There are few things worse than trudging through the woods and walking straight into a spider web. It covers your face and you can’t help wondering where the spider now is.

Scratch that. There are few things worse than trudging through the woods and running into a patch of devil’s club. If you don’t know what that is, believe me when I say that you never want to find out.

Nah. There are few things in the world worse than crossing a tree-limb bridge over a creek and then falling in and getting your boots wet. On Day One. Of a long backpacking trip (not that that’s ever happened to me…).

Nope. The Absolute Worse Thing is losing your sunglasses when you have a cold with runny eyes. Out in the middle of nowhere. On Day Three of a Day Five trip.

But you know what’s the best? Having a dream where you forgot you had a college class, and now it’s the end of the quarter, and you haven’t done any of the homework. And then you wake up.
