some years ago a buddy and myself were way back in the ouachita national forest
camping out and fishing in the creeks and roaming around. while we were at one
creek at a steep bluff, three younger 20 somethings came sliding down this bluff
and stopped where we were and were huffing and puffing and all scratched up to
crap. they were in shorts and flip flops and reeked of booze and pot. they finally
asked where the bleep was the road, and we got them pointed in the right direction.
after about another hour as we had left and were heading back to our camp, we came
upon them again sitting in the middle of the path. they'd wandered off the trail we
pointed out to them because they really didn't believe the directions we gave them.
i guess they planned on just sitting there until someone came along and pointed them
right again. i guess if it had been winter they'd have froze to death and been a bear
or bigfoot dinner with no supplies or resources
