    Ive been there, without the Alzheimers though. When you get to a point that suction just has you. Took me a week to clean all the mud out my gun.

    Thank God for the folks who searched and found him. Family should check into Operation (or Project?) Lifesaver, a system using a wristband battery that can be tracked with a special antenna used by police to track missing children (autism) or wandering alzheimer patients. I understand it has been 100% successful. The only maintenance is changing the battery about once a year. I think Calvert Sheriff’s office uses it.
