This argument reminds me of the Beemer Bob story from years ago; however Bob was injured although not badly. He fell and hurt his knee, and therefore was unable to right his bike. He pushed his Spot tracker SOS button. But a miscommunication between the local sheriff and the local tribal police, meant no one went looking for him. SPOT guarantees they will notify the local authorities, but not that the authorities will do anything about it. His wife engaged authorities and local inmates the next day. The search began. He spent the night in the geographic center of nowhere (pretty anywhere in NM) and was totally pissed he did not get rescued that day. The inmates on line tore him a new one for riding alone, on a big bike in remote areas, ill prepared for the consequences. As for infamy, now there is a stretch of the NMBDR affectionately know as Beemer Bob Flats. A lot of things can contribute what someone will declare an personal emergency. I wasn't there so I wont judge. I agree we should conserve emergency resources for real emergencies. But some of these "rescues" give the first responders some good laughs, after the fact... and they need that. My daughter is a paramedic and some of her stories are hilarious, some are horrendous.
