What do y'all think of this? This had to do with a difficult SAR operation.

Here's the NH Fish & Game statement:

The two fellas got cliffed out while scrambling off-trail. Rumor is they were wearing flip flops. It sounds like they hopped out of their car and went UP: they didn't know where they were? Like at all? "He didn't know where he was, but could see the highway...."

Cabin Fever

I've seen some pushback that hikers shouldn't have to pay for rescue, the mountains should be a welcome place for all, newbies shouldn't be penalized....
But I can't imagine the push-backers actually read the details or understood the "hikers" were not hikers in the sense they were hiking the trail. They were just some dudes randomly scrambling up rocks from a parking lot. They didn't even know where they were. I guess they were just driving through.
