"Doug, thanks for taking me hiking with you," Bobby said as we were making our way down from the summit of Old Speck.

"Oh, well, I was glad to have you along. Besides, it's all in keeping with the wilderness survival class I took this year."

Bobby was puzzled, I could tell. "You took a wilderness survival class?"


"Of course. And one of the first rules we learned for survival in the wilderness is this: Always bring along a friend who is smaller than you."

"Nuh uh. There's no such rule." He paused. "Is there?"

"Sure," I explained. "They're easier to subdue and tie to a tree, to keep the bear occupied while you run away."
