MILTON, Mass.—Local residents were puzzled Saturday morning after spotting two people, wearing what appeared to be hiking gear, park their car near the Blue Hills Reservation then proceed to walk down a dirt path leading into the woods, only to wind up back at the exact same spot four hours later.
“Did they get lost or something? I mean what kind of person gets out of their car, spends half a day wandering around the forest, then ends up right back at their car?” said local roofer Mike McMillan, adding that only a dumbass would spend that much time strolling around without having a clear Point A and Point B in mind.
“And what were they doing parking at Blue Hills in the first place? Don’t they know it’s just a bunch of trees and rocks over there? There isn’t a decent sports bar or a packie for miles. Frickin’ chuckleheads,” McMillan mused.
Although the identity of the hikers could not be confirmed, it is believed they were from the Cambridge/Somerville area, as they were seen driving a beat up Subaru Outback with two “Coexist” bumper stickers on it.
