This one isn't so funny, except by the time you see it, it's too late:

A better translation:

That's just as humorous.

Any great signs that you have found on your recent travels?

Next time you are in REI look in the book section. They have a book full of signs like these from around the world.

"Any great signs that you have found on your recent travels?"

Here's one from Hong Kong -- not my pic -- but pretty "amazing" translation -- given 150 friggin' years of British rule!



Any questions? :)

You might die sign

The "You Might Die" sign. Two people have died from heat exhaustion since someone stole the sign -- but people were dying on the trail when it was posted -- I guess they couldn't read. And they must have missed the sign below earlier on the trail...

No water

rural lousiana

Found this gem in rural Louisiana. All the back roads in this area are named after men who I surmise lived there once upon a time. With a name like that clearly he was a man to remember.

The first one is at the trailhead, the second one was repeated along the trail. Let's see... there are, ummm, don't tell me... I'll guess BEARS here, right?

Thanks for the warning!

We liked this map at the Granite Creek Trailhead in the Ansel Adams Wilderness:

And this sign near Carson pass:

And who knew that we were this close to the Lord of the Rings?

This is a reflective sticker on the ashtray in the back seat of a Laotian taxi. Out of focus though, sorry...

Sage advice for some through-hikers with an attitude of entitlement:

no one



Something to think about when resupplying in town:

mcd


And for those starting either the CDT or PCT from the southern terminus:

mex
