Excellent news!!

From the OP link:


Two of the family members walked out and were found by a Bureau of Land Management employee, according to Josephine County Undersheriff Brian Anderson.

The area where the family got stuck is in southwestern Douglas County near the Curry County line. The area is inaccessible by vehicle due to a heavy snow pack, but a search and rescue operation is under way to get to the family.

Very few cell towers in that neck of the woods, as they say! The largest concentration of cell towers in in the 1-5 area, miles and miles from where they were. That area of Oregon is sparsly populated in the 1st place.

Heck, our next door neighbors can't get their cells to work in their house, and we are in the city!

That's what they said, That's why they went for help. After they heard that they had quit looking for them. (or it least in that area.)

Great news!!! I was so fearful we would hear of another family murdered or never to be seen again. This news definitely put a smile on my face and a little more faith in my heart!

My husband who is a Electrical Engineering student in his third year (so I feel knows what he's talking about) said the TV signal has a much further range then a cell phone signal. He said that is not strange at all that they had TV signal but not phone signal.

PORTLAND, Oregon (AP) -- If not for their wrong turn in the mountains of southern Oregon, the case of Elbert and Becky Higginbotham might well have lingered in an in-basket of the cash-strapped office of the sheriff of Navajo County, Arizona.

Eleven months ago, they'd been caught with a small amount of methamphetamine and a shotgun, deputies said, but they agreed to cooperate with investigators.

Then they disappeared.

They turned up in a big way last Tuesday, momentary national celebrities when they were rescued with four relatives from a snowbound motor home in Oregon's Coast Range. Lost and stuck in the snow, the six had been missing for more than two weeks.

Now Elbert and Becky Higginbotham have vanished again -- with warrants out for their arrest.

The Higginbothams were reported Monday by relatives to be heading back to Navajo County on their own, in the same motor home that had been retrieved from the mountains.

they are bound to show up on a "my Name Is Earl" episode....

This whole story kinda cracks me up...they headed to the coast an entirely stupid way...took an RV 4-wheeling, got stuck in the snow but because mom was concerned about y2K had a trailer load of food, watched themselves on tv...

After they were found and everyone is proud of them for surviving in their food filled, and warm RV for 2 weeks, Grandma and Grandpa are wanted for meth!!

Do ya gotta wonder how they got stuck in the snow in the1st place?
