Missing Rig Located
The missing oar rig was spotted this morning from the air. I will refrain until later from revealing the location so as to avoid potential vultures.
I must say, I have been in contact with dozens of people from all walks of life, up and down the river and in nearby towns: ranchers, rangers, law enforcement, pilots, boaters, business owners ---you name it . Folks have been exceptionally helpful, decent, and responsive.
I'll post an update after the rig is extracted.
