Everyone has a hunting story, and we want to hear yours. Not about the time you missed that 6x6 mulie, or the 80-plus-pound tusker that gave you the slip. We want to hear about the time you ran into a buffalo . . . Or, more accurately, the buffalo ran into you.
Or maybe you tumbled down a mountainside, or got so sick in camp that you thought you might not make it back to civilization. Have you ever found yourself in the middle of a coup, a drug war, a shooting match between tribes, or a tense situation with organized poaching gangs?
Using the theme "I lived to tell the tale" as a general guideline, write a story describing a time when you really needed Global Rescue
