Jesse Didn’t Expect This Danger in the Wilderness.

Eight people stood shoulder to shoulder with the handles of their shovels pushed as far into the ground as they could manage.

“One, two, three. Now push down hard!”

Their eyes bulged, their muscles grew taut, and sweat streamed down their faces as they simultaneously applied pressure underneath the rock. For a split second, the rock rose slightly but then disappointingly settled back down.

“Okay, it moved a little so let’s give it another shot. One, two, three, heave!” This time, as they pushed, the rock lifted out of the hole and teetered on the edge.

Together, they stretched out their shovels and gave the rock one more shove. With a shudder, the rock burst off the ledge and rolled down the mountainside, gaining speed, pin-balling off trees, smashing, crashing, and destroying shrubs in its way, until it hit a ledge.

“Hey!” They heard someone yell.

Find out the missing man’s identity and how Jesse and Cash deal with him.
