basically he and jackson rupe got stuck between some cliffs in head high blackberries after a 10 mile trail run. They were in shorts and a t shirt and there was also an ice storm and their phones were dead. Somehow, john found out where they were and the rescue team involved rappelling down cliffs in the ice and electric saws.

Yes, but also they almost died standing in an ice storm for 3 hours

I respect your commitment to adventure! Glad to hear you're both at the story-telling point...well, at least your friends and family are. ;-)

Sounds like you heard the story from my mom Greta. There was no ice storm (this is a trademark example of her exaggeration). As we were leaving it began to snow but that was afterwards.

I like the 5:30:00 time. Maybe your worst pace ever. Haha. For the record, him and Jackson were fine, the problem was really their helper (me) wasn’t much help. I really didn’t want to involve other people, but I really had no choice due to my bad knees and in general, old-man attributes. I knew once the mom-net got wind of it, it could take on a life of its own.

I feel like you told us a story very similar to this one from a past adventure. Do you think there might be any lessons to be learned here?

Unfortunately it seems like the events of this run have been thoroughly discussed :o

Jackson Rupe:
I was 5 seconds away from asking what happened before I realized I was there
