abhorrent1: sxacho: "I don't even know if we'll make it to the morning because we have no water."And she began hallucinating on the first night ? Something is missing from this story.
Rik01: used her lighter to try and signal........????Wouldn't it have been better to use the LIGHTER and start a campfire in the night?I can't help it, but the whole story is just so weird. I'll bet they learned all about hiking from a comic book. I understand if they ran out of water -- that happens -- but she was carrying a lighter, for Pete's sake!A lighter in the woods is a magic wand! Easy fire! You make a big, smoky fire in the day to guide rescuers and at night to provide warmth, light, chase off animals and to guide rescuers! A helicopter at night can spot a campfire even in a thicket of trees.Turn Suvivorman loose with a lighter and he'll be so delighted he'll stop biatching about having to lug his cameras around.Rule of thumb: when hiking in the wilds, start rationing water when you realize you're freaking lost! Also, carry more in your back pack than just water. A couple of cheap survival blankets, some trail rations, a few LIGHTERS and if not a cheap flash light, then a road flare or two. Nearly every drug store sells a small, minimal content first aid kit also.Maybe a can or two of dehydrated water.Get it? Dehydrated water?Just add water?No?Never heard of them? I guess you never heard of Canned Florida Sunshine or Canned California air.Before your time I guess./ (crickets)
DraconianTotalitarian: I never click on anything even remotely related to fox news, why do you crazy farksticks post this shiat?
CheekyMonkey: bruegel: And these two are why we should start charging for rescues. issue firearms to SAR, and deputize them with the instruction to shoot people like this in the head, instead of rescuing them. I'm not sure that I've ever heard a story of two people less deserving of rescue than these two.
nmemkha: Use drugs responsibly people.Psychedelics require a trip sitter. Not having a sober mind among you is asking for trouble.
kindms: Having been caught out in the wilderness overnight without water etc. I'm having a hard time envisioning 2 semi healthy adults going from lost to hallucinating in under 24 hours. Especially ones that would have stayed put after calling for help. Why would they leave the area where they called for help ?You have already made the adult decision that you are lost and are going to call for help. The next thing you do is stay put. sitting and waiting isn't going to make your body need a tremendous amount of water. There is more to this story. I would bet they were hallucinating before they got lost on that trail.
