    It's entirely possible she turned around, as has been told to do. She missed a turn, in an area where it's not uncommon. Lost, cold, bad weather, she decided to get off the ridge head west down the...

    I've said it before but I can easily think of a half-dozen times, likely more, where death was just as likely an outcome as not over the last 45 years. Falling into icy streams, slipping down...

    If a rescuer shows up, do you interview them and if deemed insufficient, do you shoo them away and tell them to send something better? :D

    Define "hiking".

    I've amassed many thousands of miles in my life. Some are rugged peaks from Newfoundland to Alaska. Some are on sandy beaches. Some on rolling hills, open fields, tree farms,...

    Interesting reading the comments this morning. Theme seems to be that "it's their job and what they signed up for". Might give a view into the thought process some have amassed, that coming to the...

    It's a worthy question surely. PB this ties into a conversation I had recently about Instagram. Lots of (seemingly) inexperienced people taking risks for clicks and to satisfy the followers they...

    I love maps too and have amassed quite a bit over the years. Love the old USGS you can get and see the changes over time. I've seen the old TB maps and agree, very well done. He must've amassed...

    I think it's wonderful that he's amassed a lot of money and is in a position to do what he wants with it. If that happens to be helping others, more power to him. But it was his choice to do so.
