That story doesn't make any sense whatsoever. He had a cell phone; it was turned on and was able to be triangulated. Why didn't he call for help? Mapquest doesn't give information about the suitability of the road - do printed maps? Were there any warning signs? If there were (and my admittedly limited experience is that they're assiduous about warnings on dangerous back roads) and he ignored them, would have have taken any notice of similar warnings in Mapquest or on printed maps?

My BS sense is tingling.
