I wonder if he was prepared for the blast of winter going on right now? Hopefully he is okay and they end up finding him alive and well.

Scary....

Now I feel better about "packing too much" when I hike.

Glad he was found alive and well. I hate to see what he is going to be billed.

It's good to hear he is okay. Packing a little more gear than one thinks is necessary isn't such a bad thing, especially when the weather turns like it did for him.

Or in this case, PACKING GEAR isn't such a bad thing. Way more than lucky to be alive!

Even on a day hike, at least pack a fleece sweater, some synthetic long johns, and a waterproof jacket and rain pants ...

I don't know how many times I have been going up and have seen people travelling with not much more than this fellow was wearing. If the weather holds out then great, your not bogged down by excess gear, but it's not worth the risk. This guy is very lucky to have survived for several days without equipment.

This person is from Littleton, so it does suprise me that he wouldn't have considered that the weather could turn cold with little to no warning.
