Then the phone rang. Papa Pan was at the lumber mill waiting for a cab to pick him up and take them back to the car. They got lost and zigged when they should have zagged and went right past the car. When they got home they were full of the story...and blackberries. Wild Thing ate so many he threw up some. But he was still in great spirits.
According to Nature Girl "We survived on blackberries, corn from a field, and green apples!"
We used Google Earth this morning to see their path. It looks really impressive if you avoid looking at the scale. But it was a 6 km hike through unknown territory. I think that counts as a great adventure.
After they all washed up and cooled off and drank a ton of water we went to Lumsden Dam to swim in the twilight. Darkmirror was unwilling to join us as our "adventures" like this tend to come in clusters and he wasn't willing to get lost in the dark with us.
Editted to add:
"Oh and the best thing was that Papa Pan got peed on by a giant toad before we got lost She was brown. We also found trees that had been chewed down by beavers." - Nature Girl
