    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Their family must be worried sick. Hope they have enough water and supplies and will be located soon.

    This story made the AP. Some more details:
    Officials launched the search last Friday night after the two men were reported missing. They had been hunting with another relative.

    "Shawn Higgins did not show up to a planned meeting area and after a few hours of looking for him, Trevor also failed to make it back to the roadway prior to dark where all three were to meet," Ward said.
    After failing to find the pair Friday night, search and rescue members of the sheriff's office, as well as local residents with knowledge of the terrain, on Saturday hiked into the area "and spent the day in bad weather searching for Shawn and Trevor," the sheriff said.

    From Oct 20:

    Since Higgins was reported missing, volutneers have been hard at work, looking for any clues that may lead to the missing man.

    But it's been a slow process. Rain, wind, fog and cool weather have been tough factors for the people on the ground. It's also made it impossible for any air resources to help out in the search.

    Even putting the weather aside, it is still a tough area to navigate. Steep terrain and heavy brush make it slow for the search.

    I'm absolutely heartsick that Shawn wasn't found. It may be next year's hunting season before he is found.
