Anybody else take a drone with them on hikes or backpacks?
Can't say that I do. But I have a funny anecdote about drones and hiking.
Coming down from a day hike to Golden Ears a few summers ago, I heard a loud whirring. I had never seen/heard a drone before and was startled by the noise until I saw the drone zipping around.
A few twists and turns of the trail later, I came across a group of 4-6 hikers in their late teens. They were huddled together close to a large tree. When they spotted me they asked nervously, "is there a horde of killer bees up ahead on the trail?"
