Spoke with Tom today as he is finally home in Santa Cruz. He broke 5 ribs, punctured a lung, had a tube inserted and is just now up on his feet. He took a helicopter ride to the hospital after dark (vs. the truck) and will probably recover stronger than ever unless he gets pissed and starts riding his mt bike too early.
Great shots and narrative btw
