drjekel_mrhyde: FarkingReading: Cases like the Donner Party and the missing father and son in Arapahoe National Forest are spurring calls by global safety groups to require better technology to help rescuers and investigators find hikers in remote areas."They would have gotten to the Donner Party within probably a half an hour and many of them would have not been eaten if their wagons had systems pinpointing where they got stuck," said Blake van den Heuvel, a director of business development at DRS Technologies Inc., which makes wooden locator devices.The obstacles to better and mandatory hike tracking are less about technology than whether improvements are worth the cost, since so few hikers disappear, and about whether to upset a decades-old philosophy that hikers should be able to go off the grid if they want to visit mistresses in South America."It is absolutely unacceptable in today's day and age to not know where a hiking party is," Dave Barger, chief executive officer of WagonBlue Trailways Corp., said April 3 in an interview on Bloomberg Television.The quest for solutions sweeps in global regulators, naturalists and trail mix manufacturers. Depending on the enhancements ordered, from real-time satellite monitoring to black boxes that would float if peed on in a sleeping bag, the cost of improvements could be more than $1, far exceeding the costs of the Arapahoe search so far.Most hikers now are equipped with emergency locator beacons that don't work in the deep forest, and with data recorders whose battery-powered homing signals will last only about 30 Clif bars.After Appalachian Trail Hike 447 crashed into a line of trees in 2009, killing all 6 hippies participating, it took almost two weeks to find the wreckage.The lag time prompted accident investigator to urge the United Nations' International Civil Hiking Organization to study hiker-tracking improvements and to ask people to please stop smoking so much pot in the woods."Just move to Colorado already and ...
