Hoversled Continues To Reach New Milestones

Hoversled, the latest of filmmaker Steven Sohlstrom’s enterprises, is in actuality a life long passion. He first began to design hovercrafts in the early 1980’s and in 1987 had a hovercraft he constructed of pine boards and aluminum sheets  on display as a 4-H project at the Benton County fair. 20 years later, he envisioned the concept of the battery powered Hoversled and within months, had a working prototype. Today, the current encarnation of hoversled sports powerful brushless motors, a lift capacity surpassing 200 pounds and a weight less than 15 pounds. Very recently, Sohlstrom achieved the seemingly impossible when he coasted to the bottom of the local sledding hill while it was completely free of snow, immediately proving that the sport of hoversledding is for every season and worldwide. The Hoversled is currently available in two configurations: The Exo S70 $399 and the Exo T65 $469.

STEVEN SOHLSTROM: AUTHOR, FILMMAKER, DIAGNOSED WITH BRAIN TUMOR REQUIRING IMMEDIATE SURGERY

  Hi everyone. An unexpected CAT scan revealed a brain tumor ,yesterday, large enough to warrant immediate surgery (next wednesday). I feel in good, hands and I am not scared, but know there will be side effects warranting a few weeks of post-op therapy…risk of stroke, etc… Im concerned about it effecting my writing ability ,of course, because Iam having trouble hitting keystrokes….slicing a chunck of my brain out in that center of concentration center propabably won’t help. I am in good spirits….maybe it all hasn’t hit me yet… I was told to apply for Social Security and advised that I shouldn’t plan on any sailing quite soon. That about made me cry. The technical description of the tumor made made evident of the risks in removing it…and had an afternoon meeting with a bright young speech pathologist who was very reassuring that I was coming a from a great starting place in respect to articulation………..I studied the MRI’s again just now….how the heck are they going to get that safely away from my brain and out of my skull? I have no idea how I felt no symptoms. At least I’ll finally get a new haircut. MORE UPDATES AND CORRESPONDENCE CAN BE FOUND ON MY PERSONAL FACEBOOK PAGE…. Images forthcoming:   Speech adversely affected. I am improving daily since the second surgery (yesterday…when a late ER visit prompted immediate surgery…where excess blood removed) Difficulty was expected with speech. I guess its the medication. I anticapate I full recovery. Its called something like Aphasia. Mayo Clinic definition : Aphasia is a condition that robs you of the ability to communicate. It can affect your ability to speak, write and understand language, both verbal and written. Aphasia typically occurs suddenly after a stroke or a head injury. I am convinced that the medication to prevent the brain from swelling was causing this. The surgeons and the nursing staff are taking excellent care of me…and I am grateful for them. I can’t thank them enough for being patient with me.   “SHIPWRECK STEW” ALSO AVAILABLE AT THE PAPER COLLECTOR GALLERY IN DOWNTOWN ST.CLOUD IN PAPERBACK! eBook Shipwreck Stew Steven Sohlstrom $2.99
