    The chick was with two guys that were breaking into a remote hunting camp. She told them she didn't want anything to do with the theft. Then, they apparently abandoned her.
    Was she not near a road?
    The sound of a vehicle travels pretty far, couldn't she hear traffic?
    Are there areas of Alabama that are that remote?
    Jimbo, I'm guessing clothes were used in place of toilet paper. One misuse of poision ivy leaves would cause a person to start looking for other means!

      Unless she stayed on the same couple of acres, I don't know how she could stay lost that whole time. You can't walk a half a mile in any direction without coming across at least a logging road and I can hear trucks on the highway three miles away depending on the wind. There is a fair amount of agriculture in the Union Springs area, too. I think there's a skunk in that blackberry patch, somewhere.

        Country Road, something is fishy about the story but that much weight loss and the condition of her skin indicates something happened to keep her from getting out of the woods. I know some women with horrible senses of direction who get lost in he mall parking lot. Put them alone in the woods and they would panic.

          I am not too sure there is much use for toilet paper when you are losing 50 pounds. If there is nothing going in, there can't be much coming out !

            This is true. I know a woman who can't tell left from right. I'm willing to believe that she stayed in the woods that long, but I sure don't think she made much effort to find her way out. You would think she'd encounter a timber cruiser checking stumpage or a hunter putting out game cameras for the coming season.

              I was cutting wood one day without gloves - mistake #1. The area was covered with poison ivy. I had to pee and did not think about the poison ivy on my hands. Well, don't ever do that. It was several uncomfortable days and scratching continuously in public made it not too socially acceptable.

                LOL! Jimbo, that must have been pretty bad!
