    So one cold Sunday morning over coffee donna says she's hiking the Osceolas. I ask her who she is hiking with. She says she's hiking solo. Some of you know of donna's legendary navigational skills. I thought it best to tag along. That was my first winter peak. Huge congrats hotdonna!!!

    USFS coordinates rescues in Cuttler River Drainage from December 1 through May 31. NHF&G handles all others. Snowcat would not be practical for most situations. F&G does use snowmachines and ATV's. SAR volunteers try to be on the scene within an hour of a callout. MRS rocks :cool:

    How to upset the locals regarding trail-head parking

    A person's character has little to do with where one is born/bred/raised but much to do with lessons learned from parents and role models.

    Heroic rescue on Franconia Ridge - Sept 19, 2012
