    Just wondering if you have ever did something really stupid and totally out of character for yourself? Something that you think back now and say to yourself, "What the heck was I thinking?!?!"

    I've got so many it'll take a while to figure out which one is tops on my list. :smack: In the meantime, post 'em up....let's hear it! :thumb:

    You mean like driving to work this morning? My museum is officially closed today, but I'VE got a dead line, so in to work I go... It's snowing pretty dang hard up here! :eek:

    I ain't got nothin' to compare with the famous Pgooch waterfall shot, but I do have a looooong list of "learning opportunities."

    Maybe it was canoeing down the PHD rapid on the Mulberry river at about 3.5 on the level scale BACKWARDS just to see if I could (I couldn't).

    Water skiing on Beaver lake third weekend in March (still snow on the ground) sans wetsuit. Couldn't pee for a week....:cool:

    Trying to jump clear over a creek on my Suzuki quadracer without scouting the landing. That hip still bothers me. :smack:

    I better quit this is getting embarrassing!

    When I was 17, I got drunk and wrecked my truck. No one was hurt, but I totaled my truck when it hit a Boone and Crockett Cedar tree. My buddy, in a slurred drunken voice said, "Man, you gotta call the cops and report this or the insurance company wont cover your truck. So we walked to a pay phone (1 mile) and I called the police. They came, arrested me for DWI, and had my truck towed off.

    All I had to do was walk home (2 miles) and leave the truck till morning when I was sober and I would not have gotten a DWI. But I listened to my stupid friend. That made both of us stooopid!!:rolleyes:

    Not going to say what the dumbest thing I've ever done was on-line. In my top 5 would be jumping off a 75 foot bridge into 8 feet of water. One of my "youthful indiscretions"

    About 25 years ago, a friend and I went to Lake Greeson to do some crappie fishing in early March. We got there just after daybreak. Seems like the air temp was in the 40's. The lake was extremely low and we were having a horrible time launching the boat. It was my job to hold the rope while my friend was driving his little Ford p.u. backing down and jerking forward. In order not to lose the boat, I wrapped the rope several times very tightly around my hand. I was standing in the bed of the truck near the gate. With one more big jerk the boat was off the trailer pulling me with it. I did a 360 off the truck into some very cold water! After I came up and caught my breath, my echo lasted about ten seconds!
