Kudos to the various Search n Rescue people for their work. It's nice to read of another good ending to something that can easily turn otherwise. Thank you for your time and effort and for caring about hikers. Maybe people should wear a goat bell, then it might be easier to find them if they get lost.

If all these dumb A** texans would just stay home we wouldn't have to be wasting our rescuers time and our tax dollars to look for these idiots. First of all why break up from the group? Were our mountains a little to rugged for the desert rats feet? I've been on that trail many of times and it's virtually impossible to get lost if you just stick to your trails, you don't even need GPS if your just smart about things. Stop being an idiot and stay home....

So happy to hear that you have never made a bad or wrong choice. You, my Friend, are very fortunate.

This man did not come here with the intentions of getting lost & wasting tax payers money. Glad he came to check out our beautiful national forest. He is probably relived that so many groups were responding. Now if he was lost in "Mexico" the guy would sure be on his own. But this is why we pay taxes. For the resources and I am sure we had volunteers also because thats what kind of people you will encounter in New Mexico.

Child or Adult, Search and Rescue will be called and they take their job serious to safely find someone. glad it ended well!
