This Oregon man is thankful he didn't clean out his car after that food run.

Jeremy Taylor took a drive in Deschutes National Forrest on Feb. 24 with his dog Ally, but the vehicle got stuck in the snow, the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office said on Facebook. The pair stayed put but woke up the next morning to even more snow.

Taylor attempted to walk with Ally, but the snow was too deep and they returned to the car.

Police say Taylor told them he stayed warm for the next four days by periodically turning on his car. And he survived, police say, on taco sauce packets for food.

A snowmobile rider found Taylor on Friday and alerted officials. The man and dog were in good condition but hungry, police said.

Taylor wrote in a Facebook post Saturday, according to HuffPost, that he was "lucky." When asked about the select choice of sustenance, Taylor said, “Taco Bell Fire Sauce saves lives.”
