A note of gratitude ...
Thanks by John Faller


I would like to express my sincere thanks to all who assisted me at the scene of my accident, which took place at Castle Gorge on Sunday, 12 March.

Firstly, without the attention and care from the two American student doctors, Hadley Herbert and Ryan Schwarz, my story might have been a very different one. All those in the know who saw your handiwork on my leg thought you did a great job - a very big thank you!

Thanks also to Robbie MacDonald, George Christian, Leverne Hamilton, Eileen Botha and Moya Roniak for their TLC, attention and distractions! There were others at the scene who I am unable to identify thanks to you all too.

The Johannesburg Hiking Club wishes John a speedy recovery and we look forward to welcoming him back on the 'trail' once he has recovered.
