Sorry. My Freudian slip was showing.

Wow, I think I'd go into a full on panic and probably cause it to collapse on me.

he was headed for Mount Pattison with a man he had met on the lift.

sounds like that wasn't the crevasse he wanted to go in.

"Man falls into 160 foot deep crevasse"

He fell into Oprah's ass?

Calmly? How many drugs was he on?

How could he walk, dragging those massive brass balls around?

Obviously he had just come from Subby's mom's house.

wow i thought for sure there would be a 'your mom' joke in there somewhere.

something like

Scary: Man falls into 160 foot deep crevasse. Hard core: Calmly takes pictures while waiting to be rescued, walks away uninjured. Your mom: happy to get some action.

So that's what happened to Ozzie Smith.

If he was cold he could have just opened up a tonton and crawled inside.

So, it appears we have found The Most Interesting Man In The World's long lost brother.

Get that man a Dos Equis.

Popov was 50-60 meters behind his younger companion when he saw a long crack ahead of him. He approached cautiously and started probing it with his pole to see if it was a crevasse and how strong the snow bridge was.

So the "young companion" (nudge, nudge) had already crossed the crevasse when dude started probing it with his pole? If you want to be safe out in crevasse country you go in a team of 3 or 4 and rope yourselves together.
 
2012-05-13 11:08:24 PM
I love Les Stroud, and I still say one of the scariest things he did was walk across a glacier, alone of course, with crevasses everywhere. Glad this dude survived.
 
2012-05-13 11:14:26 PM
This is me at the bottom of the crevasse [click]
This is me looking up at the top of the crevasse [click]
This is me about to die (hi mom!) [click]
Oh yeah, these are the guys who saved me [click]

I don't always drink, but when I do, I drink Dos Equis.

I hope they send him a bill for the rescue costs. I'm really sick as a taxpayer having to pay to rescue all these people who insist on skiing in the back-country and then get into trouble. The regular ski hills have marked runs for a reason!

Imagine if he had gotten crushed and they found his body after the thaw, along with his camera...pictures intact.

Eerie.

Relax.
He is an American, but he is in Canada. No problem the government is happy to assist.

There's aaaaalways one.

Waaaaah! My tax dollars! Waaaah! Personal responsibility! Waaaah! I'm a dick! Waaaah! Waaaah! Waaaah! Taxes! Waaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!

1) This happened in Canada, a civilized country, so your taxes didn't pay dick.

2) Even in Canada, a civilized country, the majority of S&R comes from volunteers. And if the Army gets called in they love it. When they use their choppers it's great training for their troops. This is an excellent use of our tax dollars.

3) The actual amount of your personal taxes that fund the actual costs incurred in these rescues doesn't amount to diddley dick. That Latte' you are sipping probably costs more.

4) Those of us who DO like to hike and climb pay for numerous permits and trail passes every year that help greatly in covering these costs and maintaining our forests and parks, since people don't want their TAXES to go to such nonsense.

In other words: Shut up.

"And then it happened: the snow I was standing on collapsed and before I knew it I found myself at the bottom of a crevasse," he said.

He said it soon became clear that he wasn't at the bottom of the crevasse.

I'm sick of tax dollars going to human search and rescue operations.

Mobilize the army, navy, and the marines, give em cash, and have them locate my booze and whores! I know I lost them downtown somewhere...

It's easy to film being stuck in a crevasse when you know your partner is going for rescue.

Well put. Folks who say things like waste of tax dollars etc..don't quite realize the extent of volunteer search and rescue. Here in BC, especially in the rural areas, any high angle rescue say for example; a car accident, is also responded to by volunteers.
The actual money spent rescuing wayward skiers is an absolute pittance compared to the cost of the 125 drunk driving fatalities in BC every year. We have a government monopoly on insurance I have no choice but to pay for that shiat.
