This is a "Hold my beer" story in spirit if not in fact. Craig Gurney had moved from Idaho to Oklahoma and with some friends in his new state got pretty close to something major. He lived to tell about it, and told us the story at the July 7 Story Night of Champions. He was the ninth and final speaker of the night, so that means our nine-episode run featuring stories from that evening is over.
Craig was a little surprised when one element came up, so listen for that.
Also, I introduce this episode from a motel in California where interesting things happened. This episode is long because of Craig, and because of me.
The song is "Hell Hole" by Spinal Tap, for reasons I'll tell you in the podcast.
Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.
