Walking for miles now and all I can think of is keep going west, I am sure that is where I saw a town in that direction from where my helicopter crashed. As I was walking in a straight line I had to pass through mountains and thick trees in order to keep my bearing in line because you can get lost in thick forest, when all of the sudden I had to stop! Stop indeed, I walked
to a cliff! The cliff looked as if it went on for miles and in order to go around look like it could take me a day or so. What was I going to do now? Well lucky for me I am always prepared and grabbed my 72 hour emergency helicopter kit (that’s right, one in every vehicle) reached in and grabbed the repelling rope out of it. I attached it to the base of a tree and tied the knot like I learned in the military and pulled on it to make sure it was tight! Lifted up my shirt and attached the rope to the rigger on my belt and down I went. I went down the side of the mountain with ease to safety. Unhooked myself from the rope and continued on my way. After several more miles and hours I findly came upon a house with a phone so I can call in the crash and live another day. Who knows what would have happen to me if I did not have my belt, I do not even want to know. I am prepared and will survive!
