I dropped to one knee, looking down at a torn map trying to figure out what I was and what direction I needed to go. I could feel the cold air hitting my face as the wind started to pick up. I could see snow starting to fall and the only thing I can think of is to find a place to bed down until the snow passes over. I was walking faster close to the mountain that was covered with rocks. I knew that there had to be a cave, indentation or something to use for cover.
Bingo! I could make out something in the side of the mountain. Only if I can make it before the storm really hits hard. I made my way as fast as I could. But, you know the feeling you get when the snow starts to fall faster and as you run hits your face? Yep, that is the way it felt. Finally, I made it to the small cave, but I was covered in snow! I dusted off the snow and took off my backpack. Crap! I the snow is coming down hard and I didn’t have time to grab any firewood. Well, I guess I will have to do it a different way. I opened my backpack up and pulled out my “Jetboil” I got from Nitro-Pak and an emergency blanket. (love my survival bag) Jetboil is an amazing tool to have! It is very small and compact to take with you anywhere. I started putting it together and “poof” started the fuel can. I took some snow from out side to make water and let it boil a bit. Then I opened my package of hot chocolate and dumped it in and stirred it a bit. Turned of the fuel and took the cup that came with the Jetboil and then snuggled up in my blanket drinking hot chocolate watching the snow. Just waiting until it passes so I can get out of here. Nothing beats Jetboil when your caught off guard, thanks Nitro-Pak.
