Very SMART of them, to think of using this as a Training Exercise!

...The volunteer crew typically rescues stranded hikers and motorcyclists who careen off the freeway onto steep, rugged terrain, search-and-rescue reserve chief Mike Leum said.
"We'll always be able to say, 'it's not heavier than a fossil,'" Leum said.
