And just adding to my post above, what I meant was he's one of thousands of individuals who are out of the jurisdiction of a local police force that has issued a warrant for an arrest. Police do not actively pursue these individuals unless there is serious criminality involved, and if such is the case, typically they'll secure a Canada-wide warrant.


And why is he suspended from the forum? Jealous of his writing style?

Was he suspended or just chose to not continue?

He was suspended when Mike started getting wigged out about his website being associated with a guy on the Crimestoppers mugshot page. Especially when Paul used the site to share his evasion plans.

And I think Facebook took him down for suspected election fraud or something similar? Does he have a presence anywhere on the internet these days?

Geoghegan spun quite the yarn there, as evidenced by producing no evidence to back his accusations. I don’t believe shutting down the page had anything to do with Geoghegan, though, but it definitely hurt Hammond’s campaign to have to go on the defensive.

Geoghegan’s mayoral run remains one of the oddest political pursuits in Victoria’s history.

Lake Cowichan and West Shore RCMP are searching for a pair of missing boys from Langford who failed to return home from a trip to the Cowichan Lake area on the weekend.

 

Dylan Deroy, 18, and Jordan Phillion, 15, were last heard from on Sunday, July 5, when Deroy’s cell phone was used near the 300 block of Gibbins Road in North Cowichan. Police say there has been no cell phone activity since then. Police say they are concerned for the well-being of the boys.

 

Police believe the boys may be travelling on back roads toward the Lake Cowichan or Youbou area in Deroy’s white 1996 GMC Sonoma pickup truck. They had only packed for a day trip, and police do not believe they were prepared to camp or spend the night.

hopefully they stay nearby the truck if it's just a mechanical breakdown.  they should be ok overnighting in it even if it gets a bit cold.

Hopefully they learn that you don’t head out onto the back roads without any indication of where you’re headed.

this is good news. not going to lie, the first thought that popped into my head was an Alberni Boys situation so thankful this was the outcome.

First thought in my mind was the three Sooke boys scenario.

Good outcome, though.

Meanwhile a 65-year-old solo male hiker is missing in Strathcona.

A Nanaimo couple missing in the bush for three days were found alive and well on Saturday. Nanaimo RCMP said Tamara Sandulak and Cody Martin, and their dog, Rex, were found at Moriarty Lake, about 35 kilometres west of Nanaimo, at 8:15 a.m.

Their pickup truck got stuck in deep snow near Moriarty Lake, and they decided to stay in the truck for warmth in the hope that they would be found.

 

 

“They could hear choppers overhead, but they couldn’t be seen,” said Const. Gary O’Brien.

________________________

 

The couple had only prepared for a day trip and had just run out of food and water. On Saturday morning, they decided to walk out and find help. After a short distance they got cell reception. They called a family member and their location was found through the phone signal.

sounds like they could have used a signal panel.   seems like cheap insurance.

They should have had a campfire going so the choppers overhead could see that as human activity. Even a tiny bit of smoke will get seen by the trained eye.

But what you do is you prepare a smack load of cedar branches. When you hear choppers, you place them on the fire and it creates a thick, black smoke that can be seen for miles.

yes.  on the other hand they did not stray too far from the vehicle.  that is good overnight protection.  it might seem bloody cold but it's pretty airtight against wind/cold.

Moriarty Lake is surrounded by clearcuts. Why they didn’t make themselves known is the big question I have. Snow is helpful in this instance, too. You carve a big X into the snow or whatever. A campfire would have been a beacon seen for miles and miles away.

^I guess if you are venturing out in the backwoods carrying a lighter or matches would make sense, but if you are just going fishing from the shore of a lake, I dunno.

After drinking the water they’d brought, they filled a Gatorade bottle with snow and turned on the truck to melt it. “We were drinking little sips, here and there. she said.

 

On Thursday afternoon, the news on the truck radio said people were looking for them. They also heard helicopters searching for them.

On Friday morning, it was snowing and they decided to hunker down. “We watch survival shows and we knew if we started walking we’d get cold. We could hurt ourselves and that’s a really big problem,” said Sandulak.

The weather was supposed to be clear Saturday so they decided to walk out. They duct-taped their shoes and stuck their feet in garbage bags, then back in their shoes.

When the sun came up around 7:30 a.m., they were on their way. They walked for about 45 minutes in knee-deep snow then found tracks from a friend who had come looking for them on Thursday.

“Those tracks were a silver lining because they saved us from walking in the deep snow. We got more energy and a little more excited. … Then all of a sudden Cody’s phone goes ‘Ding.’ He said: ‘Did you hear that?’ I’m like ‘Are you being serious?’ ” said Sandulak.

“We rushed to get it out of the backpack and he had a whole bunch of text messages.”

Martin called his mother who was so excited she dropped the phone. Then he talked to an RCMP officer and sent him their location from the backroads map app on his phone. “They said: ‘Stay put. We’re sending the chopper.’ ”

Sandulak wants to thank everybody who helped search for them. People have already offered to help them retrieve their truck.

She’s hoping this won’t put an end to their adventures. The experience will just make them more prepared when they’re in the backcountry, she said. And she hopes their experience will make other people more prepared.

Having once found myself in a situation where I had to figure out a way out of the woods, these guys sure left a low or low hanging fruits behind, and they watch survival shows?

You start with a massive fire. Get it going, keep it going. It helps you melt the snow, it keeps you warm, and alerts searchers to your location. Next step is you make your down the roads to leave clues, or in this case, save several days of searching for you by acquiring a phone signal. It’s not like you’re scaling down a cliff or are lost.
