The trail is abundant with other hikers, so don't be frightened to meet another person on the trail.
You grab your two pots together and start banging them together loudly, hoping the noise would at least attract someone to the spot. Luckily for you, the bear runs away with his tail between his legs. Thankful to whatever brain cell came up with the idea, you set out again down the trail, a spring in you step. After walking for a few hours, you come across a small town! Not believing your extraordinary luck, you enter the town and decide to sleep in a bed tonight. But instead of a small inn, you see a man running out of a shop and clutching an item to his chest.
A) Stand stock still stupidly and not belive this is happening;
B) Retreat back to the trail and pretend you where never there;
C) Drop your pack and valiently tackle the theif.
