(Mis)Adventures in the Backcountry

Date Dec 3, 2015

It’s a given that humans make mistakes. We leave the chicken nuggets in the oven too long, turning them into charcoal briquettes. Or we mis-judge the distance from one step to the next, and take a goofy-looking fall. Sometimes though the mistakes are more serious, and we count ourselves lucky to be able to talk about them. So learn from these mistakes and follow your danger sense, ’cause the backcountry will always be there.
