Gather 'round the campfire one and all; embrace a loved one or grab a cold one; smoke 'em if you got 'em and leave your troubles behind. It's time for another episode of The Dirtbag Diaries with Fitz Cahall:
In May of 2007, I made a mistake that should have cost me my life when I slipped high on a Central Oregon volcano. I fell between 250-300 feet, over a cliff, through rock bands before grabbing a rock out cropping and stopping my fall. I'm still not sure how I stopped myself. Amazingly, I walked away with a sprained thumb. This week the Dirtbag Diaries presents the Anatomy of an Accident. What do you take away from a near-death experience? Is there meaning in it? If so, what does it say about our relationships with these mountains, these rivers and these oceans.
