Most of the time it’s just me in my sphere on the trail. So I lie down in the middle of trail confident that no one will be coming along.
I need to be careful of doing that right out of town because there are often day hikers around. One time I felt sleepy coming out of town, so I laid down on the trail and went to sleep. I woke up to a day hiker screaming because she thought I was dead.
A hiker on the Appalachian Trail told me this story: She was hiking along when she saw a man lying on the trail. He had his tent laid over him and a “Do Not Disturb” sign out. “Odd place to take a nap” she thought as she carefully slipped by him mindful of not disturbing him. A little ways down the the trail she met a sheriff who said the man was dead.
