Finally took the BR trail today. ...
....
about half way out, we saw two people who were suffering from hypothermia, the woman to the point that she is unable to walk and fainting. They both were just wearing a t-shit and had no flash light.(it was already dark by the time we run into them). this is about 7pm. I ended up piggyback her out.

what I learned today, is choose a trail that is within your ability, and prepare for different senarios when you go into the wild. I strongly recommend anyone who comes bring a flash light and wear something more than just a t-shirt. and plenty water, or fill up at the creek.

That was very very nice of you to carry the hypothermic woman out. They are quite lucky you guys came along.
This could have ended badly.
