What's Your "Defining Moment"?


You may recall the amazing story of Aron Ralston, the solo hiker who had to cut off his own arm after getting it trapped under a boulder in Southern Utah. His story has been turned into a new feature film, "127 Hours" starring James France, and director Danny Boyle ("Slumdog Millionaire") filmed most of it here in the Beehive State, either on location or in a Salt Lake City studio.

Outside Magazine and the film are now asking people to send in their own defining moment, with an amazing gear package as a grand prize. Here's the details:
Danny Boyle's 127 HOURS - in theaters November 5 - is based on the true story of Aron Ralston (played by James Franco), a climber and adventurer whose survival hinged on a single defining moment that saved his life. Just launched, 127DefiningMoments.com seeks inspirational people to share their own life-changing or death-defying experiences in the great outdoors. Together with Aron Ralston's own story, the top 126 moments submitted will be selected to create "127 Defining Moments." Top entrants will be chosen on November 12.
