As the title of this thread says I need help. I tell why I need some help on my mountain retreat in southern Wyoming telling quite a bit in the last couple pages of my wilderness survival retreat experiences sticky thread at the top of the wilderness section. I told about losing a couple toes etc.

I especially would really appreciate someone to drive me to Encampment. WY before September. I might have to hire a taxi but I would rather give all that money to a survival type person. I can also hire someone to help me get ready for winter moving stuff etc Anyone can ask me questions here if you wish....

Thanks for the quick responses. As many know and some really disliked I used to post links maybe too often to what I thought was interesting and helpful. That was when I had a laptop. I only have a phone now and I cannot seem to post links or even copy paste or post pics. But If any who are interested just go to my sticky thread at the top of the wilderness section and hopefully read some or all of my posts on the last couple pages. Maybe someone can post a link also

And Reckless driver it is Much more complicated than my not preparing. It is too difficult to explain although I did explain a lot on the last 2 pages of my sticky wilderness thread. In short I feared for my life and felt like I was being chased.

I still hope I was imagining even hallucinating a lot of what I was. fearing. But my small and my one big toe had to be amputated. I still can barely walk without pain. Hope I won't have phantom pain for years.

I truly must get back up there on my place. I sold my house in a city in CO so I still have dollars to hire one or two for a few days at. least plus I would pay expenses travel costs etc.

I also have hiked etc since 1978 in all kinds of weather and several blizzards and never dreamed that I would ever lose toes or almost die in the wild.... One can never be too careful or prepared but sometimes stuff happens. as I found out the hard way.......

Too many states away for me to offer any assistance Mike. Sorry to hear about your situation that caused you to lose toes. Hope there is someone willing to lend you a hand.

Events can defeat the best of us. All a person can do is pick themselves backup and move on. I used to say, "I make mistakes, and someday I will make the mistake that kills me." I mostly stopped saying it because people are incapable to own up to what they have done and they can not understand that no one is all seeing or all perfect.

Thanks for posting the link. If any wish to begin reading where I first posted about this event then just scroll down to near the bottom of page 38 then keep reading to the end of page 40.

Btw I might have hallucinated some but not because of alcohol or drugs. I rarely drink and then at rare social gatherings I might have 2 beers. I only took some aspirin most of my life until I was in the hospital in May..

I almost posted about all of this in the busy general disaster section and I still might if when I get a laptop to post some pics. Anymore questions I will answer but I still might not tell everything...

Glad I finally saw this post. I dislike missing posts especially questions that I am happy to anwer. Oalo did send me a private message also which I did answer.

To quickly answer is that I did get Some help last summer and I could have really used more help for even three or four days from someone or even two people anytime last summer when I was on my land from July 8th the earliest able to get up there since yet more record breaking snow. Still two foot drifts of old snowpack when I got up to my driveway on July 8th.

Only one guy really helped me the most and I told some about him and he also posted some pics in my wilderness sticky pic thread in the wilderness section. He helped but four days was not nearly enough to help me as much as I needed.

I tried to hire help but since I did not want to spend more than three thousand dollars no one did help me such as build. I offered one guy who is a carpenter and he said yes at first but then would not answer his phone when I called him several times last September. I would have given him even one hundred dollars an hour for five measly hours of work but he still would not.

Anyway, I could use help this next summer of 2020 but I will be surprised to see anyone even offer to come up. IF it is possible then anyone, just send me a message or email. The sooner the better and when the state highway is plowed open again usually by early June then I will be back on my mtn place to work and Live as long as possible up there. I Plan to live up there permanently but very very few have any good idea how really difficult it is up there. It is similar probably to parts of Canada, Siberia and Alaska if they have up to ten feet of snowpack. More similar to a lot of ski areas if those ski areas are around ten thousand feet in elevation. But I cannot afford to build a nice ski lodge but will see what I can get done next summer by myself like usual IF necessary.

But one more time I do ask for help. I hate to ask for help since most of my life I have almost always had to and I even enjoyed working alone. But anyone IF there is anyone who wishes to do something different this next summer of 2020 such as hike, camp, fish and hopefully help me at least some, building, getting more firewood cut and split and so much more. I will pay as well as I can and I will pay all expenses such as gas, bus or I suppose even plane tickets unless the tickets were to cost more than a thousand dollars.

Don't know what more I can do except hope there might be a few more good people at least somewhat similar to Watch Ryder who spent two summers helping and mainly doing what he wanted which was creating a few dozen youtube videos. Plus a Few others who have helped me over the years...
