8-17-09: I have spoke with MR over the phone and confirmed his report.
MR seems to me a credable witness, and is familiar with the areas he discribed in the report. I have no reason to believe this report is not true. He is a avid mountain biker and spends every weekend in the woods riding, camping, hiking and hunting.
