    Holy Hannah that’s a very long way from where she started.
    I can’t wait to see the details, I am simply amazed, 17 days. Omg!

    I wonder if she is delirious from so many days lost in the forest.

    The Dutch girls lost in the Panama seemed delirious after 8 days or less. 16 days wandering the jungle without a phone or water seems quite miraculous.

    16 days. I thought 17 but just did the math. I can't believe it! Earlier I was trying to think of people trapped in earthquake rubble and how long could they live.

    How did she do it? No water. No food but an energy bar.

    Where are all our friends? This is stunning and beautiful news. I can't believe it.

    We rarely get such a good outcome!

    I’m wondering the same. I did not expect this outcome at all and am SO GLAD TO BE WRONG! Amanda, you are a fighter! What a tough woman! I also wanted to add, Praise not only God but ALL of the Search & Rescue that has been going on relentlessly since Day 1! I’m speechless!

    It's insane!! I can't get over it!!

    Oh how her family must feel. I hope she recovers well and quickly. Poor thing. Imagine trying so hard to stay alive and hoping so fervently for a rescue that never seems to come!

    Poor gal. But she made it. Man. She's tough. I would've probably lost my mind!
