That is mine too Charlie, a kick back. Pays to be out of the way when it goes down ;-)

Shopdog, I think you hit the nail on the head. Just like the guy who has never been lost in the mountains; either lying to hasn’t been in them much. My dad packed and guided on the Lochsa in central Idaho. He was gathering firewood when the fog moved in. He finally sat down to wait it out. Nobody else in camp at the time. Sat there 1/2 day about 200 feet from camp. Lots of nights he couldn’t see his horses ears on the trail. No idea where he and about 30 or 40 head of mules and horses were. His saddle horse would bring him to a line camp and he’d know which way to head out to the next one. Hubert Nettleton of Owyhee County, ID offered him any 3 of several hundred head of horses he had on the ranch for King, the horse he rode up there on the Locsha. No deal ;-)) Sort of off topic, but illustrates the point.
