurt for the first time this year at the Ski Fest and had a few good brews and laughs with him. As far as I'm concerned he's A-Okay in my book and I hope he gets back at it as hard or harder than he has in the past. Here's to a few more brews in the future dude bigdrink.gifbigdrink.gif

 

Get well. thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

Yes, agreed. I again vote for a specific accident forum where no spray is allowed, period.
