Ted: Bush-whacked

After six days in the water, the helo finally arrived to rescue me. I was floating on my coleman campaign cooler done up in woodland camo and wearing my fatigues. I'd been planning a hunting trip that morning when the levee burst, so I had my rifle, ammo, supplies, and lots of facepaint sunscreen.

I spent two days in the truck then four more days on the cooler, rationing my strength and water.

The helos flew over twice but didn't stop for me until I took off my damn shirt. The Coastie said they thought I was just a bush.
