May 9, 2011 – Many of us like to say we survived ConExpo-Con/Agg, but Rita Chretien is a REAL survivor. She never made it to the show, becoming stranded for 49 days in the wilderness in northern Nevada, where the vehicle in which she was traveling became stuck on a snowy logging road. She was found alive by hunters about 4:00 p.m. last Friday – seven weeks after she and her husband Albert, who own an excavating business in Canada, went missing. He is still missing. He left the vehicle to try and find help and never returned. Rita Chretien was reported in a fair condition at a Twin Falls, Idaho, hospital. Read the amazing story here.
