Back in June "Two guys from Boston" found a missing black box high in the Andes, then reddit was awesome and made us internet famous. Now Outside Mag has written a piece on us. Isaac and Dan here, Ask Us Anything! AMA

Hey Reddit, thanks for the huge outpouring of support last June! We are those two guys with desk jobs who decided to go recover the flight recorder from the Eastern 980 crash in the Bolivian Andes...something 2 governments and multiple earlier expeditions had failed at. And we somehow pulled it off! High altitude is a bitch but we a) didn't die and b) managed to find what we were after. We documented and buried human remains and brought home the cockpit voice recorder and a roll of magnetic tape.
The parts of the black box that we recovered are still sitting in my apartment, as the NTSB and FAA wont analyze the voice recorder until the State Department says it's ok. Help us get their attention so they will do the right thing?
Oh ya, and ASK US ANYTHING!
