As the days go by and it seems less and less likely that he will be found alive–though I continue to hope. I enjoyed his adventures and have posted about them–specifically, his solo round-the-world feat. Thus, I joined the Mechanical Turk hunt for Steve. I didn’t have much time to offer in the image search, but felt his adventures had given me so much pleasure that wanted to do what I could.
I’ve flown in a small airplane up the back side of the Sierra Nevada mountains and also into the desert area around Baker, California, and know how difficult it would be if a problem–weather or mechanical–arose. There are flat areas that are possible safe landing areas, though remote. I can only hope.
