Men and women, beware. If someone gives you bad vibes, hike away from them. Be especially wary at road crossings. If you have to hitch hike for a resupply, don't get into the vehicle if you're the least bit on edge. Trust your survival instincts.
Hike safe, hike long, hike light.
And remember, we won't give up our passion because of fear.
