Perhaps he stopped off at the White Mountains first and was green blazing his way along the trail?
In all seriousness, Payson SAR seems to be kind of bungling this one. I am sure its tough to come out and say hey one of our guys made some mistakes and had to spend an extra night in the wilderness. But instead of vague and cryptic references to an app or a GPS and some sort of "technical" error, which helps no one. Why not make it a teachable moment and just come out and say the errors were human made, but here are some ways you can avoid making the same mistakes. Isn't that their job? Ultimately, if someone undertook a 50 mile backpack and was purely relying on an electronic app to get them from start to finish that is a "human" error in itself. Seems the chief is getting a little bit of the good ol boy treatment on this one to me.Maybe he was holding it upside down
Agreed. Without full transparency the general public will never get the benefit of a teachable moment.friendofThundergod wrote:In all seriousness, Payson SAR seems to be kind of bungling this one.
