"Who had the Blackhawk out there then, some good samaritan that happens to own a helicopter"



Mono SAR trains with air resources from numerous agencies. Most military aircraft for our county come from NAS Fallon.

It is rare that AFRCC will release a helo for a body recovery. However, these ships can use cases like Matthew's as an excuse for some training....and perhaps make something happen for the case in the process.

Matt is on my mind today.

Is Mammoth Lakes still covered in snow, or is there any thaw due to drought and heat in southern California?

Beautiful photos above!

I think of Matt often. I believe he is at rest among these magnificent peaks.
There's now just enough snow in the Sierra to make the Minarets really dangerous. Moats/crevasses may be hidden but not safe to travel over.
All of California is still very short of precipitation for the winter.

pacarockhound...Mammoth is around 38% of normal snowfall...Unless we get some major snow storms , summer access to the back country will come early...

Hi Biotch, I believe Matt was staying at site #164 in New Shady Rest.

What happened to your earlier advice:
What I suggested to maverick01 was that if he and his personal
friends that he knows and can vouche for their capabilites want
to go in and search...great. To try and enlist volunteers who
are complete strangers is to cross a line into very dodgy
territory.....a place where you do not belong.

be aware that you assume legal liability by merely organizing
this activity. It sounds borderline ridiculous but sadly, it's
the times we all live in. Anyone involved is exposed; well-meaning
people have been sued after a "volunteer" effort ended badly.
Piles of waivers won't help. Cragman's comment may be due to
feeling a legal and an ethical burden would be forced on him.

Does this not apply now?

maverick01....please take note that I am only interested in partners for my own efforts with people that I know......I'm in no way trying to round up myriad search groups amongst strangers.
