Today we were evaluating a site in the Sulfur Springs Valley, located east of Tucson.
Typical – anytime we have a site to visit there is a scramble to deal with barbed wire fences!
I had walked the site and was headed out and had to go under the barbed wire fence again!
I was alone as my crewmates were in the wash and well away from me.
The fence was tight but I thought I could get under without the extra ‘lift’ of the lower wires.
I got stuck!
I was on my belly - squirming under the wires - military style.
The barbs grabbed my windbreaker!
I managed to tilt and release the barbs.
I continued to do the military belly slide – hook and unhook the barbs.
Finally free and I was out!
As I stood up a crewmate laughingly hollered to me, “Didn’t any one tell you to act your age?”
“Don’t all old ladies belly under barbed wire fences?” I hollered back.
