Snowbound Man Survives for 5 Days on Taco Bell Hot Sauce Packets

Snowbound Man Survives for 5 Days on Taco Bell Hot Sauce Packets

Deschutes County Sheriff's Office posted on Facebook Wednesday that Jeremy Taylor, 36, of Sunriver, Ore., was missing. He was last seen getting gas in Sunriver.

He told his rescuers he and his dog, Ally, became stuck in deep snow on a US Forest Service road later that same day.

Taylor said he slept in his vehicle that night and planned to hike out the following morning. They attempted to hike out of the wood but found the snow was too deep.

36-year-old Jeremy Taylor got stuck after he went driving near Wake Butte in his 2000 Toyota 4Runner with his dog Ally. Unfortunately for the pair, by the time Monday morning rolled around, even more snow had come down. Taylor said he attempted to walk out, but the deep snow made it very hard and he and Ally returned to his vehicle.

Steelers' Brown: 'It's all about respect'
Quite frankly, if all else fails, I would even be willing to offer the second overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft for Brown. The belief was that if the 49ers have an interest in Brown, discussions might heat up in Indianapolis this week.

Jeremy Taylor told officials after his rescue Friday with his dog, Ally, that he staved off hunger by eating leftover packets of Taco Bell hot sauce he found in his vehicle, The Bend Bulletin reported. The only food he had were leftover taco sauce packets. "I really appreciate all the help", Taylor wrote on Facebook.

Taylor, joking about how he had sucked down several fast-food franchise hot sauce packets in his auto, noted: "Taco Bell fire sauce saves lives!"

"Jeremy and Ally were found to be in good condition, but hungry after being stuck in the snow for five days", the sheriff's office said in a statement. "Got lucky, let's never do that again", cited by The Guardian. Not long after, the pair found themselves snowed in on a forest service road, and without any way forward, Taylor made a decision to sleep in his auto overnight. "I'll be in touch with everyone soon", he wrote on his Facebook page late on Friday.

Central Oregon has been buffeted by snowstorms in recent weeks.
