An Oregon man whose car was stranded in the snow for five days says he survived by eating taco sauce packets and starting the engine periodically to warm up. He told his rescuers he and his dog tried to walk back to the main road but the snow was too heavy. He had a full tank of gas and slept in his car but when he awoke the next day, more snow had fallen. He attempted to hike out, but the snow was too deep, so he and his dog returned to the car. In response to a friend’s Facebook comment about how he ate three Taco Bell hot sauce packets during the ordeal, he joked: “Taco Bell fire sauce saves lives!” Rescuers located the man and his dog a few days later and they were totally fine. Hungry but fine. So this had me wondering....can someone survive off taco sauce??
You can live more than 3 weeks without food but only 3-5 days without water. Moral of the story is, keep a full tank of gas and some water & snacks in your car because you never know when an emergency will hit!
Taco Bell did indeed give the man free food for a year!
