worst non-fatal crossing of Sandy at PCT

This was three years ago, but just showed up in my YT recommendations. Poor guy was trying to cross Sandy, when he...well, no, I won't ruin the surprise.

It's kinda long, but what you really want to see is at
0:30 - 0:40

Although it has to be admitted there's a certain perverse humor in this, I did feel really bad for him.

That was funny since it ended well

I hate those crossings

At some point, quit worrying about getting your boots wet
