10 Horrifying Scenarios for a Thru-Hiker
Ghosts? Goblins? Monsters? Oh, please. You don’t know true terror, misery and horror until these things have happened to you while hiking the appalachian trail:
1. When someone left trail magic food for hikers, and there are only wrappers and trash left.
2. When the mosquitoes come out to dine.
3. When you wake up to find a bear eating all your food.
4. When you have to get out of your tent in the rain.
5. When you think you can rock hop across a river, but instead get very, very wet.
6. When you realize you left your hiking poles at the bottom on the hill.
7. When you are forced to sleep in a shelter (the Smokies make you do that), and you are sharing it with loud snorers.
8. When your water source has dried up.
9. When you run out of snacks.
10. Someone mistakes you as a hipster.
