Re: BFS Proponent Rescued at Sea
With us it was usually a call, initiated by a panicked relative, after sitting at the bar and having a couple of beers. Then it was back up on a cat with flashlights looking for tracks off into the woods. We had a couple of lifts at Gore that dead-ended so anyone in there after the lift operators were gone were screwed. (Once caught NYC judge--not all kids) Sometimes we'd tuck it back down from the summit in the dark. Now that was great fun!
I was just an instructor. But I always wanted to be patrol. You guys ruled.
