So last weekend I went to go visit my cousin who just moved to a new house on the other side of the state. It was a wonderful weekend, this was the first time I fell like I really got to know her growing up because she had moved away a really long time ago.

On Friday night Joe mentioned a river he was wanting to canoe down, Saturday looked like it was going to be a perfect day weatherwise, so we left at about 1000 the next day to canoe down the Sheboygan river.

About 3 hours into the trip we saw the signs for a Dam in Sheboygan Falls that we knew we were going to portage around. There was a big dam that we had figured been where the falls were, and about 100 yards downstream we put back in.

The river was very quick, but we thought that it should be just a fun little ride until the river slowed down.

As we kept going the river got quicker and quicker and the water started getting much more turbulent, great! This should be a fun little ride, hang on!

After a ways we started to see foam getting sprayed up into the air! We couldn't stop so me and Joe went over the first 5 foot falls in a canoe.

We hit really hard, but we actually made it. As we went further down and over water turbulance we started to take on a lot of water and hit several rocks almost tipping us. Further down we hit the much smaller waterfall we flipped the boat.

We then got pushed about 400 yards downstream with the canoe pushing us unable to get it out from behind us because the current was so quick. Eventually it slowed down and we got pushed to the side of the river where we were able to get out.

The boat had small stress fractures in about the middle of the boat, there was a hole in the bottom, I somehow broke the seat behind me even though I was kneeling in the bow, and somehow broke the center piece of the boat off (breaking 4 rivets). I have some bruises on my butt and feet, and a small scrape but other than that I'm fine.

When have you almost killed yourself?

Yes, much better threads would include Dutch American-hating white rapper clothing styles and repetitive mentions of how drug-induced sexually active you are.

Two weeks ago I was biking home at night and it was raining like a motherfucker, so much that I couldn't see the road through all the water. I hit some hole in the road and swerved and fell, getting out of the way as fast as I could. Fortunately there were no cars directly behind to run me over, so I got out with a scraped elbow.

I almost drowned in rough surf at Daytona Beach.

mmac, obviously you survived, but do you look back and in a weird way think it was a fun experience? I have a thing for thrills, I guess.

yeah, actually I did. While it was happening I didn't really freak out, but I usually don't in those situations.

I've had a knife pulled on me in Nogales Mexico, lost an engine in a plan over the Mediterranean, gotten lost for 12 hours in the grand canyon, rolled a 4 wheeler less than 3 feet from the vertical edge of a 70ft tall rock quarry.

Living through experiences like that can definitely make you appreciate life a little more, but they're not going to make me change the way that i act.

I try to avoid any situations that could get me killed, except for driving fast. I used to kayak a lot and the most dangerous it got was when I was parallel with a wake rather than perpendicular to it. Don't do it, kids. It's a bad idea.

I love you Jesus Chuh-rist.

Closest thing to killing myself would be when I was riding my bike downhill with no brakes at ~40 km/h towards a crossroads, the other road leading to it was out of sight, blocked by houses and trees, and I couldn't make my mind up to force a relatively safe crash so I just rode across the crossroads. Fortunately it was a mostly deserted road.

Fortunately it was a mostly deserted road.


I did something like that once, except that instead of a crossroads it was the end of a pier at the bottom of the hill and I did end up crashing to avoid it, though it wasn't exactly something I chose to do. The hill had a grade of at least 45 degrees, and my attempt to brake with my feet just ended up flipping me over the handlebars. I got the wind knocked out of me and some assorted abrasions and my bike landed about 10 feet down the hill from me. Fortunately, it was not damaged beyond some superficial scratches.
