Thanks for the reference to Colchuck Lake. I can remember swimming there on a hot day with chunks of ice floating in it. Yikes that was cold.

Congrats and thanks for sharing your stories. I appreciate S and R folks, although luckily never had to rely on them. It's nice to know folks like you are out there to help those in unfortunate circumstances (within or beyond their control).

Wow, that was one of the most enjoyable reads I've had on Trailspace. I loved the old school pics from the 70's and your homemade gear.
