So yesterday I went out fishing with a friend. The water here is pretty cold. Something between 45-50 degrees so I could feel it even through my fleece lined jeans. Well anyway, we were going back into the stream and my friend went into the river a little ahead of me and I tried to follow except the rock I chose to step on was at a steep angle so took a bit of a swim. Soaked everything I was wearing, thought I was going into shock but my breathing evened out after I got my wet shirt and hoodie off. I could have used a pipe right then but didn't bring it with me so I had to get the next best thing, a beer. However, if I was really in any real trouble there was luckily multiple paramedics/firemen there doing white water training.
