    2 Mt Percival hikers escorted to safety, 26 Oct

    An all too common story:
    Lost the trail on the descent, no lights map or compass, called for help ~6pm. Found and escorted down.

    How do the F&G folks keep their cool when they have to replay this scenario over n over again almost every weekend? I don't think I could do it!

    e.g.: "You stupid f*&king morons. Where's your map? Compass? Flashlight? WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE??? ARRRGGGHHH!!!"

    Probably good I did not go into this form of public service.

    Strange days indeed -- most peculiar, mama
