If you were stranded, would you rather be in the arctic, the desert, the mountains or the jungle?
The mountains. The Arctic would be freezing; the desert would be hot and dry, the jungle wet and thick and have lots of deadly animals. The mountains are much safer. Not the Alps. Not bare rock. Not Yeti country or any such thing. Old growth forest probably.
When I think of being stranded on the mountains, I think of My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George. Boy runs away from home to live on a mountain. He lives in a huge burned-out tree, finds food, survives the winter, befriends the animals and learns valuable lessons about life and independence.
This is my kind of stranded. Surviving on my own but…. well, if things don’t work out, I can always go home again.
