So we got lost in the woods today. Not the good kind of lost but the oh shit kind of lost. My friend and I went to an unfamiliar trail and if I hadn't grabbed a map we would have been completely turned around. We felt better when we realised her phone showed the parking symbol on google maps. Still....there was talk of how to drag the other one out of the bush when they are dead :)

Half way through our misdirected wander we saw a man in full camo come from behind a tree. Huh, don't like the look of that. He walked away but we kept an eye out for him again. Turned the corner (in the completely wrong direction) and oh crap, there's more of them hiding in the scrub and they have GUNS. This is Canada and you don't just see guns willy nilly unless you're up north and it's hunting season...but even then. We seemed to be in the line of fire, the target being the first camo guy, holed up in the foundation of an old building. I waved at their target and we kept going. We had stumbled on a military training exercise.
Now that's a walk!
