Re: Plane Crash at Lost Dutchman Mine Park 11/23

Thank you all for the info. I am a groundpounder who has been hiking in the Supes for 45 yrs. Looking at the map is interesting as I have been on the Flatiron and watched a B-25 fly by at eye level to the South. The pilot and I were eye to eye. Wished I had my camera out on that one. I am very able ...

NTSB then came in and did a workup and recovery of the plane and will put together the puzzle and try and figure out what occurred. The SAR ...

Re: Successful Search & Rescue Missions with happy endings

Well, the cooler times are coming and so are the fun and games in the mountains. It was a very quiet August and September in Pinal County, however our team got calls from Apache county to help look for a lost soul in the Mt. Baldy area. We sent several teams up there multiple times, searching out of...

thanx Paul. People do not realize the harshness of the desert environment. One small mistake can mean death if you are not prepared.

Re: A Rescue To Remember

Thanx HJ. A few years ago we had a 20 subject plus 6 horse weekend during a freak snowstorm. First time we needed snowshoes in the Supes, last time also. Had a rescue the other day of a hiker hiking in 110 plus temps during the day. Not a good idea. I will update in a couple of weeks. Thanx for the ...
