  1. I’m a huge fan of your blog and I was wondering what your guys thoughts on paying for search and rescue efforts. It’s such a huge spotlight right now all over Hawai’i and generally wanted to know what you guys think of it.

    • Against it. If there was a fee you would have people who do need a rescue that would hesitate b/c of the cost and that would make things worse. It’s better for the community as a whole to keep it free unless there are large amounts of abuse of the system.
