Preying for Randy and hoping this ends well. Everyone please take Forrest's advise and wait until spring.

RE: Treasure hunter missing
What FF says in the article is a little misleading... To my knowledge hasn't overtly said don't search in winter. He's hinted around it, but in ways (like the engines comment) that people take as clues. He's also said that if you know precisely where it is you can probably retrieve it in any weather.

In the end I guess people will make their own decisions. A solo rafting trip in winter when you've never rafted before isn't the best idea. I hope Randy comes out alright. Edit: He's been missing for 10 days (I hadn't counted yet... ) seems like this is just a sad story, folks.

RE: Treasure hunter missing
Breaks my heart. I've searched around that river a great deal and can't imagine stepping foot in it with any vessel.

I will say this...when he said you can probably retrieve it in any weather....I considered going out. I have in the winter. Never to do anything freaky though. I figured when he said wait though that it meant it's off some closed road and you can't go there without a snowmobile or something. I'm not doing that.

I emailed Forrest to ask if he can get the guys email address from the ex wife or friends so that we can search our blog/forums and others can figure out if they have communicated with him privately. Maybe it would help in some way if he was a regular.

I know that some aren't sure that Boo took his own life in great part because of this, but I 100% do as we were conversing by email before he did. If this man doesn't make it....to me this will be two.

RE: Treasure hunter missing
Just curious, but what do others think? Do you think he knew this was a possibility and was ok with it? I mean not ok, but willing to do this knowing it would be likely it could happen?

RE: Treasure hunter missing
The picture of Randy and his dog posted in the Santa Fe New Mexican I feel sure I've seen as someone's gravitar on Dal's blog. If he's a blogger maybe we can look for his blog posts to get an idea of where in the gorge he may havebeen headed. I just have my phone at present making it hard to navigate.

Could be some haven't taken their own lives because of this.
Just like the poem, you can read into it what you want.
