Yep, I was in Montana from last Thurs-Mon, shortly after a confirmed sighting of the couple near Billings. Along Highway 200, very near where I have family (and on my travel route) there was another unofficial sighting. Everybody's kind of uneasy about it.

The way I see it, there are the creeps we know about, and the ones we don't. The latter outnumber the former, so it's always a good idea to use common sense when traveling.

Great words of wisdom. I think one of the best things one can do is to work at being VERY AWARE of what's going on around you. I think I've slipped a bit in this area, but am working to ramp it up again. Used to be I saw and heard and felt everything.

Captured 08/19

Escaped Arizona prison inmate, fiancee captured
By FELICIA FONSECA and PAUL DAVENPORT (AP) – 32 minutes ago
PHOENIX — An escaped state prison inmate and his fiancee who have been on the run for weeks were captured Thursday in northeastern Arizona, officials told The Associated Press.
Details were sketchy and Arizona authorities scheduled a news briefing late Thursday night to discuss the capture of John McCluskey and Casslyn Welch, who also is the inmate's cousin.
Officials in Apache County, Ariz., confirmed the arrests to the AP

Captured in Gabaldon Campground in Arizona.

Stay safe out there.

That's good news. I understand he was in his sleeping bag when the police arrived, all thanks to a ranger who saw an unattended fire.

We are in Santa Fe and on the way to Colorado and Utah so very happy to have these particular campers removed from showing up at one of our future campgrounds.

And what pieces of human trash they are. I hope I live long enough to see the three of them get a needle in their arms.

authorities said that McCluskey expressed regret at not having killed the U.S. Forest Service ranger who led to their capture.

I have been through the campground these jerks were captured in! I always wanted to stay there, but its a horse camp. Spectacular views of the white mountains in there.. very isolated.

I guess it would not have been such a great thing after all.
