Reading about all these rescuers of hikers and backpackers brings up a 
related idea.  How much do we personally or as some sort of group 
contribute to SAR?
Every year at our county fair I contribute to our local SAR. Usually 
they have some sort of raffle but I just make a contribution. I've got 
too much stuff already as well as having no use for whatever they are 

The SAR teams do a tremendous job. Let's give them our $upport!
