OR man Jeremy Taylor survives snowstorm by eating hot sauce

Posted March 05, 2019

In an update posted to Facebook, Deschutes County said: "Jeremy and Ally were found to be in good condition, but hungry after being stuck in the snow for five days".

Jeremy Taylor went missing on February 24 during heavy snowfall near Sunriver, about four hours east of Portland, an area that has been hit by major snowstorms in recent weeks.

The experienced backcountry aficionado detailed how he got his auto stuck in deep snow later in the day while traveling on a remote US Forest Service road. Unable to continue on, the man and his dog slept in the vehicle but awoke to find further snow had fallen the following day.

They tried to walk out, but the snow was too deep.

36-year-old Jeremy Taylor got stuck after he went driving near Wake Butte in his 2000 Toyota 4Runner with his dog Ally.

And he survived, police say, on taco sauce packets for food.

Mr Taylor and his dog were found after five days. Jeremy and Allie were then transported to the intersection of FS Road 40 and FS Road 45 where he was reunited with family and friends.

An Oregon man was rescued Friday after being trapped inside his vehicle for five days with only taco sauce packets to eat.

"Thank you, everyone. I'm safe; my Ally dog is safe".

Taylor, joking about how he had sucked down several fast-food franchise hot sauce packets in his vehicle, noted: "Taco Bell fire sauce saves lives!" "I really appreciate all the help", Taylor wrote on Facebook.

Five days later on March 1, Taylor and Ally were found by a snowmobiler who called 911, and the vehicle was towed out to safety by a local rescue team. "Got lucky, let's never do that again", cited by The Guardian. "I'll be in touch with everyone soon", he wrote.

On Saturday, Taylor responded to a comment about the taco sauce packets.
