Bet you'll hike with a map from here on out, eh Scott?

Glad you're out safely; when the snow starts to fall, the North Cascades are no joke.

It's on a list of dangerous roads, so it must be perilously dangerous!

To us it's just another mountain road.† I did get a bulge in my tire when I drove it back in July, so maybe it's a dangerous road for tires.

I popped a front tire in my Subaru on a sharp rock at Dead Horse Point.  There was nowhere to jack up a car safely and I had to drive on it all the way to the pavement.  Shredded almost beyond recognition.  But you take that part of the road at 5 mph so it's not like you're going to lose control and go over the edge.

Sorry for the off topic post, I wanted to share my experience and confirm about it being dangerous for car tires.  (No problem on a gravel road bike though.)

I read the first page of this thread last week, and just caught up with this amazing and inspirational result.  Thank you Nancyann, SAR and all those involved! True heros!

I thought this was movie worthy, then my girlfriend told that part of city girls inspiration was the Witherspoon movie.

can any one say sequel?!? $$$

who do you think they should get to play Nancy ann?

if another takes the bait, we could make this into trilogy!

or like that time I took a video of my turkeys gobbling, then a video of them gobling at their gobling..◊12....

Coverage Alert~!

I'm pretty sure the Nancy Ann story is going to be on CBS evening news at 6:30, in just a few minutes.  Stuff like that they usually save for the end so maybe it wont air until close to 7.

The promo said something like "a story about how being nosy can save a life".

You can probably see it on the CBS Evening News website too.

Thanks rbuzby, yes, it is on Steve Hartmanís On the Road 2 1/2 minute segment tonight. We did allow them to come to my house to do the interview a few days ago, and they were very nice. I donít get good internet up here, so I only heard the audio from the online version, and a little of the video, but I am pretty sure our Calendar Contest photos are in the video. The cameraman asked me to scroll through NWHikers while he filmed me, so naturally I went to the contest to see if there were any new entries. biggrin.gif
I hope to see some more entries this weekend before the deadline!
I took Katharina to SeaTac today, and when Condor Air found out who she was, didnít charge her the expected $180!
She is going to be filmed by a German news agency when she returns home, where her family is anxiously awaiting her.

Thanks for the update Nancyann.  Nice to hear Katharina is on her way home to a happy reception.

I saw the segment on CBS just now and it was really nice.  I noticed Hartman had his red plaid flannel shirt on at one point.  I love how some people dress like that when they come up here to mingle with us frontier types.  hockeygrin.gif

He and the cameraman are from upstate New York, so the shirt was legit. agree.gif
I just saw the TeeVee version and YES, our Calendar Contest photos are in the clip!

Saying goodbye (for now) to Katharina at the airport.

Thanks, Rich, we were happy that they focused on how Katharinaís faith in humanity was restored.
On another positive note, Sargent Adams said that there has been an increase in donations to SAR since the interviews.
The pilots and I have been invited to the German Consulate in Seattle next week for a function launching a year of events promoting German-American relations. After that, I hope to be done with media events. biggrin.gif

Looked like he was dressing for an episode of "Hear Come the Brides!"



Thanks for being such a great Ambassador.

About the time you are tired of talking about this, someone will probably invite you to Germany, so you can go over there and talk some more.  Be sure to file a trip report.
