I wanted to thank everyone who was concerned and helped the effort to locate my wife LaVonne. She was a couple of days lare at the Onion Valley trailhead on a south to north JMT trek. She had to duct tape together her new ultra-light backpack most of the trip as the bottom seams failed.
She is now backpack shopping and I sent her a Garmin Inreach to improve our communications.
Thanks to all. I would address everyone individually but the original message thread was deleted, likely to not cause confusion after she was found.
Thanks Again!

Gerald, it wasn't deleted -- I moved it over into the "General Discussion" forum.
    Here's the link.

I felt it was important enough and more people would see it over there.

Very happy news! I'm glad that she was just experiencing some equipment failure.

Great news for what must have been a worrisome couple of days. I imagine she was generally ok other than her own pace and backcountry MacGyver skills to get to the OV trailhead. Best to both of you.
