New Hampshire Cracks Down On Search And Rescue Costs

New Hampshire Cracks Down On Search And Rescue Costs: It is noted that New Hampshire has spent a total of $1 million over the past 10 years on search and rescue activities.  Of that $1 million, only $25,000 has been recuperated.

How do you feel about being charged for search and rescue? [Interesting. It’s a lucky thing I’ve never needed that sort of help. Then again, I believe in Daniel’s first rule of the mountains, when in doubt, head down and/or back. Seems like 99% of all mountain tragedy’s occur because people keep going up to what must be “right over that rise”. Second rule is never tie yourself into a rope with someone who you wouldn’t give your life to/for/with. That rope’s a contract of overwhelming strength.]
