alex and me started with no step forward our tandem parachute…
the wind was really good.

i took many pictures from the northwall of the eiger. so if someone wanted to climb this famous mountain just give me an email. i will send you the detailed pictures.

You live and learn…

January 16th, 2012

Hi extreme flight casualties!
This Day i resumed work after 14 weeks of rehabilitation of my accident with my parachute at the burgspitz on the first of december 2011.
I hiked up with 3 friends to the burgspitz(1429m asl) near weyer.
it was a great day for parachuting.
after my friends started with their parachute i decided to go to the summit and started there my hybrid parachute (17m²).
there were no clouds but i could see the wind was blowing uphill. so felt good to start my glider at the steep channel.
the glider shot very fast to the front and something to the left side. i decided not to stop the launch process and ran below the glider.
i started to fly but then i got hit by a rotor (lee) and i sank, then i had to turn right very fast otherwise i hit the trees. so i did a pendulum into the steep channel where i hit by the left. aaaaaaaaaa.
i realised that there was something with my foot so i packed my glider into my backpack and hiked up about 20m’s to the summit because i had no mobile access.
at the summit i was able to reach the mountain rescue which sent me the christophorus 15. the christophorus team did a nice service and so i had a nice flight to the hospital.
after the ct and xray i heard the diagnostics that i had a talus fracture of my left foot with torn ligament. the doctor told me it was a serious injury and it was not sure to get the full function after recovery again. it was a shock for life.
10 days later dr. charly w. did a great job and reconstructed my ancle with 2 screws and one drill wire to fix the talus with the heel bone. after 8 weeks of immobilization of my left foot they team of the accident team removed the drill wire with a second operation.
at 4th. oder december i drove to althofen for 3 weeks for rehabilitation to learn again walking after 10 weeks walking on crutches.
i was happy to got a nice room mate. he was arno from vienna. he’s motorbiking on his mind. so we got along wonderfully and had a lot of fun while eating and sining carinthian folk songs with our ladies from carinthia ida and angela. the time was great because of hard training and great progress.
at christmas eve we celebrated a nice party with a good gala dinner. yummy. at new year’s eve marlene and me we did a bivouac beside the breitofener hütte at 1520m above sea level in a wonderful winter landscape. thank you for this unforgetable time.
thanks to everyone at reha althofen. i felt being in very good hands.
i also have to say thank you to rainer my physical therapist who did a wonderful job with looking after me.
Health isn’t everything, but everything is nothing without health.
Take care! See you in the air….

Mustagh Ata Ski-Expedition

August 31st, 2011

This sommer i did a mountain expedtion in china to the mustagh ata (7546m) with ruefa bergreisen.
my plan was to go up by skies to the summit and fly down with the speedglider.
the chances were about 30% to fly down from the top. nevertheless i wanted to try this action.
i got a new glider from swing – the hybrid sport 17.
so we started at 27th of july in munich and flew over moscow to bishkek in kirgisia.
our guide alex – we called him “manager” from the mountain agency tien shan travel picked us up at the airport on the morning and we drove directly to naryn which is a city on the silk road. on the next day we drove to the touragat pass (3752m) and entered china after many checkpoints (in kirgisa we had 4 to manage or wait….)
at the chinese boarder we had to carry all our luggage some meters over the border line to the already waiting truck.
fortunately the streets in china were better then in kirgisia so we had a more or nice time on the road with our new guide (mr. kong) from the mountain agency in kashgar.
after a x-ray session from the whole luggage at the chinese checkpoint we arrived at half past 7 in kashgar at our hotel. first we had to carry up our luggage to the room, but then we were happy to enjoy our first dinner at the chinese restaurant. a strange thing was, that it is normal too bring the drinks from the shops to the restaurant…. good idea – isn’t it?
we did nice and hot sight seeing in kashgar city and bought the rest for the expedition.
on saturday night suddenly there drove amor-cased water gun cars across the streets. on the morning we heard that there were some terror attacks from the uygur people with 8 murdered people. thats an ethnic minority group here. here in xinjiang region there are about 50 minority groups. you can imagine the different culture what you can see here. some days later there was an terror attack in kashgar with 14 murdered people. crazy. nobody recognised here in europe.
nevertheless we reached on the karakorum highway after a long travel the village subashi (3726m). at the evening we could see the massive mountain mustagh ata.
here we are…..
we had a nice dinner outside and enjoyed the great energy from the mountain. the night we slept in a yurt which was great and warm with our sleeping bags.
on tuesday the 1st of august the camels get packed and after breakfast we hiked in 4 hours to our basecamp (4530m). during the day the temperature rise up to 25°C. what a hot area here. but when clouds has covered the sky the temperature falled down rapidly…..
next stories coming soon – now its weekend.
