The man explained that usually, there would be no way they would have found me so quickly if it wasn't for that man over there. See, he was on foot at the top of the mountain with everyone else looking but had brought something from home to help.
The EMT pulled out a cylinder from his pocket, he called it a portable telescope! He saw it online a few years back and picked it up. I remembered it saying it could see farther and clearer than most binoculars. So he figured he would grab it just in case.
And for your sake, thankfully, he did. He not only spotted you first but was able to get a clear enough image to pick you out in the brush. The rest of the crew almost didn't believe he saw you it was so far out.
You were over a few miles away when they finally found you!
Sure enough, there you were, It looked like you had slipped and fell. If we didn't get you patched up when we did, this could have been a lot worse. And with that, the helicopter had shown up and hoisted me in. I knew that I needed to find out what this device was as soon as I was able.
Since then, I've made sure to have one in every vehicle and pack in my home. It's quickly become one of my most prized tools. I never want to feel that unprepared again.
Oh, and I later went back to the spot they found me with my new Portable Telescope, and I was able to pick up the trail I needed to be on in seconds. If I had that with me the day after the storm, I would have easily got back home.
So I bet you're wondering....
WHAT IS THIS PORTABLE TELESCOPE?
