Re: Ever been close to death ? (no NDEs, please)

Wow, scary ! So, how did you make it back to shore eventually ? It's actually a really interesting story. It seems just so unlikely the sequence of events and coincidences that unfolded... A few years prior to this incident, I had been in another sea, on a small sail boat with a friend, and at some...

Re: Ever been close to death ? (no NDEs, please)
