It's not a question of who should retrieve it in the this situation. The rescue was still in play (or so Livingston thought as he couldn't see around the corner) and the result was that he was told the rescuee (me) still had the rope in hand and was going to hold it, which I did not, nor did I know he was letting go.
A loose rope is really shitty. And we are going to do whatever we can to get it out of there. Just everyone beware that somewhere past the island rock just beyond rig is a 50 foot cord of rope. Darren really looked hard for it but it just vanished in the chocolatey water...
The potential good news here is that the water beyond is fairly mellow, shallow and I am fairly sure that it didn't go far beyond under the hwy 6 bridge. Most likely just wound around a bunch of FU rocks 8 inches under water.
I will go there with a fishing pole to try and snag it tomorrow.
Keep your eyes open please.
