Tried to read the link and a pop up informed me that "I was outof free articles" Certainly sounds like a real epic...

I was able to get to the article (don't know what I did differently, hikermor) and it seems pretty amazing. This guy just did not give up.

Sounds like a real ordeal> Note his motivation for this feat: "I wanted to be around for my kids."

As I read stories like this, I keep reading the same thing. He or she did not tell anyone about their plans. Therefore, no one knows they are in trouble.

Why do we see this so often?

Because many people believe {Nothing wrong will happen)

Actually, as a prepper-minded, or safety-minded person, I hear too often that I am a "pessimist", or "take life too seriously" !!

Well, Aussies endure an excruciating journey to safety. Americans, if they break a leg, sue their employer:
