Was the guy really carrying a tent?
Or was that journalistic license for a poncho shelter?

Was he really lost or did he actually just go backpacking in the park w/o a permit?

Then again, I've seen people on trail backpacking to a campsite carrying suitcases. And I've seen a guy on the trail dressed in grandpa cap, sport coat and loafers far above timberline.....

I'd say a hat/sunglasses/sunscreen are essential in Summer

In the event of a coronal mass ejection or EMP what would be the effect upon an LED bulb?

I tend not to worry about extreme events like an EMP. Focusing instead on smaller, frequently occurring events -- Storms, traffic jams, etc.
