Some places preps are just for comfort:

Leaving some big events like music events and sports, there is a considerable wait time to get out. I find expecting this makes the wait much easier.

One annual event I like is crowded and the waiting time in your car often exceeds 90 minutes - double that at closing or in bad weather. So I pack some water and snacks and wait it out in my air conditioned car.

04/07/21 05:19 PM Pandemic Wilderness Explorers Are Straining Search by AKSAR

Covid19 is causing more inexperienced people to head into serious terrain, straining SAR resources:
Pandemic Wilderness Explorers Are Straining Search and Rescue
Quote:
In the throes of a pandemic that has made the indoors inherently dangerous, tens of thousands more Americans than usual have flocked outdoors, fleeing crowded cities for national parks and the public lands around them. But as these hordes of inexperienced adventurers explore the treacherous terrain of the backcountry, many inevitably call for help. It has strained the patchwork, volunteer-based search-and-rescue system in America’s West.

04/01/21 04:13 AM Toddler found alive after 3 days in forest by dougwalkabout

A 3-year old who went missing in a forested area was found alive and well after three days in an Ontario forest. SAR is trying to figure out how they missed him less than 1 km from his last reported location, after an extensive search -- which was starting to wind down.

Takeaway: he was properly dressed for the conditions.

Point to ponder: is it possible that a 3-year old has more survival sense than some adults? Hmm.

Two thoughts: (1) If you're a pilot, make sure that you can afford a PLB. (2) Don't work for illegal mining operations.

Interesting story.

Edit: As pointed out below, NYT is paywalled. At least part of the story is available here, no account needed: https://news.slashdot.org/story/21/03/29...e-the-hard-part

And here it is at the tribune, maybe they don't require an account? https://www.chicagotribune.com/nation-wo...mqte-story.html

Sorry ya'll, paywalls suck.
