    That’s a scary thought, if you crashed out there and survived the crash. Hopefully a rescue team would find you but if not…the mountains just go on and on.

    Awesome photo

    You can't think of it that way.
    You crash.
    You find all the elements for survival.
    You make a snow cave.
    Use your cell phone as a beacon through it's pings. (Or on mine, it has GPS)
    Start a fire.
    Make water.

    Thanks for the compliment on the photo. It was a great day to travel!

    I remember flying over mountains like that when I was a kid thinking about that, it’d be a long walk home lol J/k your chances on being located are better if you stay with the aircraft.

    But trust me I’d fight to survive, I wouldn’t give up but it still a scary thought to be lost in that kind of terrain.

    Actually I’m on a wilderness survival forum which I great and there’s a lot of knowledgeable people on there but unfortunately its being over run with spam right now. I hope the administrator gets back soon so he can clear it up. Hears the link if your interested http://www.wilderness-survival.net/forums/index.php

    Yeah... I follow another one too called www.summitpost.org. There are a TON of SAR (Search and Rescue) groups in the area to get involved in if you are interested in doing something like that. There is one that I will forever be interested in being part of, but my schedule will rarely permit for me to participate in such things because it's such an incredible time commitment.

    Thanks for the insight on that particular forum, though. It's always nice to see other/different climbing forums.

    Besides... you won't know how to survive until you are put into a situation TO survive, right? We all say that we could/would do certain elements in order to be able to stay alive, but you will never know until you are in that circumstance. I am learning that slowly. I wore my flip flops on the airplane there and contimplated wearing my business suit on the way back, but had the very thought that you did... so I changed into my running shoes and wore normal clothes instead.

    Well you can certainly increase your chances by learning and practicing certain skills. Like what plants are edible and which ones will give you the most nutrition and energy, also learning deferent ways to start a fire is a good idea. I’ve learned to use flint and steel to start a fire though I could still use some practice with it, also I’m really good with a magnifying glass, I hear you can also use dome shaped ice like a magnifying glass to start a fire but I have yet to try this. I also want to try the bow and drill method.

    That sight also has a home page with a lot of info on edible plants and different types of shelter and traps…stuff like that http://www.wilderness-survival.net/

    But now I'm getting carried away on the subject lol

    I think it was smart to change into your normal clothing and shoes
