wow, that beats my story my story only involves a severly sprained ankle, coming off lost mine peak. i'me too tired to type it all out now, so i'll give the cliff notes.i sprained my ankle very badly nearly 3/4 of the way up the peak, which is at least 5 milrs from the lost mine trailhead. luckilly for me, it only hurt to turn it a certain direction, so i could walk normally. it still hurts to this day, and i still believe i tore something. i'll never know though :/ i WAS happy i was with a group of ~10 people, so i could have been helped off, though without me trail blazing it would have taken a while :oops:
Before long we had decided it would be great fun to hike 'Buck Nekkid' to Devil's Den
It was going to be difficult explaining to rangers and his wife why he was naked and dead in the middle of the Chihuahuan desert.
Wow! I didn't even consider the flash flood issue. Muse's mention of running out of water
He increasingly complained about feeling faint and then started worrying about 'dying out in the desert', so I found the tallest, widest bush/cactus around and parked him in the shade beneath it and started pouring water down his gullet as fast as I could get it out of the gallon milk jug. It was going to be difficult explaining to rangers and his wife why he was naked and dead in the middle of the Chihuahuan desert. After a few minutes he felt good enough to start back to the camping area, but that was pretty much it for him as far as hiking in the desert sans clothing in the summertime in Big Bend was concerned.
