What Not to do at the Grand Canyon

Post by Tough_Boots » Nov 04 2015 5:58 pm

A drunken British woman saved from a Grand Canyon cliff edge late Sunday night greeted her rescuers with scorn and spit, rangers say.

Probably someone from Manchester.
Nothing more enjoyable than a good hike out of town.

Was she cute, lonely, and single?

Who am I to nitpick?

Was she breathing?

She was only .053 which is probably a little too low for her to have looked your way :-({|=

Yo Chums,

Don't go all "John Alden" on me. I'd like to make that call for myself.

I wish they had identified the rest of the rangers in the report.

Since when do Brits have excess sunshine? Doesn't it always rain over there.

Odds are good she will leave the U.S. before the hearing date, unless there is some way to keep her around.

True - but if she ever returns to the US, there will be a Federal warrant out for her arrest. Committing a crime on Federal land is no joke, and the consequences of fleeing are made clear to foreign perpetrators.

Good points! I hadn't thought about what they would have told her.
