This is absolutely not true. People go off trail all the time in wilderness areas and such. It's not common knowledge to be terrified of the outdoors.
^ Another non-wilderness hiker. I said nothing about your "terror" of the outdoors. I have no terror of the outdoors. I know more about hiking in remote areas that you will ever know. And I know what to look for, and what to avoid. I could easily track you on a trail. People like you leave obvious signs.
Congrats. This has nothing to do with what you said.. which is that you should never take side trails when hiking. That is not common knowledge, nor does it need to be.
