This is me packing my goat out. Also itís me praying to the Lord that I donít trip and die. Iím not the most agile goofball in the world.  Probably the 2nd most sketchy spot of the hike out.

It would have been a significant fall I think but I don't think I would have died. Just broke my skull.

I think the pic makes it look worse than it really was actually. I'm not gonna lie...some of it was nerve wracking.

Actually that was just as bad as it looks.  I was glad when we got by there and to some grassier areas.  What made it worse was the weight on our backs.  I didn't think of that when I talked you into going over there.  I was just focused on you shooting a goat.  After you did and I thought about the trail back I must admit I was a little worried.  I had talked you into it so I had to put on my game face.  Full disclosure that was sketchy as heck.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

I think Rick and I agree that this was give or take the path we took back.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
