i got inspired from listening to lots of SRV today. Hope you guys did this!
My wife was there too .... She even saw them preparing to leave. By the time of the accident she was half way home to Madison, WI .... She didn't hear what happened until the next morning. Still remembers the date too ! Really, REALLY Sad !Sadly and strangely, I was there that night at Alpine Valley, and saw the helicopters parked there, and wondered if anyone was crazy enough to try to fly in this crappy weather......
