He's alive! Boyscout found!

MSNBC is reporting on their website. It’s good to see a happy ending now and then.

Excellent news! (fixed link)

Good to hear - I read a story about him earlier this morning and his parents didn’t seem too optimistic about the outlook at that point.

Unfortunately, an experienced hiker and mountaineer is still missing in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and the ground search has been called off.

Good news.

He’s gonna get at least a badge for this, right? Survival skills? Something?

And now that he’s safe, can I ask if I was the only one reading the reports of the scouts having artificial climbing walls and mess halls and thinking, “wusses.” This kid is no wuss.

Following missing people stories is a bit of a hobby of mine, and happy endings like this are all too rare. This completely made my day. I can’t even imagine the sheer joy his parents must be experiencing right now.

Finally, some good news for a change! I can’t begin to imagine how afraid he must have been, out there all alone.

Tonight he’ll go to sleep in a warm bed with a full tummy.
