Great write up, Becca. I'm glad it turned out well in the end. Thanks for sharing this story, it's sobering to think how one accident can become life threatening. I'm glad you are ok. Good for Luke, keeping his cool in a bad situation.

Thanks everyone! It truly was a life changing event, but one I feel made me a better person and outdoorswoman in the long run. We are continually grateful that neither Steve nor I was injured worse, and that the USCG was able to get in there and get me out. We always took along the Sat phone and emergency equipment before, and now we haven't needed any extra convincing that it needs to stay with us on every trip, all the time. Accidents can happen to any of us very quickly, and then you really only have your wits and the equipment on your person to try and remedy a scary situation.


Thank the Lord you are safe, Titanium-Girl! :)
Ha ha, yep! As a friend reminded me, that rod is now added weight I will always have to carry!

Now go back and put the smack down on a big haus billy! That was a very real account of the whole situation. I won't say I enjoyed reading it because your a friend and I'd never wish that on anyone I care about. I'm glad your recovered and straping on your boots again. I'll see you again this fall when I'm putting mine on again.

Thanks all for your kind words. Really grateful its behind us now, and I am finally feeling like I am in even better shape than before "my big slide". Very much looking forward to the return trip-- can't let that goat get the last word!
