Rescue times are getting better. Single engine transatlantic used (1994) to require a hefty axe to build a shelter and 10,000 calories of food. I was told I could expect rescue by...Spring. Now it's a snow saw and 500 calories.
Mind you, just last week it took 72 hours before the military could launch to look for a lost snowmobiler from one of the Northern Labrador communities. They found him, but too late.
Still, at least there's no black or grizzly bears in the deep midwinter!
