I've taken those little tree-toppers in Nepal twice. Not a comforting experience. I swore them off after the first time, but on my last trip my buddy had just three days left in the country before he had to get back home, and we had at least a seven day trek back to civilization. Went for it again - swore myself off of them again...
I go into the forest because that is the last place where man is not in charge.
