Aron Ralston:
Good morning, everyone! It's 6:45 Tuesday morning in BJ Canyon! The weather is great. I figure by now that Leona, my housemate - Hi, Leona! - has missed me hopefully since I didn't show up last night. Another hour and a half they'll miss me for not showing up at work... Hi, Brion at work! Best case scenario is they notify the police and after a 24 hour hold they file a report, a missing person's report. Which means noon tomorrow it's official that I'm gone. I do still have the tiniest bit of water left. Well, actually, I've resorted... I've had a couple pretty good gulps of urine that I saved in my Camelbak. I sort of let it distill... It tastes like hell. So, it's 70 hours since I left on my bike from Horseshoe Trailhead during which time I have consumed 3 liters of water, a couple of mouthfuls of piss... [pauses a couple of seconds] Did I say the weather is great? Well, it is. Though flash floods potential is still present. There's four-prong major canyons upstream from me that all converge in this 3 foot wide gap where I am. The rock I pulled down on top of me, it was put there by flood. Still, I'd get a drink. [pauses again, while he drinks and shudders] Mom, Dad, I really love you guys. I wanted to take this time to say the times we've spent together have been awesome. I haven't appreciated you in my own the way I know I could. Mom, I love you. I wish I'd returned all of your calls, ever. I really have lived this last year. I wish I had learned some lessons more astutely, more rapidly, than I did. I love you. I'll always be with you.

Aron Ralston:
Good morning everyone! It is seven o'clock here, in Canyonlands, U.S.A. And this morning, on the boulder, we have a very special guest, self-proclaimed American super hero… Aron Ralston! Let's hear it from Aron! Hi, oh, gosh, it's, it's a real pleasure to be here, thank you. Thank you. Hey, can I say "hi" to my mom and dad? Mom and dad? Mustn't forget mom and dad, right Aron? Yeah, that's right. Hey mom. I'm really sorry I… I didn't answer the phone the other night. If I had I would have told you where I was going and then… I probably wouldn't be here right now. That's for sure! But like I always say: "Your supreme selfishness, is our gain". Thank you Aron. Anyone else you'd like to say "hi" to? Brian at work. - Hi, Aron. Hey, I probably won't be making it in to work today. Ha-ha-ha. Get a load of this guy! Oh, wait, hold on. We've got a question coming in from another Aron, in Loser Canyon, Utah. Aron asks: Am I right in thinking even if Brian from work notifies the police, they'll put a 24-hour hold on it before they file a missing persons report, which means you won't become officially missing until midday Wednesday at the earliest? Yeah, you're right on the money there, Aron. Which means, I'll probably be dead by then. Aron, from Loser Canyon, Utah, how do you know so much? Well, I'll tell you how I know so much. I volunteer for the rescue service. You see, I'm some kind of a… well a big f***ing heart hero. And I can do everything on my own, you see? I do see! Now… is it true that despite, or maybe because you're a big f***ing heart hero, you didn't tell anyone where you were going? Oh, Yeah, that's absolutely correct. Anyone? Anyone. Oops. Oops. Oops.
