He survived because of phone contact and rapid response by Forest Rangers.
Thankfully, because God loves idiots, (I've been the idiot on several occasions too.) he is still alive. The late start, poor gear (micros on Algonquin is a stretch even IMO) a friend who turned around, apparently no map as the Loj is the best exit. Unsure what their experience was, only 19 so even if Dad or scouts dragged him out a lot, most of his younger years likely weren't planning, just following. Maybe they were winter warriors, although the clothing and lack of micro's would seem to indicate otherwise. The State should fine him either lots of money or mandatory enrolment in the ADK's Winter Skills Class. (Similar to the AMC Winter Skills Course)
