A lot of people will inevitably look at this and they will say, "Well, that's why I don't need a coat or a blanket or sleeping bag and a bunch of other stuff. She made it on two candy bars and melted snow. That's why I think all this survival stuff is paranoid and stupid."
And I'm sure a lot of people do think that way. I think a lot of them become the "tragic" news stories, too.
