Sombre is the hue of the man suffused with blackish bile, his body thin and dry and of meagre bulk. His aspect is frightful, his mind wanders and he says little, his spirit gloomy with sorrows, anxiety and horror that come at dead of night with ideas that disturb his mournful mind. Often he is as hungry as a dog, yet with appetite unsated he belches acid, his pulse is slow and infrequent, while the fluid leaving the kidneys is thin and pale, occasionally thick and foul and blackish. The skin is black with vitiligo or speckled with scurf, piles emerge at the anus or varices in the leg, and there may be cancer in the breast. Food causing flatulence is noxious. The juice of meat is excellent, and clear wine diluted thin; and drugs are helpful if but they purge the black humour. Whoever is dry and cold, with liver, heart and spleen weak and obstructed, has dark abundant humour: severe care and vigilance oppress the studious, the mind is seized and gapes at things in terror.
Over the course of two weeks at the end of the summer, in hastily decided rulings released in the middle of the night, the Supreme Court changed the lives of millions through decisions on immigration, the ability of the government to address the COVID-19 pandemic, and abortion rights.
Thanks for sharing it. Your situation sounds a lot like what I went through on Chicoma Mountain in 2007. What should have been an easy hike turned into an all-nighter because I got panicky and amped on adrenaline.I've been on both sides: as a member of SAR and as someone needing their assistance. We empathize with those who called us out, but until you have been truly lost yourself, it's difficult to convey what it feels like to be lost, not just off-route.I learned never to be complacent. It can happen to experienced individuals too.
Actually, phones are not the answer.First, they can't always catch a cell tower.Second, they aren't always charged up.Thirdly, its common for folks to use the flashlight in the dark and drain the phone battery.Fourth, they easily break upon falling.The answer is always having a map/compass which are considered by all experts to be the primary means of navigation. GPS receivers are actually secondary for the same reasons as phones. And knowing where you are at all times via that map and compass.Finally, retreating the route is the most often recommended action. Not pushing forward into unknown terrain where you might end up cliffed out.A very rewarding, educational, entertaining book that was written by a retired national park service ranger is the minimum training every high school kid should be given. The soccer and basketball can wait. Training in how to survive outdoors alone is far more important. \"Over The Edge: Death in Yosemite\" and its companion volume, \"Over the Edge: Death in Grand Canyon.\" Both are actual case files of fatalities in those public parks and what the victims did wrong. Both are written with each case file in two or three brief but fascinating pages. By learning what other victims did wrong, you'll be less likely to repeat their mistakes. Like the one case of the fellow and his girlfriend who hiked in Yosemite to view the full moon rise (well, and whatever else they did). But they didn't bring a light of any kind. After dark, while trying to hike down, both fell to their deaths. A simple mistake of not having the 10 essentials. Most incidents in the wild happen to the day hiker ... because day hikers are the ones usually not expecting trouble and the ones thus without the 10 essentials. Backpackers have their gear and are mentally prepared to be out overnight and thus have fewer emergency incidents.
Well, we all make mistakes, ehI just recently told someone that I'd rather sit back against a tree and wait till morning rather than have a noisy helicopter come looking for me and have myself end up on the news as the bonehead who got lost 1 mile from the pavement. She asked if I'd say the same thing given the threat of mountain lions... and I said, \"Uh, yes.\" And, yes, mountain lions are a threat despite the wanna-be experts of our time claiming otherwise. They're not house kitties. And once attacked, a human doesn't often succeed in escape. One man did manage to fight off an attack in WA state a few years ago but only after losing one of his eyes in the fight. And he was using his knife.Getting lost happens more often than not to the inexperienced in the SF Bay Area. We read of people about once a year doing that. Well, you're more experienced than me. I mean the stories of those who get into similar situations in Annadel Park with the residences of Santa Rosa all around them.But the cool of night and your lack of water made it important to get out.I guess you probably take your map / compass / gps / water / light jacket / snack / fully charged phone and probably a emergency satellite transmitter device when you go solo again, eh :)
