Who takes an infant four-wheelin'?
Don't get me wrong, I'm glad they're okay and now that kid will live long enough to kick one of the adults in charge in the shin, but two observations:
--Since when do jeepers not keep survival gear in their vehicles? They should have had everything they needed to survive comfortably for a few days. The Rubicon Trail can and does mangle very advanced rigs--I've walked stretches of the thing and it is brutal. Plus, no winch?
--Article says they were found "just east of Loon Lake." Know what's at Loon Lake? Roads, campgrounds, a powerplant (often staffed) and a lodge. A map or the GPS on that phone might have told them that.
End of rant.
