We are the "elderly" couple who want to sincerely thank everyone who aided in our rescue. Using our cell was truly done as a last resort. If a map had been available, we might not have missed a critical turn. The snaking trails in that vast acreage have no trail markings or signs and few landmarks which made the search unnecessarily difficult. It sure was great to get home!
