[RC] Mr Roger Yohe update - matt medeiros

As of 2:30 pm  today,Roger was still in ICU at Sutter Roseville Hospital.I had a brief talk with him and it went like this,"well Matthew,I almost became fish bait.Another 20 feet and I would have fallen off the ledge 300 ft. down to the river and they probably would have found me at Rucka Chuck.I am thankful that I am alive,because i was real close to being dead.I have some broken ribs, and they have me on pain meds for that,and a small laceration on my liver ,and a hole in one of my lungs.I am ok,I was lucky Matthew,and I still have a few more tevis rides left in me."
 
 
    I met Roger when I was 11 years old at the Briones Ride where we rode and finished together .We have been good friends ever since. I would like to wish him a speedy recovery  and thank the rescue crew that extracted him from the ledge,and then somehow transported him to the helicopter that was stationed quite aways away.                                                                                                                                        
                 Our thoughts and prayers are with you Roger,
