Guy gets lost on N CA mtn 3 hr hike for 10 days.

Bad luck or stupidity?
All you have to do is walk down hill till you meet a creek and follow that till you meet a road and follow that down hill to civilization.
I dont get it.
If I was out in the desert it might be more difficult.
At least I would know where West was after the first day.
Plane contrails are allways 10 o'clock to 5 o'clock here as well. PDX in and out.

When we were hunting the mountains we always had a satellite GPS. Not the GPS on your phone.

I use a compass. I had one of the Garmin in-reach thingys with the sat phone at my childrenís insistence and I am not bad with electronics , but could hardly turn that thing on-good old compass works fine. Iím always out in the sticks

Back in the younger days when I Snowmobiled in the the High Sierras most of the time you could follow your tracks out if need be, but we where always exploring new routes or short cuts. A GPS and a topo map where a must.

I can understand getting turned around in the Sierra Nevadas, but Coastal mountains like the Santa Cruz? Maybe they're a lot more remote than I thought

I knew a group of people once that went on a three-hour tour and almost didn't make it back...

You sound like someone familiar with the area. Not everyone is. I wouldn't know any of that stuff, besides east/west/north/south.

That may have been the reason they never got off the Island.
