The cable car jerked forward unsteadily. It halted. The ancient cables
beginning to corrode. The thirty people inside yelling and screaming
with terror. They began to panic! The cable car started to move a
fraction at a time it proceeded.

The boy who was watching with fear noticed the cable car said

"Warning; 25 people maximum"

His body began to shake and shiver more and more. The boy was about
5ft 2, with dark hair and brown eyes. The freezing weather was getting
to him, although he tried to buck up, he also tried rubbing his hands
together to heat up. Jim noticed the cable car above his head.

The cable car now began to sway with the horrific wind. The yelling
and shouting got boisterous and became deafening. The thunderous wind
made the cable car jerk forward and backwards. The thirty now shouting
desperately for help!

Jim was trying to make out what the woman in the cable car was saying.
The women had dark hair, with what looked like blue eyes; it was hard
to tell from that distance. The woman was saying


Jim could not make out what the woman was saying. Jim shouted pardon
him self-competing with the thunderous wind. She said again

"Call the…" He still couldn't make out what she was instructing him to
do. He yelled again, this time he luckily made out what the woman
said. She instructed him to call the emergency services. Jim didn't
have a mobile phone what was he going to do?

Jim looked up the immense gust made the cable car shift again. It was
quite fast; the ancient cables could not hold the weight any longer
they began to disjoin. The cable now in a "v" shape with the weight of
the passengers. Jim ran as fast as he could, his black fluffy jacket
almost flying behind him like superman, he ran and ran as fast as he
could, Jim was gasping and breathing heavily but did not stop until
finally he got to the receptionist office.

Defining Adventure Education Essay

- Growing up, I knew adventure education to be about practical skills and recreation. It was a way of keeping youth active and engaged. More recently, however, I’ve come to learn more about the history and philosophies of adventure education and so my idea of the concept has changed dramatically as I have also lived and learned much since the days of my youth. I define adventure education as one word: integration. Integration encompasses both personal growth and development of morals and an understanding of nature and the environment on a deeper level....   [tags: Adventure Programming]

The Good Life Adventure Essay

- So here, we were on our next adventure. A man, a woman, a teenage girl, two dogs, a caravan and a trailer; setting up home in the woods. Twenty acres of undulating woodland, made up of hard and soft wood trees, which was unfenced and with no immediate neighbours other than the incumbent wildlife. This was our little piece of rural paradise hidden from everyone, a blank canvas to create whatever we wanted. Living the ‘good life,’ from our perspective, and on a practical level, meant aiming to live a simpler existence....   [tags: adventure, rural, caravan]

- Companies are not unlike species, they must both change with the current environment or risk becoming extinct. Charles Darwin succinctly states this idea, “It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent but the one most responsive to change.”1 In the case study, “Other People’s Money,” in the scene presented there is a proxy vote going to take place by the shareholders of the New England Wire and Cable (NWC) Company.

He was panting and did not
know what to say to the man at the reception.

"Some p.. p.. people are stuck on the c.. cable car."

The man at the office dressed in a blue suit, with a clean white shirt
and a red tie immediately picked the phone up and called the emergency

"Hello, we have a cable car stuck on the cable and the car is
swinging, thank you bye."

After the man had put the phone down he asked where the people were,
Jim replied

"At the top of the ski slopes" now breathing normally.

The six rescue men stormed in, without hesitation they asked

"Where are they"

Jim replied

"At the top of the ski slope"

The men left and smashed the door behind them, the rescuers drove off
in their rescue van. As they got nearer to the ski slope their van
would keep on skidding, finally they decided to go on foot, as their
van would not make it up.

The six rescuers dressed in blue overalls and big boots began to take
out the ladder and run up. As they were going they heard sounds which
sounded familiar. The sounds were someone asking questions, but who
could it be? They got to the top of the ski slope and saw two cables
dangling down and a broken cable car. One of the men said

"All the pieces are here but where are the people." The six men waited
until Jim strolled along. At last Jim approached the scene. The man in
charge asked Jim

"Where have they disappeared to."

Jim did not know what to say, he hadn't the faintest idea were they
all had disappeared to. After Jim thought about it he said

"I am sure I saw them here before" pointing to the broken cables.

The rescue team was astonished and did not understand where the thirty
people had gone. One of the rescuers hinted,

"Maybe a ghost took them," the other one added

"Maybe they got buried under the snow," the other rescuers did not
know what to do. Jim was depressed. One of the rescuers walked further
and found a notice reading sorry out of service, he instantly called
the others and the story now began to make sense. Some one else had
been here!

They all were disturbed, they agreed to go back to the receptionist
office. Jim looked very apprehensive, he really wanted to see that
family unfortunately they had disappeared. On the way back the team of
rescuers asked Jim if the people were his family or friends? Jim

" No, I came sightseeing and I was about to take a photograph of the
cable cars and I noticed the family in trouble" The rescue men were
really nice and praised Jim

"You are a very brave young lad"

They approached the receptionist office; they went inside and
explained that the people had disappeared. The man at the office
informed Jim and the six rescuers that the people inside the cable car
were saved by Helicopter. Jim was absolutely delighted and asked the
man if he could see them.

The rescuers waved good bye to Jim and went, Jim was to happy to have
noticed them and he burst into the room next door where the thirty
people were resting after there horrid experience. As Jim entered the
room the people clapped and cheered as though he was a hero. Jim felt
proud. They all thanked him for calling the emergency services. They
even asked him to stay with them for the three days they were here
for. After they had finished resting they all went back to their hotel
and had a surprise party for Jim. Jim was a hero!
