Vail Daily letter: Hats off to Tred

Jack Forsyth
Pulaski, N.Y.

I just learned what happened to Tred Barta. I had a similar problem at age 61, three years ago. I shattered my spine and was paralyzed from the waist down. They weren’t sure I would walk again. I am walking – not without problems, but walking. I’m hunting again, as well. The point is, when asked what are my limitations, my answer is, “None. I just have to figure out how to do things differently.”

Looks to me like Tred is doing it, as well. Go for it. I just wanted him to know my hat is off to him, and he has my respect and prayers.
