Y'know, this made me reflect on getting hauled out of the narrow's canyon by SAR in September. Most of them were kids - I'd assumed they were there working as professional rescuers, I never realized they were just volunteers who were called together at the last minute to save some dumbass kid who jumped off of a rock.

I'm grateful for the work they did to save my tired, stupid ass. I wish they were compensated better for their time. They really rescued me.

Probably kids just like you.

Just sayin'. There are worse places to make friends and drinking buddies.

True! They kept me chatting through the whole thing, presumably because I was really chatty and they wanted to know right away if I passed out again.

Listened to the first-aid guy talk about his D&D campaign. He's playing a kobold rogue. Wish I'd gotten his name, he seemed like a kindred spirit :)
