Sadly, it is now reported that his body has been found. He was a medical doctor from Carson City.

Gosh darn it. He's from where I live. Was hoping the rescue from the granite slab on tonight's ABC news was him. Sadly, it was not.

Sad news. May he rest in peace.
Wish his family peace and strength during this hard time.
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
