Stephen Haber was hiking the trails of DeSoto State Park in northeast Alabama and got himself good and lost. He continued to wander, fully unprepared for what he was about to encounter.

“I happened upon a retired couple in a Ford F-150 pickup truck,” said the native New Yorker who has lived in California for decades. “They could see I was lost, so after chatting a bit with them they said, ‘Heck, we’re going to just take you back to your car because you’re so far from your car it’s going to take you two hours to walk back there. You’re really not where you think you are.’ So they gave me a ride back to my car.

“There were two things about it that I thought were really remarkable,” Haber said. “The first was that it was a pickup truck and not a Tesla, and the second was this never would have happened in California. It’s highly unlikely that anybody was going to give a ride to a stranger back to their car in California.”
