Sat 8/3/19: Sunset Run / Search and Rescue near Lake Pleasant, AZ

Recommended Posts

I don't have any pictures, but I though I would kick off the thread anyway. I just wanted to say thanks to theksmith and Chris and Sarah for mounting a search and rescue mission to find me! :eek:

 

It goes back to this spring when I ran this trail with theksmith and George and Diane. I was recording the track when my GPS overheated. When I got back home I got the bright idea to just complete the track using Google earth.

 

Unfortunately, what looked like a clear route that I had mapped out through the second creek crossing was actually completely blocked off by overgrown trees and vegetation.

 

I was no more than 1/4 mile from the group and we could communicate on the cb, but out of site and cutoff nevertheless.

 

I was finally able crawl back up the two foot ledge I dropped off earlier to get down into the creek. Chris and Sarah were then able to find me.

 

The ksmith said that my GPS navigation license is suspended until further notice! :D
