Man Says He Survived on Taco Sauce Packets While Stuck in Snow

Man Says He Survived on Taco Sauce Packets While Stuck in Snow

Jeremy Taylor was found Friday afternoon by Deschutes County deputies.

An Oregon man and his dog became trapped on a forest service road when his vehicle got stuck in the snow. On Monday, he and the dog tried to hike out, but the snow was too deep and they returned to the vehicle.

Turns out that Taylor had kept himself and his pup warm by turning over the car's engine periodically, and had sustained themselves on hot sauce packets from Taco Bell that he had found in his vehicle.

Five days later on March 1, Taylor and Ally were found by a snowmobiler who called 911, and the auto was towed out to safety by a local rescue team.

A snowmobile rider found Taylor on Friday and alerted officials. Just last week, an Amtrak train traveling from Seattle to Los Angeles, via the Bay Area, with 183 passengers got stranded in the snowy mountains of OR for at least 36 hours.

Correction: An earlier version of this story, relying on information from a news release, misspelled the name of Ally, Jeremy Taylor's dog.

In response to someone who commented on his status update, he wrote: "Taco Bell fire sauce saves lives" and he really wasn't joking either.

36-year-old Jeremy Taylor got stuck after he went driving near Wake Butte in his 2000 Toyota 4Runner with his dog Ally.

A man and his dog who were trapped by deep snow in their vehicle in central OR for five days survived by eating taco sauce, United States police say. They were later reunited with family and friends.

An Oregon Water Resouce SnowCat with one DCSO SAR member responded to the location and made contact with Jeremy and his dog Allie.

In a Facebook post on Saturday, Taylor described himself as "lucky", adding: "Lets never do that again". Even in central OH - cars run off of roads in snowstorms.
