This blog was started over 5 years ago as a way to keep our SAR members engaged in SAR activities between callouts. It turned out there was a lot of interest out there in stories about search and rescue and an audience of blog visitors grew and spread to several continents.
But it is now time to turn this pursuit over to the active JoCoSAR members who are posting their stories on the Josephine County Search and Rescue Facebook page here.
Over the 63 months it existed, there have been over 480,000 page-views of over 8,000 posts that drew over 1,300 comments from readers including from search subjects and their families. The blog will stay up for now so you can find archived posts, but there will be no new posts.
I can't thank enough those who submitted their personal accounts and those who sent links to stories to share. From my perspective, the very best posts were the ones written by SAR members telling their perspectives on a mission.
Thank you… it was fun.
