The perils of widowmakers

How many times have we heard the old adage, before you sit down - look up!
Of course on the day you get complacent is the day something will happen. Rotten trees and storms don't mix and if you happen to be in the vicinity of a widowmaker.... this can happen lol.

The thing that ticked me off the most was that we'd only been there 20 minutes.
Anyway, pack back on and a long march out of the woods and a trip to hospital.

Nothing that a few stitches couldn't fix and a story to be told around future campfires, no doubt it will be embellished with each telling !


  1. That's why I camouflaged my old bee hat and usually wear it into the woods. It's not as good as my hard hat, but it would be a lot better than nothing, plus it can serve as an eye shade and "umbrella."
