    Thanks Kevin. You nailed some good points.

    I'll add some to your list.

    What about the guy and his family who got lost last winter driving in Washington?

    What about all the people who chose to stay in New Orleans?

    Or what about a smoker that smokes in bed and burns his house down? Should he have to pay the fire department?

    I agree with you about the snowshoes. You rarely bring snowshoes on Mount Washington. Above treeline they aren't needed and below you count on a boot pack. Its a risk, but one most people choose to take.

    That's what they're saying, hard to believe, though. His core temp when they got him at the hospital was 70 degrees. The doctor said he had never seen anyone in that condition survive. I'm guessing though, he's never seen too many in that condition.
