in Mexico? Good thing he wasn't in China. He could have died for sure.

Ehhh, I had to do that uphill both ways just to get to school every day when I was a kid...

/you were lucky

The cold probably helped keep the inflammation down.

Did his daughter give birth too? What is with these long walk stories?

This. The trifecta is in play.

Oh how he wished if he could have long walked.

Father of the baby?

If only he had a device to call for help in case of an emergency.

Watch the documentary on Netflix called Touching The Void. Insane will to live. A guy with a broken leg is dropped into a crevasse on a mountain and is left for dead.

vudukungfu: in Mexico?


That might explain why he had such a tough time snowmobiling.

I should alert the Nick Brown I know about this.  He is much younger, so this must be his future.  Hopefully he'll heed my warning and not tear up the letter and let me think he still broke his leg in a snowmobile accident.  I'll have to get there ten minutes before the accident to try and warn him again.

are we converting Celsius to Fahrenheit?

How cold was it?
 
2014-01-22 10:51:17 PM
Uh, psst, Subby, below freezing is not below zero, in New Hampshire! Not Mexico either!

Yes. And he ate dirt on the way and was glad to have it.

Link fails on my mobile, so I don't know the C temp for this article.... But unless it was worse than -35C (-31F) the pregnant woman gets to tell him to take a 9-day hike.

I'd say the pregnant lady treking for 5 days in sub zero temps has the final call in this one.

so poor he had to paint the chanclas on his feet.
 
2014-01-22 11:57:43 PM
And the cops didn't empty their clips  magazines guns into him?  Where was this?!

Doug Scott scoffs at this. He broke both legs on the descent from "The Ogre" in Pakistan. He had to crawl on his knees for six days, starting at nearly 24,000 feet.

Russ1642: Watch the documentary on Netflix called Touching The Void. Insane will to live. A guy with a broken leg is dropped into a crevasse on a mountain and is left for dead.


The best part of that movie is when the guy is crawling down the side of the mountain for an eternity, and he gets that really annoying song as an earworm. I didn't know whether to laugh or be even more horrified. Actually I laughed. I've been off by myself and by day two, I'm singing the same song for hours and hours.

And you know what? People who go off into the wilderness on snowmobiles know what they're getting into. I would never take a sled off into the middle of nowhere by myself. I don't trust the farking things even on a trail. One wrong turn and you've buried it. Or buried yourself under it, like this guy. Those things weigh 600 pounds. Have fun with that.

Yeah, but most of them take cellphones. Get one of those cheap ones with no contract and just use it for emergency calls.

Damn Mexicans will do anything to sneak into this country and take our jerbs

A lot of places where you would go with a snowmobile don't have cell phone coverage.

Like the Adirondack Mountains in New York State, for example.

Why didn't he use a morphine auto injector to fix his broken leg?

Crawling survivalist trifecta now in play.
