    I would like to know why he was out at 5am anyway. I don't think that was very smart. I am so very glad that he was saved from this thing. I hope he learned not to go out alone at 5am regardless if he thought if he knew the territory.

    Plaudits to all involved in the hunt. We don't appreciate the good folk on rescue teams enough. Great going, gang! God bless.

    People need to stay out of that gorge. It's bad news.
