It’s a survival story that no one wants to experience, but everyone wonders how on earth it worked out. It’s doubtful that a movie will be made out of it, like “127 hours,” but an Oregon man who was stranded in the snow with his dog and some Taco Bell hot sauce packets managed to beat the odds. That should at least be worth a commercial deal, shouldn’t it?

Jeremy Taylor, a 36-year-old from Sunriver, Oregon, was stuck in the snow for five days when his truck couldn’t get through a remote road. He was discovered by area snowmobilers, with only the company of his faithful dog, Ally. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office has reported that Taylor was found in good condition, but was extremely hungry after being stranded for so long with only Taco Bell’s hot sauces to eat (and those are calorie free!).

To keep warm over the time he was stuck, Taylor started his vehicle periodically and held onto Ally, his dog, as well. He had initially attempted to make the hike to safety, making use of the overhead ski rack from his car as snowshoes, but gave up on that effort when he realized his dog wouldn’t be able to get through the deep snow. As far as sustenance, the Taco Bell hot sauce packets are said to have  2 percent of the daily recommended vitamin A allowance and 65 milligrams of sodium. The sauce consists of tomato puree, jalapeno peppers, and vinegar. Although Taylor was clearly quite hungry following this incident, it’s been noted that humans have lived anywhere from three to eight weeks without food. If nothing else, a food expert said that the sauce packets could have served as a morale boost Taylor needed to get through until the pair were discovered.
