    I sure hate to hear that. I hope & pray that he can stay safe until help arrives.
    Causes me to wonder if they have all the search help they need on hand?

    Backpacking Light chief executive officer Ryan Jordan says Knight set a brush fire several miles from where he was last seen that attracted the attention of firefighters.

    Leave no trace, unless you're lost and need a few acres of plants to send a signal?

    If it is a matter of life and death for me, I'll do whatever reasonably possible to keep me alive. Starting a brush fire might not be the solution I would look for, but smoke can be seen for miles on the ground and in the air. I'd make every effort not to burn the forest down, but that's a minor consideration when it comes to my survival.

    Glad they found this guy.
