On a section hike of the AT when my friends and I happened upon a group of VT and WVU students swilling screwdrivers and bag wine. After visiting and helping them lighten their load we headed off to War Spur shelter. As we descended 2 of the young'uns ran past, trying to make the liquor store in Blacksburg before it closed. I pictured blood and a medical helicopter in my head.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
