After sometime, the man started to worry about making it through the snow and to meet up with the boys at camp. He started to trust the elder man's advice that he received earlier that the low temperatures were dangerous. Thankfully, he wasn't too far from town.
He decides to not go any further, but instead, build a fire to cook the chicken that has been following him since the city, and make his way back to town after he eats.
While building the fire, the chicken escapes and he is left only with his sandwich.
He heads back on the same trail he came out on, this time he comes across a large bear!
Thankfully, his friend Aidan decided to head out on a hike the same day and savagely defeated the bear that was attacking the man.
The two men made it back to town. Safe, sound, and cold.
