More On Backcountry Rescue Costs
Following up on my post about backcountry rescue costs: Now noted athlete and outdoorswoman Rosie O'Donnell sounds off about rescue costs, getting every single fact, as well as the overarching principle, wrong. Aaaargh. And personally, I'm not aware of any significant mountains where my skills would be useful in New Orleans, even though I'd love to go there.
Kudos to KATU for raising the right counterarguments.
UPDATE Dec. 23: A nice opinion piece in the Chicago Tribune also gets it right.
UPDATE Jan. 11, 2007: As does this Salon.com article, quoting my friend Steve Rollins.
