A 41 year old La Pine man is very lucky to be alive today, after suffering hypothermia when he crashed his atv a couple miles west of La Pine. Clayton Lichtenhahn crashed his ATV four miles from his home, when his vehicle hit a tree that fell across a forest road. He then walked another 12 miles disoriented, when an employee of the Twin Lakes Resort, Joie Frazee found him: “Just good circumstances. He probably wouldn't have made it another night. Definitely suffering from hypothermia.” Lichtenhahn was wet from swimming in the wickiup reservoir and was wandering in the woods in his underwear. He also broke his ankle and some ribs. Frazee called the Sheriff's Department and learned they were looking for Lichtenhahn. His wife had reported him missing when he hadn't returned from his ATV ride Monday evening. He spent Monday night in the forest.
