It can happen that quickly; you get lost and end up dead in one night.
This is what almost happened the other night while doing a little trip to the hot springs on the border of France.
I’ve faced death a few times in life and this one was right there with the other times, but I somehow got out of this one alive too. I am going back to my little town tomorrow but I will remember this fun trip and all of the crazy things that came with it. In just two days I’ll be working at the HVAC business doing my normal heating and cooling equipment repairs and thinking about this trip we just did. I will be taking another trip over the Atlantic Ocean soon and heading for another adventure back in my hometown. My friend is a new contractor back home and was asking me if I could help him do some commercial A/C installations and I told him yes of course I could. I can tell him all about my fun trip to the mountains with my friends and how I almost ended up being a landmark on that mountain for other hikers to take pictures of. I have a new appreciation for heating and fireplaces in homes after being so cold for so long on that mountain that one night. I think next time I go hiking I am going to bring a compass and a tent so if I get lost I can just make a home and sleep for the night. Oh, and I would also bring a gas space heater!
