Man burried in car for two months with no food Alive

Postby DoubelDD » Sat Feb 25, 2012 3:48 pm

I keep following this story and waiting for someone to confirm this guy really wasn't in his car for TWO MONTHS. It seems unbelievable to me. I thought sleeping in my car at the trailhead for one night was a nightmare.

If it is real, it is pretty incredible that someone could survive for that long by just eating snow, and in those temperatures.

I'm willing to bet the farm that this is not real.

Notice the article just states "experts say it's theoretically possible" but they offer no physiological explanation of how.

Plus if eating snow is how he got water I call double BS. He'd have to be melting the snow. Hard to do in -30 C temps. How did he stay warm anyways?
Hi. I like to go outside.
