...but I am

--from idaho by Iridium satellite

hallucinating, heaven, or salvation for your soaked exhausted and half-frozen to death vloggist

not sure if this place is real, but i don't think i would have made another night in the wilderness.

soaked, rain turned to snow, unbelievably rugged terrain, lost 7 lb., glad to have found this place.

landing strip in elk meadow.

flying out of wilderness at 11 a.m. tomorrow.

i hope i am not freezing to death in a mountain creek, hallucinating this vlog.

check the link and pray there really is a Root Ranch.

wrong link above, thank god!

    I'm just glad you survived and weren't eaten by bears, my child.

    How do you know you lost 7 pounds? Did you bring a scale, but not a tent?

    I hope you don't get pneumonia ...

    A sight for sore eyes this morning, seeing you in back in the lineup! Welcome back to civilization. Looking forward to your recovery and a full report...was that Burt Reynolds in that photo?

    Jimby, it's good to read your Vlog again! We were starting to worry last night!
    I am expecting a full week of exciting, action-packed vlogs from this wilderness expedition!

    Glad you made it back in time to watch your beloved Wolverines play State. Noon Saturday on the Big Ten Network! Probably 10AM in Idaho.
    Was this worse than the 10K you swam in AC in 2004,or your Puget Sound hypothermia experiment?

    I am not a praying man, but I do thank the Big Man for keeping my twin alive and safe in Grizzly bear territory!
