Mission Search & Rescue was called to Norrish Creek Forest Service Road to assist two stranded 4×4 enthusiasts. They were well off the main road that others were using and were very stuck. It took almost 3 hours to reach the subjects and get them out of the area. They were also lucky that our 8 wheeled Argo was able to extract the vehicle as well.
Just a reminder to all back road and back country enthusiasts – Be Prepared! These young men were not dressed or prepared for the conditions. Ensure you keep extra clothing, blankets and food in your vehicle if you are heading to the back country. And tell someone where you are going and when to expect you back. Again, these young men were fortunate to have cell coverage, because it is normally very spotty in that area.
