Make sure you always stick to the main trail.
You manage to lose the weird hiker by ducking down a few side trails. You find the main trail, and continue hiking after a rather unsuccessful lunch. But up ahead, you hear an ominous roaring. You decide it's your stomach, and just continue hiking. After all, that creepy guy could turn up anywhere. You arrive in a clearing, and see a large bear chewing up an expensive looking backpack.
A) Play dead and hope the bear doesn't notice you;
B) Scare the bear by banging two pots together and making as much noise as possible;
C) Decide to fight the bear using only your wits and a large stick.
