I think so too, but this left me confused. I mean, why? Did he really think they would ever get down, or was it just a gesture to them? He could have used it for sure, so I'm leaning toward it being a gesture to them, an honor of sorts.
I thought that was strange too...I mean, those guys weren't going anywhere on their own. What a nightmare.
Agree, it was strange.. My only thought is that after two and a half days straight in the death-zone, they were not in the right frame of mind. Altitude was for sure getting to them. Wilco was having major hallucinations even.
