That almost read like a good short story.

Police say Aders was likely under the influence of something when he started his trip.

"He kind of more or less admitted that he was last night, but that he was coming down, and spending the night in the cold woods, I guess, will bring you down pretty hard," Catron said.

Since Aders had suffered enough, he wasn't arrested.

Now unlike the kids in the overturned SUV this is an actual survival situation. And he did the correct thing. Better to have no clothes on than wet ones because wet clothes will conduct more heat away from the body than dry, naked skin.  So can we have a round of applause for the naked druggie who survived a night in the woods and more importantly 10,000 minutes on the cable news channel?

/note, this does somewhat depend on the actual material of the clothes and the precise degree of moisture saturation but most jeans are cotton and it is true for cotton.

Christ. I've covered some distances on "leaps of faith" in relationships in the past, but hell....I'm not walking a marathon in 0 degrees unless it's to save our asses. And even that is a really bad idea. Take the bus moran. Or buy a plane ticket. Oh wait.....you were high at it seemed good at the time.

A farking guitar case......
 
2013-12-12 02:00:30 AM
So... what happened to the guitar?

The "strung out" part of the headline is just a joke. TFA doesn't mention anything about drugs.

Based on the statements at the end, I think it's safe to say he wasn't just drunk.

Ah, sorry, just read it again. I missed that part somehow.

I realize that. I was going with the joke. But thank you for pointing out the glaring error.

Apparently he's now going to take up the double bass.

and I would walk 15-20 miles for you
and I would walk 15-20 miles for you
just to be the man that would walk 15-20 miles and fall in a pond and take all my clothes off and spend the night in a guitar case for you

we need to see pics of the woman he was going to see to determine whether or not this was worth it.
 
2013-12-12 04:05:24 AM
Maybe he overdosed on ecstacy and the extreme cold kept his body from overheating.
 
2013-12-12 04:15:01 AM
Uhm, for those many retards on fark who evidently don't know:

When you have clothes on...you are NOT naked. Just saying.

The dog was adorable. The cat will just piss in there. /happened to my friend, and after failing to get rid of the odor, he had to get rid if the case

 On the other hand, it may have occurred to him that Mingus did look pretty cool playing that double bass...........

I am. I'm just naked underneath my clothes.

I thought for sure they were going to arrest him for INDECENT EXPOSURE!

Checotah, OK?

Didn't Carrie Underwood start her career the same way?

Kids ,always remember if you are trippin balls and you want to walk 26 miles thru the snow and frozen ponds always bring an empty guitar case ... a really big one.  It just might save your life.

mudpants:  always bring an empty guitar case ... a really big one.  It just might save your life.


third reference i've seen now to "empty guitar case"... hey guess what, i have a hunch there may have been an instrument inside it when he departed.

it's not as if he said "i may need to take shelter inside this case so i had better remove the instrument before i leave, because I certainly can't take it out at any other time!"
 
2013-12-12 08:04:21 AM
The article made no mention of any instrument

Was the woman his meth dealer?  Because as farked up as it is.........that would make sense.

Crossing the pond late last night
He shoulda looked a-left and he shoulda looked a right
He didn't see the this ice sign
Guy fell through and there you are

You got your chilled guy in a guitar case

As I am watching the lake near me freeze over and I contemplate buying myself a pair of ice skates and take advantage of a large free skating rink, I realize I don't want to step on that ice too soon.  I don't want to walk on the ice unless I could fall on it without so much as a cracking sound.
 
2013-12-12 09:50:31 AM
Glad to see that Shadow took up an instrument.

"The guy was like, 'Help me, help me. My legs, my feet,'" said Emily Shamblin said.

And I was, like, "What did you, like, do?" and he was, like, "Staying warm," he, like said and I was, like, "What were you, like, thinking?" and he was, like, "I didn't, like, consider the possibility that I might, like, become exposed to, like, the elements and, like, potentially, like, die."

I was, like, thinking...something....a, like, long time ago....

I'm from Checotah, currently live in Muskogee and I submitted this story 3 times yesterday - I believe I'm on auto-redlight

And what KIND of guitar are we talking about? If he left a vintage Hummingbird out in the cold then he made the wrong choice. People die but good guitars live forever.

If it was an Ibanez he no doubt said "and i thought they smelled bad on the outside".
 
2013-12-12 09:44:34 PM
He set out in the icy grip of Winter to walk 26 miles to see a woman. Was he under the influence of alcohol or drugs or both? Do you have to ask?

I bet you he has his New Years Resolution already made:  Take up playing the bass cello.

Have you ever heard Joe Ely's "25 miles" (sung here at a frenetic pace by a Motown singer)? I believe the version I have on my iPod is by Big Bill Morganfield. He really rocks it as a blues song (his father was Muddy Waters! although he didn't met his father much if at all, after getting two degrees and teaching school for some time he became a serious muscian after hs father's death in 1983 (Wikpedia)).

I also love his "Born to Boogie".

You can say that again. He surely was born to the blues.

It's ok to spill beer on a fiddle.
