My latest short story draws on my experience as an avid backpacker and hiker. “Never Walked Out” is the story of a father/son backpacking trip that goes terribly wrong.
Here’s a tidbit that only followers of this blog will know about the story; most of it is based on actual circumstances. The hike is real. A mysterious encounter on the trek is recanted exactly as it happened to my party on a backpacking trip. The trail conditions are fairly close to what we encountered.
One major part of the story is fiction – see if you can find out what it is!
