For some dumb reason, I can't link the AP story about New Hampshire.
Anyway, the jest of it is that NH was going to bill a hiker for his rescue in the tune of $25K. The hiker, hurt his ankle, got off the trail and state had to search for him for 3 days. The hiker eventually paid $1000, but who should pay the rest of the bill?
What do you think? Should taxpayers pay for rescues of hikers who get lost?
Do a Google search on AP for the full story.
