lost and found

Tom and Tamitha Garner went missing in the harsh backcountry of Utah 10 days ago. A rescue team has been out looking for them since. After spending eight nights stuck in their pickup truck, they were finally discovered by a team that was trying to reach a different family stuck in a cabin. I went out to the home of Tom and Tamitha's family, who had been wrecked all week not knowing where they were. Their daughter, Krystal, left, and Tamitha's brother, right, hugged each other in joy shortly before leaving to go meet them. Unfortunately, one search and rescue volunteer died while searching for them.

Realizing that there was some great audio coming from both of them, I used the hand dandy horrible quality mic on the back of my fancy camera. It's good, though, in situations like this where you don't have a recorder. Watch and listen

Tight work Tim. That iron maiden shirt in #3 is gold.

I love how concise this is, like a perfectly rounded capsule of the story. I love the audio, and the whole thing. This is one of your best Tim.

All I can say is Krystal's got a wicked Maiden shirt \oo/ (damn, looks like Mr. Henry noticed it first). Nice work Tim.
