    I was talking to my drafting teacher one day, and somehow he started talking about books. He briefly explained about this book called "Between a rock and a hard place". It sounded quite interesting. Looked at the bookstore, 40 bucks to buy. So I'll check at the library soon.
    Anyone read it? It's about I THINK a guy goes into a mine or cave and a rock falls on his arm. Eventually he has to cut it off, and still wakl 8 miles to find help.

    i wouldent dignify him by buying the book.

    i am sorry what happined to him but he was a bit of a moron.

    i saw where it happened, i dont see why he stuck his arm there.
    or why useing ropes and tackle he couldent have gotten it off.

    he when climeing by him self with old ecuipment and DIDENT TELL ANYONE WHERE HE WAS GOING OR WHEN HE MIGHT BE BACK.

    want to read a good book about the out doors but still tragic?

    read IN TO THE WILD. or IN TO THIN AIR.
    same auther couldent say his last name to save my life never mind atempt to spell it.

    Well, don't hate him, but don't love him. Every single firefighter of policeman deserves more respect. How mny fireman are out ther working with massive burns? How many policemen are out ther working with gunshot wounds?

    It's easy to say this when your arm isn't stuck. You might want to use a spell checker before you go calling other people morons.

    i never ment to say it is an easy thing to do that sucks bad what happened to him.


    But is if took my stock suspention suburban with crappy tires a half tank ofgas, a small spare, a 30 in hi lft, but no lug wrench, a days worth of food and water. no cell or radio, and did the rubicon ( or some othere hard way off the beaten track trail) by myself with out telling anyone where i was going or when i would be back. would YOU call me smart to do so?
