Keep your eyes peeled!

So I was doing a little winter caching the other day. There was an old foot bridge over a channel that looked good for a hide. The bridge itself was blocked off and the approach ramp had been removed with the exception of the joists. I had the brilliant idea to descend between said joists. Turns out snow on a steep incline is kinda slippery. Had a touch time of it getting my footing. And when I finally did, I looked at the joists that I had been (slightly frantically) grabbing for support. Yeah, every 6 inches or so was a rusty nail sticking up menacingly. I had actually snagged my coat on one and got a small tear. Thankfully that was all that got damaged.

So the moral of the story is, look out for rusty nails. Those buggers can be anywhere! Global Moderator

Good advice! Glad you are OK.
