If you want to find out how to get lost hiking in a circle, simply go out with my mom! At least she admits she is directionally challenged! Let’s think back to the drive to BlogPaws in Vegas last year shall we? Mom had no clue Utah was between CO and NV and she didn’t realize we had to drive through mountains. This lack of direction is how she ended up in snow with just shorts and a t-shirt. Good thing she has us to help her out.
Because Mom knows she gets lost easily, she printed out the trail map and said it would be so easy, we couldn’t get lost. It was a circle, anyone can do the hike without getting lost. We wanted to take the long trail, the blue one, so we started off at the first star on the right on the map.
It was starting to get a bit warm, and of all things, Mom had to go potty. This was the point we realized we were lost, not really lost, but no clue where we were. Our thirty to forty minute hike was at an hour and Mom had no clue how to get back to the car. Bailie and I could figure it out, but she didn’t know how to get us to track back to the car.
Our experienced navigator decided to turn around and go back, but guess what…she messed that up too! Suddenly we were in the middle of a disc Frisbee course, interfering with teenage boys trying to have some kind of competition. How embarrassing!
No matter, we eventually found the car, and Mom found a bathroom. We are all healthy, in shape beings, so we can handle the extra mileage. We were back were we started in about eighty minutes. If you want to know how to get lost in a circle, simply head out with my mom, she is a pro at it!
