My dad always said...."if I'm gone too long, find a high spot and watch for the birds circling". Kinda put things in perspective for me. He always knew the risks, the dangers, the people he'd leave behind.

Matter of fact, he's somewhere high in the San Juans, alone with his horses, as I type this....

I'll never judge an experienced man for pursuing his passions alone.

Not that I always agree with caspermike, but after reading this thread I have to agree with his posts and I will say I have a new found respect for him... People do plenty of dumb things, especially in the wilderness. Its how they deal with them and what they learn from their mistakes that makes them who they are, and sometimes the stories will keep others from making the same mistakes!
