Thanks for sharing this. It was a well-documented account of nearly everyhting one should not do.
Hell, we've all made our mistakes; and will continue to do so. Even the well-prepared find themselves in horrible circumstances that they (sometimes) cannot overcome. . .not saying yours was a "horrible circumstance", but it certainly became an issue!

(I'd better knock on wood before I jinx myself!)
