CJ,I carefully read through the link you gave regarding the search for Donald Masters, and it seems that by now hopes are beginning to fade. Incredible to me that someone could just disappear like that.
Whats pathetic is that outside the motorcycle forums there was no support at all for more than 2 weeks. As they near the 3rd week now law enforcement is starting to get involved. As far as people just disappearing like that,I was in central Colorado a numbers back and when my old HD made it to the top of a mountain pass it went clank-clank and that was it. I coasted about 10 miles down the other side of the mountain to a campground. I was talking to the kid whose parents owned the campground and while riding his horse around the mountains behind their campground he found a airplane that had gone missing 15 yrs earlier with 3 skeletons in it. In basically what was his backyard.So as they move up to 3 weeks the chances of finding him alive grow smaller. By the time the "professional" search teams get out the snow will probably be on the ground.Whatever happens I wish Don and his family the best.CJ
