Ash, a member on this forum named Graham Gedman took me down an unknown route and we spent the night out .5 mi from my vehicle. Don’t listen to all the has-beens
Personal Accountability:

Applies in decision making in the hills.

And nice tip of the hat to your partner that day. Classy. You must have been the sheep following the Shepard??

Above treeline is not .5 mile from your car on Belford/Oxford. s**t happens, but maybe have some humility for your part in it and gratitude to the SAR members who gave up their Thanksgiving weekend to pull you, your dog, and hiking partner out of the mine shaft where you spent the night.

Also, since you have been rescued by SAR maybe don't make fun of people who have been seriously injured and needed rescue. You've done that twice.

The vernacular these days. “Eat a dick”. Gotta freshen up on this stuff I guess
Oh wild West Wind, thou breath of Autumn’s being...

Ode to the West Wind
