|In the Gulch|
Anyway, we were hiking along and it was beautiful and we are just talking about whatever.....probably me talking about what recipe I want to try next and Mr. Gill giving me a history lesson on how the gulch was developed or rambling on about quantum physics.
So....we are walking and we come upon this sign that says there are wolves and mountain lions in the area.......which of course I get all freaked out about! Just a little bit, you know....I ask Mr. Gill what is his plan to save us from mountain lions and wolves, because I know that I don't have a plan and someone needs to HAVE A PLAN!
Thankfully he has a plan. He says if we run into a mountain lion we are supposed to stand together and raise our arms up so we look like a big scary monster thing and freak out the lion. ok-cool. I can do that. What about the wolves? "Oh, I don't know about wolves."
THAT WAS HIS ANSWER-I don't know how you save you my precious wife against a wolf attack-I guess I'll be the one that gets away because I'm faster than you and the wolf will pick up the slowest of the pack.
Which is me-it's ALWAYS ME!
But, I was not ok with this-Mr. Gill has a plan for a Zombie attack-why does he not know how to save us from wolves? So I told him-the likelihood of a zombie attack in Boise Idaho is MUCH smaller than the likelihood of a wolf attack in Boise Idaho. Just sayin'. Get YOUR GAME ON GILL!
This was about the time that I saw a white streak RUN across the path in front of us. So....I slow down....and look around....and I saw it again-and it stood up on a rock!
It totally made our hike more like an adventure, a nice one-not a "I might get eaten by a wolf because my husband has no plan" adventure.....which, really is more like a nightmare than adventure.

|Us almost home|
We did finish our 7 mile hike with no wolf encounters. We didn't see any mountain lions either-OR zombies! Mr. Gill still has a little bit of time I suppose to come up with a plan for when wolves attack!
Although, I think maybe his zombie plan might need some tweaking too now that we're out in the mountains....I feel like you only see the dumb zombies in large metro areas, not so much in the wilderness. We will be attacked by the smart and fast zombies, you know when it will happen I will be attacked first because they always get whoever is at the back of the pack and it's ME! It's always ME!
