Thanks for the reply Bram,Very cool story and post. Wish you had some bottle pix to go with it but next time for sure.
I've had a couple of times where someone called 911, and the fire dept. shows up, and you wind up feeling guilty for all the unnecessary fuss and worry.
It turns out that I left my camera in the car after the Packer game and my buddy found it later. He had come down from Alsaka so, it's going to be awhile before I see it because he's got to mail it back. I WILL post pictures sooner or later, though. (If I can find my old digi-cam its sooner. If I can't, its probably later).
As for the 911 calls, they do happen. I have almost always had the authorities be pretty nice about it . . .
I've told this before, but once we were diving in January and we had to break up some ice in the river in order to create open water. We suited up, jumped up and down on the ice and broke chunks off. When the ice broke, naturally, we fell into the water. It was okay because our gear kept us warm. We'd shove the loosened pieces under the ice and climb back up and break more off. But from the roadway (or even the shoreline) it must have looked like a couple of guys were falling into the icy water. The police responded wondering what the heck we were doing. We told them and they were okay with it - but they asked us to let them know ahead of time the next time we try this. Works for me.
