Had a great hike today – even though, for the first time in many years, I came across another set of tracks out in the wilderness. I followed them to see if I could find out what the person’s intentions were. It only took me about 5 minutes to ascertain that the person who made the tracks was a heavy-set man, with a long stride, and a person who would stop periodically to scan the forest. I could also tell that the person I was tracking had been to UBC to work on his Master’s in Economics and had two children, and a dog named Karma. I learned all of this when I realized I was tracking myself, having done a complete 360 degree walk in the fog. I laughed at myself when I determined that I was good and turned around at that point. It took all of about 30 seconds for me to regroup and to ascertain my actual position.
