If anybody needs to borrow a bike to help with the search efforts, mine is available. Crf450x. Call me if you want it. 602 451 8262
Now that Tom's been found, can I ride the bike?

Can't wait to here story.
Don called me earlier (thanks Don) to inform me with the news that Tom is missing . I was scared fearing the worst. So I start praying in my heart that it'll end up good. Thanks Ed and Don for the follow up, after I hang up the phone with u this morning I was half way in my gear and ready to take off for the search (I have an idea where) I called 3 riders to ask if they can join me. But no luck. While I am putting my gear on my little boy was playing with my phone and said: "daddy look phone call", that was from Ed again to inform that Tom OK thank God, then another text from Seabee1...

Recover the bike

Just finish talking to Tom and we are planning to recover the bike soon. We need 4 or 5 strong guys to lift the bike with ropes from a drop and then get it to our jeep about 1 and half mile from the location.

If the bike is accessible by 4x4 trail, I'll put my truck just about anywhere. I have a winch and full recovery equipment, snatch blocks, etc. My broken ribs will not allow me to help with lifting, but I will be happy to provide transport and recovery vehicle if needed. I'm just chilling at home, let me know.

Tom will show us some pictures of the site soon. I don’t think he will be in good condition to recover the bike today or tomorrow. He is talking about Monday. Let’s hope he gets better soon. After sleeping in the cold and crawling some rooks to get out he was able to signal a Polaris rzr very early in the morning still in the dark.
He doesn’t have any worries about the bike since it is so difficult to find and take out.
My hope is that he can get better tomorrow to plan a trip so we all can help with the bike.

I sent a PM to Bronco Driver earlier to modify the thread title as well.

OK. Good to know. Let's wait for Tom to get better and let us know when can we do it.
