A marriage proposal is( I presuppose) a stressful thing. Beyond the fear of being rejected, there’s the pressure to make it a Big Memorable Moment. This past week, one couple went a hair too far in their pursuit of an epic proposal–ending in a 911 see and paramedics being involved. Read on for a point-by-point guide on how NOT to stage your suggestion. IDGAF how good that “top of the mountain” Insta sounds to you.
This < s> fairytale romance f* cking tragedy started with the couple, Joshua Mason( 27) and Katie Davis( 28 ), flying to Denver for an eight-mile hike. Seems like a journey I’d break up with someone for booking, but k. Apparently, Mason wanted a “scenic location’ away from any other people’ to propose, ” a quote that ultimately attains me happy this history doesn’t end with Davis being slaughtered in the woods. Formerly they reached the place he had in mind–on a nearly 13,000 foot top, because why TF not–Mason get down on one knee, and Davis said yes.
At this point, things unraveled at an alarming rate. They’d gotten a late start, and it was starting to get dark. They had no equipment or ocean for the purposes of an overnight stay , no cell service because they were on the top of a mountain, and no hypothesi “where theyre”. And this, my friends, is the exact reason I will never go camping. Also, never mind how pissed I would be that my lover planned a proposal at the end of an elaborate hike–he also didn’t are all aware to get home or bring enough ocean ?? If you’re going to drag someone to a secluded cliff to get the proposal you dreamed of, the very least you can do is have an exit strategy, MASON.
Luckily, another hiker met these two geniuses and delivered them to a nearby camping ground. Since the couple was showing signs of altitude sickness and dehydration( is this what you always dreamed of, Mason? Is it just what you hoped it would be ?), another camper hiked so far to get cell services and called 911. Side note that I am super uncomfortable with how far away they were from cell service. Like , not only one hike, but SEVERAL hikes. Why is that even legal ?? Paramedics got to the couple at 4:30 am and immediately moved them to a lower altitude to regain. They got back to the trail manager around 6:30, at which point “Mason acknowledged that he did not allow enough time to complete the hike before nighttime, and they did not carry enough ocean or food.” Yeah , no sh* t.
Anyway, the takeaway here is pretty simple.
Hiking is frightful Don’t stage your recommendation somewhere that requires equipment to survive, and for god’s sake, do it somewhere with cell service. I wish a lifetime of happy to Mason and Davis–a lifetime that, thankfully, was not cut short due to this bro’s inability to plan.
