Not me.

Aron Ralston.

The guy that got caught his arm caught between a rock and a hard place, went almost a week before having to cut it off, and then walked out and lived.

A survivor.

I came home last night and TLC was doing a show on him with Tom Brokaw. I remembered about him cutting his arm off and was about to switch the channel, I didn't want to have a second night of nightmares, but I caught the part about him going to CMU, double major, worked for Intel, on the fast track. A geek, and he walked away from that life.

He likes to do things apparently, not sit inside at a desk. I guess I should have realized the intelligence it took to stay alive in such a dire strait, but when he was in the news, that was the center of the story, just that he cut his own arm off, but this guy is so much more.

His parents must be proud.

He had some great quotes... "I go looking for Adventures and Risk so I can feel alive, And I don't tell anyone where I am going. It's just dumb"

He's still doing solo climbs, but I bet he tells people where he will be now!

After watching that I have really been missing being able to go caving.

There a bit scarce in Florida unless you dive, and that's a bit too risky for me.

Maybe skydiving! LOL

I mean I am sure you are correct, and maybe it is more common over there since you have such nice mountains, but he was probobly meant to die that week.

He's still rock climbing.

Maybe that means more to me cause I used to love to climb when I wa a kid, but never anything higher than 150 feet.
