This may be the only instance of someone being grateful for being alive after consuming something from Taco Bell.
For all of those people that keep extra packets of sauce in the glove compartment — this is your moment to gloat. It’s not laziness or hoarding — you’re prepping for possible disaster. Those sauce packets could mean the difference between life and death… maybe.
Jeremy Taylor, 36, is an avid outdoorsman who loves to go off-roading. Taylor’s SUV got stuck on a U.S. Forest Service road near Sunriver, Oregon, about 180 miles south Portland. He was out with his dog, Ally, and they tried to hike out of the area but the snow was too deep. He survived for five days by turning on the engine periodically and eating what he had on hand — three packets of Taco Bell Fire sauce.
A snowmobiler found Jeremy Taylor, 36, of Sunriver, on Friday and a search and rescue team member who rode to him on a large snow tractor brought him out of the woods, said Sgt. William Bailey, the spokesman for the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.
Taylor, an avid outdoorsman who loves to go off-roading, was last seen getting gas on Feb. 24 in Sunriver.
He told his rescuers he and his dog, Ally, became stuck in deep snow on a U.S. Forest Service road later that same day.
He slept in his car and when he awoke Monday, more snow had fallen.
Taylor said that he never wants to go through that again, but has managed to keep a sense of humor about the ordeal.
“Thank you everyone, I’m safe my Ally dog is safe. I really appreciate all the help. Got lucky, lets (sic) never do that again. I’ll be in touch with everyone soon,” he wrote on his Facebook page late Friday.
Taylor did not reply to a message sent through Facebook on Saturday.
In response to a friend’s Facebook comment about how he ate three Taco Bell hot sauce packets during the ordeal, he joked: “Taco Bell fire sauce saves lives!”
Taylor and his dog were both in good health when found, authorities said, but were very hungry.

Well, that’s not a surprise. Five days with nothing but three packets of Fire sauce will do that to a guy.
The question is — will Taco Bell rise to the occasion and give this guy free food for the good publicity?
