One lesson that I have learned from reading this story is to bring a trail-mate along with you incase something goes wrong. "If he had only had a trail-mate he would have been in no danger now." If the man brought a trail-mate with him the man wouldn't be suffering from the cold like his nose, hands, toes, and cheek bones wouldn't be frosted. The trail-mate would've have started the fire for him because the man couldn't feel his fingers.

Another reason that I have learned from reading this story is you should always listen to a person that tells you how cold it gets in the country no matter how young-old he/she is. "That man from Sulphur Creek had spoken the truth when telling how cold it sometimes got in the country." If the man would've listened to the old timer he would've been perfectly fine. The man would've just stayed home relaxed and calm without thinking how cold it got when he was out in the cold with the dog.
