My s/o and i went hiking yesterday and while on the hike he was ahead of me, unbeknownst to me he took a wrong turn and got lost in the mountains..

when i got to the car he was not there, he called 911 from his cell and they tracked the signal from his phone and he lost signal while talking to the dispatcher, they sent out the rescue team, fire dept, cops, we had a helicopter hovering over the trails for almost 3 hours. he was found , he was ok, but his pride took a bruising lol. i was so relieved and angry. he is so very embarrassed about it. he told me to keep this to ourselves because he doesn't want his buddies at work to find out. i had to say something at least on cm. i will tease him about this forever. bwaahahah..

  • Scary! This actually happened to me and my family before, minus the 911 call. It was horrible. Glad your SO is ok!

  • That would be why you don't hike that far ahead, need to stay together.

  • This sounds like something that would happen to my DH. I'm glad he's not so likely to go hiking in the mountains!
