Hiker Survives Five Days in Lava Field...

As I was writing about the other day, you can live for many days without food but not very long without water. I found an interesting story on the AP wire and wanted to share it with you. It's about a 41 year old man who had left his car at the end of a road near Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. He wanted to check out an active volcano nearby. He was an experienced hiker and that plus gear he was carrying saved his life. After seeing the lava flow he started heading back to his car but got turned around. Lava rocks are unforgiving on your feet and there is little vegetation in old lava flows. This man was incredibly smart and a young boy on a helicopter tour was extremely curious and noticed a bright light coming from the lava. I'll let you read the rest of the story here. This is what I want people to learn, that with a little creative thinking and preparation you can survive what most people would not believe you could.
