    You have got to be kidding! Somebody find that hiker and get him/her off the trail before they start a forest fire. Sadly, you can't fix stupid.

    The main attraction in that area is off road vehicles and quite a few come from Texas (it seems that is somewhat of a joke in those parts - tourists from Texas). During the day, I'm sure everyone is...
