Nice one Jeff! Boy, do I agree. Thank God for signal fires. And thank God for good people who watch for them!

Enjoyed reading this- what a great way to come across a find. And signal fires? Definitely a good thing, but one’s got to be careful with those, though. Two marines tried using one to get help near Ft. Irwin after they drove their jeep down a shaft.  Rule number six from the book of obviously dumb and redundant safety rules: Don’t ever light a signal fire when you are stuck at the bottom of a mine shaft.

I've never heard the term "signal fires" before. Do you mean signal flares?:idunno:

Good question Steve! Actually, I was just reacting to the comment made by pairadice: "Then there was the time Patrick had to find me at night navigating by my signal fire...... " I surmised that he was talking about a campfire which could be seen at a distance in the dark for the purpose of  revealing the location of a person being searched for.  I really hadn't considered the signal flare angle until you mentioned it.
