Seriously though, this is sad news.

You hike in Death Valley in the middle of summer, you're gonna have a bad time.

There's a reason it's called 'Death valley'

I wish there was a Stupid Patrol in places like Death Valley. This guy is dead because someone who knew better didn't tell this guy to go home.

"Hey, Stupid! Go home!"

There are just some things that you don't take on solo. Scuba diving, hiking in the wilderness, going into a strip club. Lots of things.

Hiking alone isn't a problem. Hiking alone while stupid is.

This guy thought he was macho enough to take on Death Valley in the summer. But being in shape doesn't make the heat go away, or provide shade.
 
2014-07-12 09:13:34 AM  
He wasn't actually in a 'wilderness' area per se (100' off any paved road in DVNP is 'wilderness') - he was near Zabriski point, one of the park's busiest sites. It was so hot NPS decided to chopper him out rather than rassle him out on a wheel.

Folks, carry lots of water and tell someone where you're going if you come hiking out here and take the time to accustom yourself to the mindbending heat before strenuous activity

Hiking alone is pretty stupid.  No matter how prepared you are, you can still twist an ankle and crack your head on a rock.

Really weird.  My wife and her bff put on The Half-Blood Prince last night.  I did what a normally do when movies that I don't really care about are on -- look up random trivia/cast info on IMDB.  His profile generated some discussion for it's pretentious opening line:  "A twin fisted existentialist, whose post-Nietschian sensibilities reject the lantern of the cynic in a quest for a sun that leaves no shadow."

Looking back on it, I think we know why he was out there now.

My parents, who are in their 60s, were in Death Valley the same day this guy died. But they weren't alone, and they were prepared.

If you look up info on him, he knew all kinds of martial arts, there's all kinds of pictures of him lifting weights,posing and looking studly. So yeah, he was one of those guys.

Death Valley has earned its name many times over, even today with all the survival tech humanity has developed its still not be trifled with.

I saw this yesterday on cnn.com when I clicked on the "Harry Potter actor found dead in the desert" headline. I wonder how many thought it was Radcliffe or Grint when they saw that.

Wasn't Zabriskie Point a Pink Floyd album?

That's pretty stupid.  I'd definitely recommend you not hike alone.

My sympathies to his family -- that's not a good way to go. I'm reminded of the woman who died on Mt. Rainier recently; she was very experienced, had written a lot of hiking guides, but she hiked alone, got caught in bad conditions, and died. I think this is a trap that people with a lot of experience can fall into -- after all, they've probably done lots of solo hikes over the years and been fine. It's easy to forget that Mother Nature has all the time in the world to take a crack at you, but if you make one mistake, you could be done. Hiking alone is often that mistake. Death Valley at the height of summer is another one. Anyone remember the German tourists?

Never, under any circumstances, bring a vacuum cleaner with you.

As a writer friend who grew up in Palm Springs (sorta) wrote in a recent piece, people in the desert don't go missing, they die.

His family and friends have my sympathies.

During an instant I mixed him with Argus Filch (David Bradley) but then I got to the silver bullet bit.  I feel kind of bad for being glad it is not Bradley.
