On tonight's Johnson City, TN, news, they interviewed a female thru-hiker who had spent the night in the snowstorm on Unaka Mountain.  For some reason, she didn't settle down and set up her tent and get in her sleeping bag.  She was hiking alone.  Way in the night, when she fell down in a fetal position on the mountain, she called her mother-in-law, who called for rescue.  They got her down sometime in the morning.  The rescue ATVs bogged down in the snow, and they had to walk her down.  The hospital said that she has signs of beginning hypothermia, but nothing serious.  It's all very odd and sketchy to me.  With cell phone reception being what it is in the mountains around here, it's a miracle she got through to anyone.
