Terribly prepared man dies while hiking in Mexico.  RIP Hari.

Lowlights from the article:

  • accidentally summitted another mountain
  • “I’m not exactly sure how to get down”
  • the phone company released all the information from Khalsa’s phone but said the GPS had been turned off before his disappearance
  • was reportedly carrying with him only a liter of water and a package of trail mix

Plan Ahead And Prepare is the first rule of Leave No Trace
bring a map, know the terrain, carry sufficient supplies
