Man found safe after grueling 2-day search

Two became lost in drainage near Junction Creek
Be prepared before heading into wild

These recommendations, courtesy of Butch Knowlton of the La Plata County Office of Emergency Preparedness, are for those planning a trip outdoors, even for short and local adventures:
Always let someone know your plan.
Bring tools to survive, such as water, fire starter, shelter and rain gear.
If search and rescue is looking for you, make yourself visible – use anything reflective to get their attention. Even the face of your cellphone can signal searching aircraft.
Get a Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue Fund card. Anyone with a current hunting/fishing license or boat, snowmobile or ATV registration is already covered. Visit and search CORSAR for more information.
