Just to clarify, lots of yellow means lots of posts by the OP. You can figure out what that indicates for yourself.

Good for you Cragman! Rescuing humanity, one free ad at a time. Please accept a little help while I bump your thread to the top again. I appreciate the good works you do.

Mike., RussianBot, and F.

You guys are clueless! A little jealous of Dean? You guys are being pathetic jerks...not sure what you have against Dean but the jealousy and envy is obvious.

Grow up punks.

P.S. Mike deleted some of his posts.

So one winter we get a call for a vehicle over side in the Merced River down by El Portal.

The two occupants are in the vehicle which was submerged in the icy water up to the occupants heads and they are sitting in the vehicle as we arrive.

Fire guys came and got their biggest ladder off the truck and did a masterful job extending it out there to them, and then ....

Blah blah blah they rescued the old man and his wife from certain death by freezing in the fridged waters.

When the old man was safely back on solid ground (shore) ....

He said right before lost control on the black ice he was bad mouthing volunteer fireman as not being up to snuff as regular fireman (he was a retired fireman).

Most all of the people who showed up to get his ass out of the river were volunteer fireman, lol.

We had to leave after the two occupants were safely rescued.

I really wanted to stay and watch the vehicle being recovered by the tow truck .....

(Because 0ver 90% of SAR is just plain human tow truck recovery :-))

Werner, "volunteers" in CA are usually very well trained. Case in point: My brother was a volunteer here in CA for a small department. Constantly going to training. He moved to NV and signed up with their local department as a volunteer. The NV department had expensive, fancy equipment but no training in how to use it. My brother immediately became the training officer. Within 2 years he was hired full time by a large fire dept and now he is a capt there.

Of course, they are, otherwise, they'd just run into burning building in their swimming trunks.

The point was, we shouldn't be envious .....

Volunteers are fine. When I was with Washington Mt Rescue I got really tired of dealing with retarded sheriffs. On one occasion the corrupt sheriff insisted on calling his brother-in-law and his POS lightweight chopper when we had access to either AF or Army twin-engined Hueys.

Rosnau! Rosnau! Calling Deanie Rosnau!

Can we get a little more Pretentious Self-Aggrandizing Rambling here please?!

PSAR, that is! We’re all hungry to learn from the master!

Edit: Forgive me, my jealousy gets the best of me sometimes... But seriously, you should name the sequel “The Longest Straw”
