I saw on the news the other night that over the weekend, two young adults decided to hike a mountain in the snow. They didn't bring any supplies with them and ended up veering off the path and getting lost. Thankfully, they were found the next morning, but are now suffering from hypothermia. What does it take for people to understand the importance of bringing supplies with them just-in-case? I think it's better to be over prepared, than underprepared.

Sounds pretty dumb if you ask me. I would never go hiking and not be prepared. I certainly wouldn't do it in the winter without the proper gear. They are certainly lucky that they came out alive.
