EMT's and ATV's to the rescue.

Especially interesting to me in that he's a "neighbor" from the New Orleans area. I don't know him, but there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet. Like most of mine :-)

It's good to know they take the ATV's up there. The day last spring when I did my tendons, I never thought of that -- only that I was inaccessible by both ambulance and helicopter and would have to hoof it or be carried on a litter by rescuers also on foot. I never thought of ATV's.... Granny MacGyver here still can't get used to these newfangled ideas.

I'm glad "Sarge" is OK and reassured to hear how smoothly his rescue went!

Small world indeed. I am willing to bet I met Sarge when I hiked the AT in '97. That Sarge was the only black man I met on the trail. He was the right age, retired from the service and recently widowed. He was indeed a nice guy.
Small, small world.
