How many people remember the TV series “Lost”, where the plane crashed and the passengers were stuck on a deserted island, sort of? Well, I didn’t get that kind of lost, but here is my version.
Working in northern Maine, many roads are made by logging companies and these can go anywhere. One particular day as we followed the corridor of the Appalachian Trail, we crossed a logging road. We continued working the rest of the day and decided that instead of hiking through the woods the whole way back that we would take the logging road.
We remembered seeing a road along the way and believed that this road would connect to the road where we parked. We started up the road and after walking for a long period of time, we started wondering where the other road was. We eventually came to a cross road and thought this was the road we were parked on.
After about an hour on this road, we started wondering if we were heading in the right direction. By this time, we decided that it did not make sense to turn back and we continued on. We eventually came to another cross road. We knew that we only crossed one road, so we kept going left. Eventually, we found our vehicle, but we had walked about 2 1/2 to 3 hours to get there. Next time, we stuck to the woods!
Where have YOU gotten lost?
