Chris arrives in Lake Mead National Recreation Area. He completely ignores the posted warnings that off-road driving is strictly forbidden, and steers his Datsun off the pavement. A flash flood occurs, which caused the engine to get wet and not work. Because of the many undesirable questions he would face if he notified the park ranger, he decided to leave the car, burn his money, and continue to hike around Lake Mead. Shows how much he didn't care about rules, and how he wanted to be alone.
