It is never a good time for a tragedy of this type. But at this time of year it impacts all of their families and those that are close. The people doing their utmost best to rescue these hikers have worked tirelessly and should be praised for their valiant efforts. The weather in that area has been terrible and rescue difficult. We should keep a good thought that the remainder are found, hopefully alive.
I read on another board that there are/were Emergency Locator Transmitter rentals available for $5. Why on earth would you not rent one (or three)? They'd probably be home swapping tall tales by nnow, instead of dead and missing.
