If you've had a chance to watch Murder Mountain on Netflix, you'll recognize the name Humboldt County as being a particularly dangerous part of the American West. The docuseries focuses on the marijuana black market and the many dangers it presents the community of Humboldt County, California. One of the integral parts to Humboldt County is its dangerous terrain. People constantly go missing in the area, and residents tucked away in the wilderness tend to self-govern adding an extra layer of danger.

Recently, two young girls went missing in Humboldt County, but thanks to survival training, their ending was a happy one.


The Carrico sisters, five-year-old Caroline and eight-year-old Leia, were last seen outside their home in Benbow, CA at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, March 1st.

The sisters were following a deer trail when they lost their way.

The young girls were lost for a terrifying 44 hours in an environment described by Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal as,

"...rugged territory, this is extreme environment."

According to the sheriff,

"[The girls] were trained through 4-H for outdoor survival, we believe that played a part."

These survival techniques included them dropping granola bar wrappers which gave a trail for rescuers to follow.

Even more impressively, once the girls realized they were lost, "they huddled together under a bush" and drank water from Huckleberry leaves.

They were found approximately 1.4 miles south of their home and had no injuries past being dehydrated and cold.

People all over are celebrating the sisters' miraculous rescue.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
