It was quite a hassle getting the fire department out there. I actually don't have a smart phone, so wasn't able to give them coordinates. However, I knew where I was and I'm really good with maps, roads, and directions (former geologist), but I'll make a long story short and just say that the people I was stuck talking to were not. Very frustrating, I hope I'm never hurt in the middle of the forest and have to give directions to be saved. I do have a GPS and have started carrying it more. As I was walking along a small road toward the main road to try and meet the fire truck I met a man who was also walking his dog. He helped get them the coordinates and came back to the fire with me.
