I was there in ‘04. I waited in line 45 minutes just to get in the gate. A woman in line behind us was complaining that it was her husbands idea and she would rather be shopping. But she supposed it was the American thing to do. I turned around and looked at her at the same time my wife is telling me to just keep my mouth shut.I highly recommend going to Pearl Harbor for anyone that hasn't. Very powerful and moving. I was able to meet one of the survivors there in 2012. Worth the effort to see.
To this in the very next post???
Well done sir, well done.This will be the first year since WWII that there will be no survivors of Pearl Harbor attending the ceremonies remembering those who died in the attacks on December 7th 1941.

I quit whitewater cold turkey when I had kids. All of the top 10 times I almost died were in (or just out of) a kayak. I don't ski in the bc anymore either. It's not my life to risk now.I have spent so much time in swiftwater just for fun, extra rescue time was good practice.
We boated a lot of wilderness canyons, so rescue was up to us.
Running class V, most of those boaters skills surpass the rescue guys.

I'm lucky enough to be able to avoid two of those scenarios altogether. The last -- thank you for fighting fires. Something I've never felt a compulsion to do but I damn sure appreciate that someone does!My “I am going to die” moments have either been on I-70 as a traveller or fireman and at the range being covered by some tool with their finger on the trigger.
Way scarier for me than “me vs the power of nature”.
As you can see the Officer is turning away.Ass, gas or Grass- no one Antifa’s for free
