Do y'all still feel bad for those poor travellers? Don't. They are an obnoxious bunch that contribute nothing to society; that never clean up after themselves and leave a ruined environment wherever they go.

Of course, I am glad this story had a happy ending. My question is, how was a 30 year old man convinced to stay? Is there an emotional/psychological issue not discussed?

Noted, although I' would have preferred it to come from a more reliable source. I don't doubt that the story is true in general, but details need to be checked out.
