While I have been on the subject of snowmobiling and getting stranded in the mountains I thought I would throw out a few scenarios to see what you would do if you were caught in this situation.
Say for example you were snowmobiling by yourself high in the mountains and having a grand old time when all of a sudden you run out of gas or your machine has a major malfunction and it’s starting to get dark (don’t ever do this but let’s just say you were dumb enough like me and did). What would you do?
You know for a fact there is a Forest Service cabin up the trail about a mile or so and has a wood stove in it but the trail is fairly steep. Should you head for that cabin?
Stay where your at, build a fire, get as comfortable as possible and wait until tomorrow morning when hopefully someone will come looking for you?
Start walking out even that you know it’s at least eight miles back to your rig but is mostly down hill?
I would love to read some comments as to what you think would be the best thing to do. Remember this is potentially a life threatening situation so think very seriously about it.
