Willie Nelson used to sing, “On the Road Again” and “Going places that I’ve never been”. In this case I think these two guys went places they ain’t never been but ended up someplace they shouldn’t have been. It was quite the fiasco and I’ll spare all of you the sordid details.

In short, these two guys ended up between a rock and hard place. On the power line, after a foot of snow had fallen a day or two before, these guys descended a pretty steep hill and couldn’t get back up over it after they discovered the large water hole at the bottom.

After giving it some thought, they decided if they just kept moving, they could get across. Didn’t happen. Two guys from hunting camp happened along, and with the aid of two-way radios and cellphones, the posse arrived to haul them out.

They were happy!
