Search and Rescue crews had another busy weekend after an overdue rider east of Bend prompted a search late Saturday night. The overdue ATV rider was found okay early Sunday morning; but the outing serves as a warning to others. A chilly lesson for Jan May, 56, of Albany, Oregon had gone off solo without food or a cell phone. Family and friends searched first and then called in authorities. Crews found her around 1 a.m. She was cold, but otherwise okay. Sergeant Joe Deluca of Deschutes County says at least she was dressed well for the conditions: “Which was a great help; but, you know when we're dealing with inexperienced riders and don't have a knowledge base of that area, and don't realize how vast it is. There's really not too many people around; especially this time of year to give you a hand if something does go wrong." He says this area 20 miles east of Bend can be dangerous for non-locals and even people familiar with the area, because it's so desolate.” He says you should never ride alone, and you should bring maps, a cell phone and other tools like a GPS. It also can't hurt to bring some extra food and water.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
