Sad story, but a reminder...

11-Year-Old Boy Dies After Mom Says GPS Left Them Stranded in Death Valley - Science News | Science & Technology | Technology News -

I am positive when ya'll go out on the trails you dont rely 100% on the GPS and your cell phone AND DONT go alone....

Daily Driver 2010 Ford Fusion
Weekend Toy: 2008 Rubicon...
Expensive Toy: 1983 Cadillac Coupe DeVille

It's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog!

Don't go alone and carry an emergency kit suitable for the area you will be traveling.

And I have to ask why the dog is still alive but the son isn't...

"But it does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg." - Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, 1782

Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.

"It's in about as remote and isolated an area as you can find," Death Valley National Park Chief Ranger Brent Pennington told The Associated Press. "How she got to that point, I don't know."
Duh she was driving a JEEP.

"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the "present."
