A hiker is walking up to the shelter when he sees another hiker with a rod and reel fishing in the privy. He walks over and asks ” what in the world are you doing in there”? He says “I dropped my jacket in and I’m tryin to get it out”. The first hiker looks in at the jacket and says “You’re not actually gonna wear that are you”? The second hiker shakes his head in disbelief at such a ridiculous question and replies “Heck No! There is a Snickers in the pocket”!
A hiker comes to the river crossing up north and wants to get across, sees another hiker on the other side and yells over…. HOW DO I GET TO THE OTHER SIDE….
The other hiker looks up river, then down river and yells:
YOU ARE ON THE OTHER SIDE!
There were these two guys out hiking when they came upon an old, abandoned mine shaft. Curious about its depth they threw in a pebble and waited for the sound of it striking the bottom, but they heard nothing. They went and got a bigger rock, threw it in and waited. Still nothing. They searched the area for something larger and came upon a railroad tie. With great difficulty, the two men carried it to the opening and threw it in. While waiting for it to hit bottom, a goat suddenly darted between them and leapt into the hole! The guys were still standing there with astonished looks upon their faces from the actions of the goat when a man walked up to them. He asked them if they had seen a goat anywhere in the area and they said that one had just jumped into the mine shaft in front of them! The man replied, “Oh no. That couldn’t be my goat, mine was tied to a railroad tie.”
Two guys are out hiking. The first guy says, “Did you see that?” “No,” the second guy says. “Well, a bald eagle just flew overhead,” the first guy says. “Oh,” says the second guy.
A couple of minutes later, The first guy says, “Did you see that?” “See what?” the second guy asks. “Are you blind? There was a big, black bear walking on that hill, over there.” A few minutes later the first guy says: “Did you see that?” By now, the second guy is getting aggravated, so he says, “Yes, I did!”
And the first guy says: “Then why did you step in it?”
A friend of mine went to the doctor. The doctor looked at his chart and said, “I can’t believe you’re 95! You’re in fantastic shape.” And my friend said, “I’m a backpacker. All that up and down hill hiking keeps me in shape.” And the doctor said, “How old was your father when he died?” “Who said my father’s dead!?!?” “Well, how old is he?” “He’s 122.” “And where is he?” “Out on the trail — he didn’t have a doctor’s appointment today, so he though he’d get in 20 miles.” “Wow! How old was your grandfather when he died?” “Who said my grandfather’s dead!?!?” “Well, how old is he?” “He’s 141.” “And where is he? Out on the trail?” “No. He had to come into town to get married today.” “Why would a 141-year old man want to get married?” “Who said he wanted to get married?”
