OK, game change. It appears all those who were going to camp out have backed out for one reason or anothert.

So we're meeting at the big parking area on Fairbanks Creek Road and riding from there, meet time is 10:00 AM. We'll head up the Fairbanks - Circle Trail towards Circle :)

Thank you to the 5 FST members that chose to redirect their Fairbanks Creek Road and Circle-Fairbanks Trail Head ride to the Olnes Pond search.
Your efforts helped to eliminate area and improve resource deployments.
Some even stayed for the remainder of search days.

I wanted to share with the team that the family and friends of the subject, Junior Leota, at the Olnes Pond search this past weekend thanked us for our service. One of the most difficult tasks I encountered at the search was accepting thanks from the wife of the subject after the search was called off and the subject still missing. She wanted me to let the team know how thankful she was for our service.

Thank you for sharing Garrett. And thank you for working so much out there.

Todd Talladay
Thank you to all the WSAR & PAWS members that put aside their personal time over a holiday weekend to support this search. Great effort by the team"

Be safe close to rivers...
