    Vanishing in the wilderness

    In the past I've been a long ways in to the back country wilderness in and around Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. Had a couple of things happen while camped there that I still wonder about. These stories are interesting and something that should be taken in to consideration when venturing in to the national parks. I've listened to a lot of these kind of stories over the years and there are two pieces of advice that seem to be good advice and consistent. Don't go alone and don't go unarmed. The government doesn't want you carrying fire arms in national parks but I don't think you should pay any attention to those communist bastards and SOB's, just keep your weapons out of sight.

    Thought I'd add that the government employees I ran in to when I was in the back country were assholes that seemed to like to bully people and were always looking for some thing they could chew your ass for.

    I live adjacent to the largest cluster of National Forest in the lower 48 states so I naturally find this interesting. I can't comment of the pattern of missing shoes other than the lack of media coverage it gets. I will say that it's quite common for National Park and National Forest officials to deny the existence of large predators in areas where they are sometimes seen and reported by individuals.
