I call bullshit!
I don't for a minute believe this guy's story.
The family's statement said Schreck was beneath a log and covered with leaves for warmth. He suffered no serious injuries, they said. When deputies interviewed him about 1 a.m. Tuesday, he appeared in perfect health.
"No injuries, no bumps or bruises," Urquhart said.
The statement said Schreck "came to on Monday" and began working to get himself out. "Scrambling up the ravine, he filled his water bottle with muddy water and at around 2 p.m. began retracing his steps."
They searched for him, with dogs, all weekend long. He was gone for 3 and a half days, then just shows up; he claims he was out for three days, but doesn't go to a hospital, not even for dehydration. It's got hinky written all over it. Personally, I think he either spent the weekend with a lover or partying with hookers down on the SeaTac strip. LOOOSER.
Apparently he's had to have rescuers called out on him before, while skiing. I think maybe this guy should 1) not be allowed anywhere without a callphone and locator beacon and 2) have to pay for any future rescue operations himself.
