Having been raised in hot climates (though the deserts can get cold in the winter time), I automatically assosciated "deadly climate" with "heat". But now that you mention it, I bet the Adirondacks do get very cold. Then factor in hypothermia if someone is cold and wet from either rain or from trying to cross a creek.
A cop saw one of the escapees jogging along the railroad tracks and stopped him for a chat. They had a ten minute discussion including the prison escape. The cop even remarked how similar the guy looked to one of the escapee descriptions. Then he laughed and let him go. lol
At least they know the direction he was heading...and it kinda looks like Canada. Perhaps the dogs can pick up scent along the tracks.
So, now we know the escapees have separated and are wearing what appears to be underwear er uh "jogging shorts". Maybe the dogs could still pick up his scent.
Cold and wet is a definite killer. Sadly, a man and his two sons were recently killed while hiking in south east Missouri after an unexpected temperature drop led to freezing rain and they missed a key trail in the dark. Your experience has all the makings of an episode of I shouldn't be alive. Good thing you did not become disoriented and were able to make it back to your car.

That was absolutely amazing.
I could tell the prisoner was nervous at first, but he really handled it brilliantly.
The copper asked way too many questions with leading answers, but the leads were accurate! That's not the way I remember my several juvi run-ins back in the big city - those coppers were smart & could sniff-out a lie in a heartbeat. Eerily smart!
I'm still blown-away the cop let him-off without verifying identity.
