Hell, I do it every winter all winter. LOL
If you’re lost...and you can start a fire....you make a BIG fire!!!!! Apparently there were trees....duh....wood
And thus, life continues to imitate The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
A little know-how and a basic kit goes a long, long way toward survival. Sounds like Mr. Kim kept his head and knew enough basic survival to get through in fine shape. Good for him.
And lucky he was found when he was. We’ve had a bit of snow over the last few days and are expecting significant snowfall starting tonight; at his elevation that could mean over ten feet.
Burning his dry socks was not a bright idea. I am glad he made it out safely. So many of these stories have a tragic ending.
I’m glad they found him and he’s OK. I’m no hiker/snowshoer and as a matter of fact, whenever I get the urge to exercise, I lay down until it passes, but WTF was he doing out on Mt. Rainier, in the middle of winter, ALONE?
Call me crazy, but I’d sure want to have someone with me when I got lost in the snow on a mountain in the middle of winter. But that’s just me...
