since saturday after noon a sledder went missing, the weather was stormy and he got lost. apparently he was lagging behind the 2 other guys that were with him and he must of got disorientated and lost his way. today a search was organized and probably 200 people were out looking for him. this afternoon they found his sled, but they have still never had any luck in finding him yet.

im a member of a bike forum and most of them guys wont give you the time of day without having a general location filled in, in a way, i think its a good idea, maybe we can make it a unwritten rule here as well, for the "just in case" like we have here...........

i think its terrible someone would post a thread like this for 1/2 the world to see and not post a location as to where this may be happening

GPS is a waste of time. All it does is put people, who should never have been out in the bush/back country, into situations they shouldn't be in.

Yup.... that's REAL cool when someone's "friends" check out on them and leave them behind for dead. Idiots.

somehow columbus discovered america... oh right it was cuba and by accident... but seriously a map and compass have never failed me and don't require batteries...

BTW someone fill us in on what happened, did they find the guy alive?

I find that GPS is a very useful tool. It is an electronic gadget that can fail due to any of a number of reasons. Killer's point is well taken. If you are using GPS to navigate back home, have a backup plan. A good Silva compass and a USGS topo map and the ability to use them can save the day.

If you want to learn more about navigating with a compass and map, get the book titled: Be Expert With Map and Compass.
