The Mining Journal of Marquette and the Daily Press of Escanaba report that the couple from Marquette County's Marquette Township became stranded Friday afternoon in Negaunee Township. The woman, also 62, left to find help but was unsuccessful and they spent three nights in the woods.
Authorities say that on Monday morning the woman was able reach a county road, where she was helped by a passerby. Rescue crews later recovered the man's body.
The woman was suffering from exposure and was treated and released from Marquette General Hospital. Names weren't released.

Sad sad. Some of the rides the crew has been lucky enough to go on has taken it's riders to some remote areas. One wrong turn. A GPS failure. Out of fuel. Bike breakdown. A disabling injury... Thanks for the reminder TW.
