It was behind a bolder and then later said it had been dynamited to close and camouflage the landmarks some. But Who has seen ? it has to exist to be seen, a paradox or leap of faith? I pine for the old days when everybody was still with the living... Some good stories and lively discussion.

As I understand from the posts that "Lost" put on this site, the rocks at the carrie site were very large. They should have been sticking up out of the snow and "Lost" would have been able to give you directions to nearly the exact spot he remembered. Did you see any sings of explosives having been used? The marks are quite obvious for years after explosives have been used and can be readily discerned. You're the type of person who would have noticed something like that. You would have also noticed if explosive marks were not present. It would be interesting to hear/read your opinion of the benefits/waste of going back.

If "Lost" couldn't see the boulders because of deep snow, then it would have been extremely difficult to find the place he was looking for. I wonder if you or your brother felt the fear, anxiety and trepidation felt by "Lost" while you were searching the area.
I will agree with you about my age, but there is a saying... (if only I can remember how it goes) something along the lines about taking care of yourself and ending up going out in a pristine body or coming in sliding headfirst and saying, "Whew! What a ride!!"
My life would be more of the "Whew! What a ride!!" response.
In the last few years, I have worked more overtime than I should have probably. (approx. 1500 hours in 2015, a little over 1100 hours in 2014 and roughly 800 - 900 hours in 2013) Couple that with a few health issues and I need to regroup to say the least.
Hitting a Chevy Silverado broadside at 55MPH when a (23 year old) kid turned left in front of me while heading home on my motorcycle didn't help matters (back in 2008). All in all, I feel that I am doing okay considering the alternative outcome to that one.
I have a lot to live for. Are you interested in opening up a cache?
