Getting caught in a riptide in the Bahamas. Being a Kansas boy I had no idea to swim parallel to the beach.

Took some waves going offshore in our 17' center console and busted a hole open in the hull. Started taking on water and we were about 3-5 miles from the inlet. We limped back to shore and thank God our bilge was working.

When I was about 17 me and my high school ex were driving down a county road doing about 60mph and it had just finished raining, so roads were slick. She passed out on the drive and I have tendencies to fall asleep at the wheel. Needless to say, I zonk out and wake up quickly when I realize I drifted off the road. I whipped the wheels back left hard then over correct to the right and send the truck into a 360 down the road and into the ditch on the opposite side. It was the middle of the day and no vehicles were around and surprisingly no damage to the truck. I put it in 4wd to back out of the ditch and kept on driving down the road. That was very frightening.

A number of years ago I was backpacking in Colorado with my wife. We stopped by a lake to set up our camp and then take an afternoon "nap". While we were setting up a group of guys walked right through our camp and didn't say much other than they were planning on camping where we had set up. The people set up on the other side of that lake, about 200 yards across from us and then proceeded to start target shooting for most of the afternoon. That evening right as it was getting dark we went to the lake to get some water to wash our dishes and the people yelled at us to leave or they'd kill us. Forgot to mention that when they walked by earlier that day they were carrying a rifle and a couple pistols. I only had a 40 caliber pistol on my hip with one 10 round magazine and had no desire to get into a gun fight, especially with three guys with a rifle. We grabbed our stuff, threw it in our backpacks and within minutes hightailed it down the mountain. If you've never tried walking through a marsh or boulder hopping at night without a flashlight (didn't want to draw attention to our location), I'd recommend you don't. We got the sheriff up in the morning who rode up on horseback and arrested them. Apparently, another person had also called that almost got shot in the head (bullet whizzed by and missed him).

Locked&Loaded wrote:When I was 18 a bunch of my buddies and I went to Jackson Hole Wyoming to camp for a few days and do a couple of river rafting trips. The first day we were there, we decided to load up our packs and go out on a day hike. It was July and it was hot and dry. After hiking for a few hours we came upon a stretch of the snake river. We were standing on the bank about 7 or 8 feet above the river. I was so hot and sweaty all I could think of was jumping in to cool off. From where we stood the river was very clear and looked to be very deep, so I dropped my pack, stripped down to my skivies and jumped in. As soon as I jumped in, I was pulled by the strong current into an eddy. There were sheer rock walls on both sides of the river and a short distance downstream the water was very rough and there were huge jagged rocks staggered along the river. I was literally swimming as hard and fast as I possibly could but soon realized I was not making any progress to get to a position where I could get out of the water. After swimming as hard as I could go for what seemed like forever, I could feel my strength and energy leaving me. I knew at that moment that this was most likely the end for me. I can recall every so often being able to look up and see the panicked faces of my buddies looking down at me. I could feel my legs and arms burning and beginning to fail and my head began to bob up and down below the surface of the water. I finally became so exhausted I couldn't do anything other than just be washed down stream. At the point where I felt that I was on the brink of losing consciousness, I slammed into a huge boulder and felt the searing pain in my ribs. Just moments later one of my buddies, who had tied a rope around his waist, came out into the river and grabbed hold of me while the 2 other buddies on the shore pulled us to safety.

I was so beat from that whole ordeal, I layed on the edge of the river and fell asleep for 4 hours.

Hard to explain, but that whole experience scared the hell out of me so bad, it literally changed my whole outlook on life and being grateful for every day I get.


Same thing for me after sinking the boat. :thumbsup:

Went off a cliff skiing a couple year ago (intentional) and caught my back tips on a rock and wound up falling quite a ways and landing on my head (not intentional). Life flashed before my eyes as I was falling and I ended up landing on my neck where it meets the base of my skull. Luckily I landed in a soft patch of deep snow which probably kept me from breaking my neck. Ended up with a really sore neck and a few sore ribs but was fine other than that.

I was putting the cover on my boat after the season and was pulling in the straps. One broke and I slipped and hit my throat on the rail of the boat. Thought I collapsed my throat. Felt like I wasn't gonna be able to breath ever again or swear at people I don't like.

He was so tangled in the cord every time she wod have a contraction it would strangle him. They figured it out eventually and took her in for a cesection. Now he's almost 3 and scrares me to death every day.

Same thing happened to my son at birth. Cord was around his neck 3 times. I had to scream at the nurse to go get the doctor when his heart rate was dropping too low during contractions. Stupid nurse said that was normal. Would've died without emergency c-section. :no: Almost did anyway. Was in ICU for 2 weeks.

Plane ride in a T-storm approaching Harrisburg, PA in a Canada RJ. Brutal winds and pounding rain. Thunder cracks loud enough to hear over all the jet noise. We were already pretty low when the plane took 2 sudden and very sharp dives and people were shrieking in fear. Yeah, that was a good time.

Oh yeah.. how could I forget the birth of my son. Long story short, they let her push for eleven-teen hours after an epidural. Finally they decided to go C-section and the anesthesiologist overdosed her. The baby's heart rate monitor began to plummet down to a beat every few seconds. All hell broke loose with shouting and panic as they started wheeling her to the OR and were throwing scrubs at me to put on. I heard one nurse yelling they couldn't find the OB/GYN surgeon. He showed up, sliced, baby cried, apgar test thingy was a 10 and he's in college now. But I still shiver thinking about it.

I was about 7-8-9 and we were building my parents house got my first four wheeler drove around . Then decided to go on the dirt and we had just gotten a hurricane and washed away a bunch of big runoff holes. Drove over one fourwheeler flipped on top of me but I fell in the hole and the fourwheeler was too big to fall on me. Would have killed me or broken many bones I was a small child at that age 50-60 pounds now I'm 16.

Again me and my cousin were making a tree house and we decided to put a lazy boy inside the treehouse we made a pulley system and it came off the tree and anyways I was pulling the lazy boy into the house rope or pulley broke had it halfway in the window and almost pulled me out to the ground 20-25 foot. Ended up findin an old lazy boy and just putting it on the roof if i get time I will go take pictures of the treetop casino as we call it. Good times in there camping, seeing my first turkey, seeing my first fox.
