Darwin wasn't always right

Postby Glimmerjim » Tue May 06, 2014 2:53 pm

This is something that happened to me and my dog a few weeks ago. I was really hesitant about telling anyone at first, but I posted it somewhere else so now it's no big deal.
Have fun laughing at the idiot in your midst! :no:

Well Jim, I'm sure glad you're okay. But you got to tell me, what made you think you could climb that bluff? :lol3:
It's all true, as far as I know.

That was really you? :eek: :no:

Just glad neither you or the dog didn't get hurt.

I am much younger than you are and would not try that with a dog in tow.

Note : I did not say I would not try it.

Thanks buddy. Ya know, it just turned into a challenge. I would take little broken branches, jam them into the bank at a 45, and get one little step out of it. Stuff like that that somehow became just a exercise in outwitting it. I've never really even been that big on heights, so I was really testing myself a lot, too. But, like most things, for example DHC, it ended up outwitting me! :lol3: Thanks for the good thoughts, botiz. I appreciate them! :thumbsup:

:lol3: Well said, scaup! You're right though, having my girl with me complicated the whole thing. I'd have to gain a few feet, reach down and help her, then throw her up to the next level. :no: I guess that's why I was not nervous as I was more worried about her than me. She was a trooper, though! :lol3: Everyone paid way more attention to her than me. I told some other people where I posted it that a FD Lt gave me a ride back to my vehicle when it was over. As I am starting to leave he says "Wait a minute. Let me get a picture. I say ok and go to stand by him and he says "No, not you. Your dog!" :lol3:

Is your wife still letting you out of the house off a leash?

I am glad you are both ok.

The FD Lt. had it right. He got a picture of the good looking one.

Same here. I always pictured you as being older, thinner, balding. More grandfatherly looking I guess you'd say.

Earlier comment about the dog being the innocent one goes here. :lol3:

The dog would not have stayed put once Jim was gone. Dead dogs do not play well on the news these days.

Next time take the stairs!

Next time you want to test your 'fear of heights', let me know. There's a spot on the American River maybe 35-40 miles upriver from your last adventure I can show you that has a ledge you can lay down on and look down ~800 feet straight down, and out about 400 yards it drops 1,800 feet below you to the river. I've gone out there in the fall to watch the redtail hawks circle around waaaayyy down below me.


15/20 years ago some guy either slipped or decided to end his life out there, took Search and Rescue about a day to find where he landed. They had to rappel from a CDF helicopter to get his body out three days later.
