    I agree and my thoughts exactly when I learned of the rescue going on. We had just gotten out of there the day before and it was raining on us and the temps were dropping - in fact I think the mountain had ice that night - so when I heard about this I was thinking I sure hope they had some basic survival gear.

    I like happy endings. Thanks for sharing the article, it's food for thought.

    That was a good article. Glad those guys made it out ok.

    Pretty wild to see Mike Street's name in that article. I just talked with him on Thursday.

    Mike is a first class guy and one helluva good rescue technician. Will probably see him next week during Wilderness Week.
