"Dude, we're lost."

"No, not really."

"Yes, yes we are. And it's about to rain. We should bail."

"Nah. We're fine.  I can't come this far and turn around. I really want to find the ruins."

"Dude, we've been scrambling for two hours. We're lost. When the rain hits, that chute we just climbed up will become a waterfall. We gotta go."

"Let's keep going. We can wait out the rain under the trees or something. We gotta find those ruins!  Sweet photos in the rain, too."

"I don't know.  If we get out of here we can be home by dinner."

"Well. That's just the thing."

"What is?"

"I told my wife I'd be home in a couple of hours from now. She's been alone with our three kids all day. And I'm late. Add it up."

"Oh I get it. We're going to have to break your leg out here or something, huh?"

"Think it'll work?"

Ha ha. I remember that trip. We had already identified our holding spot in case you hadn't returned when the rain let loose. All I know is we sure made it back down that trail faster than going up.
