What I worry about is people I was out in Colorado up passed Leadville on a 3-week backpacking trip about 14 days in. I was woke up by someone cutting my food out of the tree around 50 meters away, breaking branches and dropping my food bag around 10 meters into a bush. He then proceeded to pick up his rifle and threaten my life ending up with me losing most of my gear having to hike a good 30 miles back to the truck with little to nothing but my hatchet that I luckily enough left by my campfire the night before and what I was wearing.
Obviously, with no food or fishing gear, 30 miles over multiple peaks at 11k feet or so is hard enough without the lack of food or gear, took me 5 days to get back and thank god I didn't take my keys with me and left them hidden in the truck. if I didn't leave those keys there I would be dead now. Better safe than sorry I will never go backpacking or even a day hike without my sidearm. Most people you come across are generally good-natured but all it takes is one bad encounter to end up dead with your body never found and have it ruled as a backpacking "accident" or animal attack. Stay safe
Go down the missing 411 wormhole on youtube. It's fun.

The Missing 411 stories as told by David Paulides have always facinated me. The YouTube vid below can maybe shed some light on what make these people disappear.
Hikers/ campers are visiting a certain remote spot in the forests since the 50's and experienced some really weird and scary moments which they can not explain to this day. At a certain time they decided to bring a tape and videorecorder in the hope to capture the creatures causing them to hide in a makeshift hiding place whenever strange things occure.
I think it is the closest and only evidence there is which can be connected with these people disappearing. It is not nly weird noises that they hear but also witness orbs and a kind of poltergeist activity. This reminds me of sme stuff that happened on the Utah skinwalker ranch..can it be that these occurances are connected?
The other day I learned that an octopus has some 50.000 genes, twice the amount that humans have. They are very intelligent and can mimic their environment and other organisms. Can it be that there are unknown spiecies living in the deep forests with equal abillities. Or are these aliens trying to survive ever since their ufo crashed and became unable to get home. The campers in the movie say that they can pinpoint from where the noises come from but never been able to see the creatures who make these noises.
A few days ago I contributed to a bigfoot thread here on ATS with this short outtake but decided that this interesting "evidence" deserves his own thread and am really curious what you guys make of it. If you'd ask me and from the modest human knowledge that I have I believe that these campers are telling the truth.
Well decide for yourself and share with us what you make of it..

i was at a family camping trip in upstate ny.
it was the end of the night i had a few drinks and needed to pee and let the dog walk around and pee before getting in the tent with my GF.
as the dog and i were walking down a lonely path far from the camp site i paused to smoke a cig and let the dog do his business and as i lit my smoke i looked up at the stars waiting for the dog as i always did. this time there was a basketball sized orange orb 2 feet above me.
i froze with my eyes locked on it wanting to take in every swirling otherworldliness, after a few seconds i got spooked and let the dog know it was time to go and we walked slowly and the orb was right above me for about 7 steps and it just floated off into the woods.
at the time i didnt know anything about the 411 cases but the first time i heard Daves stories on C2C my blood turned to ice.
the path my dog and i were walking was right next to water as well. and i was drinking and a male with a good job and good education AKA the perfect 411 victim
that being said i was armed and had a BIG dog that was very protective of me(hes a rescue pit)
make of that what you will.
