Someday you may be that fool and wish like hell the wonderful SAR guys are out there looking for you. Foolish is only a matter of opinion and I personally find your comment that of a fool in Mamby Pamby land!

My condolences too are for the family, and I hope the dog is ok. [-o<

But didnt he read the avy reports or look outside at the weather and snow conditions?
Its been ultra-dangerous for several days.

Please don't be a Captain Hindsight...Trying to learn from an accident is one thing, but making blind assumptions and chewing out the person(s) involved without knowing specific details is dumb.

Condolences to family and everyone involved.


Well said Eric!
