where things went wrong
We left the ranger station Friday morning after after gathering the supplies we had packed the day before, headed for the oasis visitor center. There we loaded up the swamp buggy assigned to my supervisor Ranger Drew Hughes. From there we headed out into the backcountry, the interior of the park made up of rough trails, swampland and cypress groves accesible only by off-road vehicles. We had planned to travel about 40 miles on the day. At mile 3 our battery died.
