Yet another searcher needs rescue
Not sure what is up with people, but someone else searching for the treasure in winter in Yellowstone needed rescue:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3dhUCFI...e=youtu.be

Kpro talked to this guy and they discuss it on AGK Saturday night.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjuGk_O2...e=youtu.be

Go to 16:00 to start the discussion. According to kpro, this man is "an experienced mountaineer" although she never fully answers Toby's point about the details of this adventure. Those details include the man lying to the park about the reasons for his private snowmobile permit and going into a closed area, etc.; not to mention going alone (according to kpro), rappelling with a too-short rope, THEN jumping off the end of the rope. ??! Sorry, but none of that says "experienced" to me.

Here's the timestamp to the call with Kristie regarding the above.

The comments in the chatroom were not as sympathetic.

RE: Yet another searcher needs rescue
if having a lot of experience makes one smarter, then there are a lot of people who should be smarter than they actually are

i read twitter a lot and there are a lot of good examples of this on there. some people tweet alot of dumb things about the law. like stuff that is literally false and contradicts the actual law. but what makes it funny is they preface by saying about themselves (for example) they've spent say 20 years practicing law and they are a former state or federal attorney or something. (and they aren't lying believe it or not)

and the entertainment comes when they inevitably get a large number of replies from people who also have law degrees and experience and point out how unequivocably wrong they are, and provide the proof with citations

it just shows something about human nature i guess. there is a reason why somebody came up with the phrase, you can't fix stupid.

edit: my comment isnt intended to be rendering any opinion on the person in the story. i don't really know enough about him or what happened. im just responding to the general concept of someone having "experience". to me it is neither here nor there as to whatever were the important factors that led to needing rescue

Thanks, Toby. I dont think Kristie ever answered your excellent question, certainly not with any specificity.

I'd like to know what part of "wait till the mud dries" did he not understand. Here me all and listen good. Nah. he just took the wrong rope. When Fenn did it, his was longer.

Please, AJ, give us something we can really get excited over. This winter has been just the worst with yawnings. I am so ready for the 2020 surprise. Hope its a real I opener.

That’s crazy. There should be no snow on the ground when you search. An 80 year old man wouldn’t go out in the snow, rappel down a cliff, or anything else. He walked to a hidey hole and placed it in a rock crevice or in the nook of a tree burl and walked out.

It's a personal decision whether to get excited over any particular thing.
I just read about a young rapper who died recently (apparently from an
accidental drug overdose). You could get excited over that if you want.

I admit that my posted yawning isn't highly likely to excite anyone, so I'll try not to overdo it. Maybe posting something helpful -- or at least informative -- would be better. Still, it depends on value judgment.
I just saw Bernie on TV. Bye bye, Bernie. What if Hillary decides to join
this treasure hunt?

Even experience can't fix stupid, in some instances. And neither can
death.
