39. Really, just a user fee for the location and activity...
which would basically be an insurance policy. Say 1 out of 100,000 users need SAR, whih costs $1 million. 1000000/100000=$10 user fee. But it's already been brought up that we DO pay for these things, as part of our taxes. And moutain-climbing generates millions of dollars for the Oregon economy, with tax being paid at every transaction along the way. So the costs of these people being rescued every once in while is paid for--with their own tax money.
