    Not really. The uninformed and at risk hiker doesn't go looking for that kind of information. You can have signs, handouts, comprehensive accident reports, stories on the 6 O'clock news. All will be ignored.

    Nobody believes something like this will happen to them until it does. Don't climb on the wet rocks next to a waterfall. So, what do they do? Don't try to climb a mountain in shorts, sneakers and a t-shirt. So, what do they do? The list is endless.

    Your concern about how my tax dollars are spent is duly noted. As someone from away it will be given appropriate attention.
    That was pretty funny, I knew he wouldn't get that.

    I wasn't trying to be that mean

    Just pointing out that the guy from out of state was trying to tell me how my tax dollars need to be spent and I wasn't having it.

    I get it now, "away" means not from your state. That's witty. Thanks for the clarification.

    That phrase has been used by Mainers for a very long time.

    If I'm not mistaken, Alaskans use the same phrase.

    I was self employed once, but it proved too stressful. My boss was a jerk and my employee was a slacker - I didn't know whether to quit or fire myself.

    I think Alaskans use the term “outside”, rather than “away”.
