    are you serious? sounds like he just wants attention. who the heck gets lost/stuck near fiddlers lake and cant find there way back to the loop road for help? should trade his jeep in for a mo-ped.. please dont travel outside the confines of lander.. geez whiz.

  33. Albert Ross Meeker

    Oh c'mon Denny, give him a break. Haven't you ever done anything you later regretted, or were embarrassed about? We all have. I'll bet next time he takes his Jeep into the mountains he'll be a little more prepared. I'm just glad he gets another chance.

  34. Jacqueline King Shaw

    Thank God!

  35. Wendy Gimple

    So thankful you are safe Toby!

  36. Ashley Hueckstaedt

    Wow Denny. Things happen, and you do not know all of the details. So pull your egotistical head out of the dirt and recognize that this was a stressful situation for all of his friends and family! "Just wants attention" really? He could have died from dehydration in those 3 days, and if you are far enough off the main roads, trying to walk anywhere can be deadly, especially in the heat or cold. It was smart to stay with the car.
    Think before you say nasty judgmental things.

  37. Becky Scott

    So glad he is ok Michelle !! Thank God !!!

  38. Mary Marchetti

    Prayer does help. Thank God.

  39. Robbin Lee Hampton

    So very glad he is ok. Michelle
