Do you know the 10 essentials every hiker should have? Are you prepared if something happens on your hike, or you get lost?
Tony is an experienced hiker who took a wrong turn on Mt. Baldy, had to activate his PLB and was found by West Valley Search and Rescue. Ed Nemeth, a SGWA volunteer and WVSAR member, was part of the team that got Tony out safely.
Tony wants everyone to know that the unthinkable CAN happen. Look at his video and think about what you would do.
