    Default Search & Rescue....waiting to deploy.

    Been on the phone with the Troopers. I know the area well and ride there a lot. Not sending ground searchers out yet, but my stuff is all ready to go. Waiting on the call. Been hearing a lot of aircraft to the south of me. Sounds like they are flying a grid. Too low to see them.

    Lots of air traffic around my place in sterling too. Haven't herd if they have narrowed down the search area yet.

    Things will get much more difficult after the snow we are supposed to be getting. Hope they are found soon.

    Very true. I'm not really familiar with the transponders but I hope it's still transmitting and I would think if it's still transmitting it means it's not under water. This time of year there's lots of frozen lakes and ponds to set down on. But with no radio or cell contact it's a bit worrisome.

    We used to have good cell coverage when snow machining the Refuge. Not anymore with the switch to GCI. I do hope they are trying to 'ping' each of their phones though. My brother was located in Wa. state that way. Used towers from competing cell carriers to triangulate.
