Just How Big is "Big"?

In the on-going search in Nevada for Steve Fossett, sometime co-adventurer with Richard Branson, it seems hard to believe that he can't be found.

Coming from the UK, it's tough to grasp just how big Nevada really is. Let's see if this helps, though:

a) they are concentrating their efforts close to the CA border - so not all of it in other words,

b) search has expanded to an area the size of Massachusetts,

c) amazingly enough, so far, they have found 6 previously undiscovered airplane crashes,

d) if you're of a mind, there's still Utah, Arizona and all the rest to go.

A place to treat with respect, then ....
