MY NEPHEW MIKE LOST IN MOUNTAINS 17 HOURS


LARRY ON THE LEFT. MIKE ON THE RIGHT.
Last weekend was my nephew Larrys Birthday.July 30th.So a bunch of my nephews and neices and freinds went up to Ice house to camp for the weekend and a celebrate Larrys birthday.Also Mike is engaged to be Married toEileen in May. So they were all hanging out.Mike and a couple of the guys decided to take their dirtbikes around 6p.m. Well on the way back.Mike made a left and the others made a right.And he ran out of gas.Within thirity seconds he was lost. They waited for him to come back.And hours went by.And they began to worry.So they all started looking in pitch black.Cold mountain air. Around Midnite They called the parents Eileen called hers and they were two hours a way and they were driving up to help search.She was scared at this point. Then they called my Sister Bonnie(the one that had the heart attack in Jan) And she headed up. Hours and hours going by,They called in a search and resue team.Camping next to them was a group Called Church of Hope.Mike&Larrys Sister Felicia went over and asked for prayers,They prayed with her. And By 1030 a.m. they found him;Alive and ok. A little shaken up.He heard bears all night.In fact right across the path a man had gotton mauled by a bear week earlier.And my sister waited till they found him to call me.Because of my Ulcer.Thank God he's ok and this weekend is his Engagement party wedding. Wow,you never know. Well take care and drop back by soon]

  7. I know how quick you can get lost in the woods...once me and Danny were deer hunting and he told me to stay right where I was in the woods till he went to the truck and came back...well dumb me walked away from where we were and turned around and at that point I was lost and scared and screaming my head off for Dannny! After a little bit, he found me! lol But I was so scared during that little bit..so I can only imagine what your nephew went through for 17 hours. I am so happy it turned out good and he was found. By the way, Danny was my husband who died of a massive heart attack in Jan. of 2006. He was only 51. You can read my first blog...HORSESHOE BEND and catch up...the link is in my profile.
    God bless,

  8. WOW John! That was some pretty scary stuff, especially about him hearing the bears all night. I would have been crazy with worry, guess thats why you werent told til they found him. I bet he will stick close and stay together from here on out...whew, glad all ended well and no one was hurt!
