I have traveled deep into many wilderness areas mostly alone.  There is an evil spirit deep in the remote places of the world. It's name is stupidity. I'm not shocked at all that people go missing. I have seen some pretty stupid things that people do. Most of the time they manage but for every idiotic thing I have seen there probably is 1000 that i did not. I can probably list 15 things off the top of my head that can go wrong and no one will ever hear from the person again.

This dosnt mean the wilderness is all that dangerous. In fact you are in more risk driving there than being there. Just don't forget about  the dunning-Kruger effect.

Sounds a lot like an ongoing advertisment in this thread.

So close to the major holiday too.

I suppose it is an age old scenario going back to leaving a trail of breadcrumbs to not get lost.

A good topic that doesn't require the need for a hard sale or heavy price tag imo.

..   it should come as now surprise that more people  'disappear' out in the boonies  than close to home?     .. add in the factor that people , alone , in the woods  are easier targets for predators ,  of ALL  sorts ?

if you go on holiday there you can take a book with you......now what books are there about this area...hmmm!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Unless you are in Certain parts of Africa there really is not even very many preditors that will mess with people. In north American it's really just bears and cougars. Very far north wolves Mabey.  Attacks are extremely rare. In California for example, despite it's image of coastal cities like LA or San Francisco, has sprawling wilderness areas and has only suffered 56 fatalities from bears since the 1920s despite haveing 10s of thousands of visitors to the parks and an over population of bears. These attacks are almost always in defense of young, on a wondering toddler, or someone being stupid. ( a nineteen year old girl painted herself in peanut butter for her boyfriend and a bear got her instead while she waited in his tent to surprise him). Cougar attacks are more rare than dog attacks. Unless you are in grizzly country the only dangerous animal you have to worry about in the woods is man.

Sometimes I have gone to parks by myself and felt uncomfortable around some shady characters.   I do my best to keep my distance from these people.

When I went during the work week (Monday - Friday) there was hardly another soul there.  Plenty of peace and quiet, and yet eerie at times, too.

It's best to be vigilant and carry some kind of legal protection.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

Yea its rare that im craving a fresh book, sucks that its so costly. Add me to that discount list hilander.

Other life in the universe?, you dare to imply there are entities possibly far greater than us almighty humans, creators of canned ham and reality tv. Nonsense. Absurd.

   The reality that stupidy exists in abundance doesnt bother me. Its the fact that theres still no cure.

     Yup,    I was thinking more of   human predators  taking advantage of isolated people...  but ya,,  good point animal attacks are VERY rare.     Snake bite  and accidents  probably account for some  ''mysterious''  disappearances?  

I'm usually not too worried about animals  when camping.. i worry more about people showing up...  they are unpredictable critters!

Funny when I google the general topic, all I seem to get is this book or people talking about this book.

It doesn't really appear to be something that folks are talking about.

I think it would be really interesting to take all of his occurrences and research them to find out if they really happened.

Missing people can be so weird.

I looked into UK's figures and it seems 275,000 people go missing a year.  looking at a snap shot of missing people I would say more than 90% just got up and left due to financial, relationship, mental illness etc.  However there are just a few cases where things look really weird.

Under 16 year olds who would usually cause a nationwide search seemed to have just vanished and the authorities don't seem to blink an eye.  One I read about was a 14/15 year girl who took a taxi to a beauty spot never to be seen again.  No indication she was meeting anyone, usually these cases would have been looked at for potential foul play but it was just classed as a missing person.

Another strange one was a mother of two.  She was at home and in the middle of preparing dinner for the children.  The husband/partner popped out and when he returned she was gone.  The food still cooking, no money taken, no documents.  They were described as a very happy couple by most who knew them.  Maybe she just ran off, but to abandon two children in a potentially dangerous situation just seems so weird.

In a day an age were you need banks, documents, national insurance numbers to do just about everything how can it be so easy to vanish?  The UK also has only 1000 unidentified bodies dating back to 1950.
