“Whatever the story, it reeks of incompetence on her part. Didn't know how to self-rescuse. Didn't know how to navigate. Didn't know to tell someone where she was going.
She basically blew past all of the basic tenants of backcountry travel.”
“She knew. Seasoned hiker and biker ! i bet she is a Troll too. Me me me me me me me !!!
I want to see where she was.
Where are the investigative reporters?
“I agree Sandyann..at 3:30 in the afternoon, she was complacent enough to sit down and wait 6 days for someone to find her...thats a death wish...”
“Definitely an odd story. My biggest questions: why a press conference? Who called it?
Interesting comments and pics following that article:
I have a friend who lives on her street. She might have stopped by his house and smoked some before she went hiking. That could explain why she was stuck for 6 days.
How about following the creek? Fall Creek isn't THAT difficult, especially if you're not injured
BTW: I see no basis for thinking Munchhausen or proxy (if by proxy, who is the proxy?)

“I stand corrected I should not have included the by proxy.
It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with Factitious disorder. (Discuss)

Munchhausen syndrome is a term for psychiatric disorders known as factitious disorders wherein those affected feign disease, illness, or psychological trauma in order to draw attention or sympathy to themselves. It is also sometimes known as hospital addiction syndrome or hospital hopper syndrome.”
“The next time HPD says he never makes personal attacks, someone needs to remind him he is so full of crap that his eyes are brown
Of course he will come up with some insane aregument that his earlier post was something other than what it was
Of course the difference is I won't go running off to the mods like my ass is on fire”
So you criticize everybody who posted on here for being critical, and I point that that is hypocritical (literally) - and that is a personal insult? Man, you are desperate to come up with something! Pointing out that somebody is hypocritical is not a personal insult last I checked, but I do understand that you may be desperate. LOL!”
“By the way, I am not one of the people who supported having mods, but if we ARE going to have mods, we have to play by the rules. The mods asked us to report violations, so that's the rule. If you don't like it, you can go elsewhere. If you'd stop making personal insults you wouldn't have to worry about it ... just a tip.”
YOU CAN WALK AROUND OUTSIDE!
I AM SO IMPRESSED! THAT'S HARDCORE DUDE!”
“Impressing the feeble minded doesn't take a rocket scientist.
Or is it that your not allowed out of your Moms basement so any outdoor talk is like fantasy island to you?”
“oh well gonna go watch snow melt. Has more interest than your inane rhetoric.
“YEAH! Being able to walk around outside is like a fantasy of mine! I'M SO IMPRESSED!
I only wish I could carry a boatload of provisions around with me outside. That would be HARDCORE! It would be like being inside, but it would be outside! WOW!”
“Of course the difference is I won't go running off to the mods like my ass is on fire
This cracks me up the more I think about it. Why WOULD you go to the mods, if I just said basically the same thing you said, that YOU were being critical? The only difference is that YOU were being critical of everybody on this board, where I said that by the act of saying it, you were too! LOL! Man, you crack me up. You were insulting. I was correcting your malformed logic. What would you tell the mods? That when you insulted everybody as being critical that somebody told you that you were doing the same thing? Yeah, let's start banning people for THAT! ... Get real.”
“WTH crash? LOL”
“Hey, take the personal attacks back to fuego!
Does having an opinion constitute a personal attack? I digress..
Some douchebag on the other site said stories like this make him remember to bring his PLB. Why don't you also remember to wear a diaper in case you s-hit yourself. And bring your mommy in case you need a kissy. What a bunch of poossies over there. Gaccc!”
