. Sometimes things beyond control happen to even smart, experienced people.

 And the responsibility for their actions rests with them.

That's a great concept. You know what would happen if the State of New Mexico failed to send searchers out every time one of those bozos (experienced or inexperienced) ran into trouble? They would be sued and probably lose.

Who going to pay for the Rescue?  Bill them like you get billed for Med Evac ?  Force people to buy Insurance maybe ?  I go with "Your took the Risk , You Pay for it" .

 

The Sun Shade I put in the windshield of my car has a warning.  "DO NOT DRIVE WHILE IN PLACE"   Yep, there out there.  That warning is there because of it.

The state of New Mexico has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars looking for idiots, (experienced or not) who find themselves in trouble looking for this treasure.. either through stupidity or bad luck. Guess who pays for it??? The taxpayers.

LOL, HF has no Dog in this fight.   The State of New Mexico does try to recover the funds if possible.  It just never happens.  Run by Democrats they have no issues spending our money.  

Can't help but wonder how many Millions of dollars have been used pulling people out of the Superstitions.

...or the ocean.

Maybe we should put up a fence and keep people out of there. 

It's dangerous.

 Don't stick your head in a bucket of water, either. YOu might drown.D1917.gif

The bag your sunshade came in is a choking hazard.  Do not attempt to breathe while inside it.

States that have good hunting and fishing probably spend more every year on search and rescue resources than New Mexico will ever spend on the few people that get lost or hurt looking for this treasure. Just in Nevada alone, they have to go out and look for hunters several times a hunting season. Why aren't state governments not wanting to ban hunting and fishing and other outdoor activities due to this reason?

Piss poor planning promotes piss poor performance. Weather is getting most of them, both hot and cold. First thing I always check before launching into any outdoor activity, weather.

Grub, conventional thinking and most point to Yellowstone as he spent so much of his family vacations there. I picked a place a little closer as he said he drove his car there.

I've spent some time researching, and have come South of the Canadian Border.  At least its keeping me busy.

My buddy and I spent many years flyfishing Yellowstone. We have a spot that clearly matches all the clues, but he's still working, and we just haven't made time to go look. The road is close, and many people go by there every year, so Fenn is right when he says many people have been close. One of these years, we'll go take a walk, and see if we're right.
