speed flying crash left me paralyzed but hasn't stopped me!

A little over a year ago I was in a speed flying accident that left me an incomplete c7 quadriplegic. This is a video of me proofing that life goes on after a life changing accident. Some day in the near future I would like to be in the air again. This is the link to my blog where I have it posted. Enjoy!

 I'm living in Minnesota right now but I am planning to move back to Missoula, MT in August. Thanks for the offer to come to your ranch. Once I am back out west I would love to come and check things out. Don't be shocked if I try and get ahold of you. Once again, thanks a lot

You are a champion Joe! Where are you located?
You're welcome at the Flystyle Ranch anytime you can get out man... We have a rad class III on the property and lots of great roads/trails for riding. We would love to get you flying again if you're interested my friend. Cheers!

Visit the Flystyle Ranch

Thank you so much for the kind words. It's strange going through this process. At first, with my recovery it was all about me. As I kept just doing my thing, which was work hard, stay positive, and seek out thrills and happiness again, I slowly began seeing how it was effecting the people around me. There is something about going about your life the way you always have, and finding out that it is starting to help others. It's a feeling that is completely indescribable, and something that I never want to give up. So once again, thank you for the kind words.

Oh yeah and I can't wait to start sit skiing. I have always thought that it looks like a lot of fun. Now I have a reason to try it!

Joe your story is truly inspirational and your progression is a testimony to your will and strength. Having a few friends that have gone down the rough road you have travelled, I am truly awestruck with your progression and maintenance of such a positive attitude. Keep up the good work as you a remarkable inspiration to those with and with out spinal cord injuries.
