I'm not trying to save the world. I normally wouldn't have picked the
guy up, but we had just passed a fatal car accident, and this guy was
standing next to the road at dusk, and it seemed dangerous. So I was
moved to pick him up before he got squished.

I wasn't hurt. He just sneaked the wallet off of the top of a cooler
between the front seats. The real problem wasn't so much the money,
but that he took my ID. With the lovely works of Mr. Atta and the
zealous response of George W. Bush, you can't check into a hotel these
days without one. So we went camping until Monday morning, when I went
to the DMV in southern Utah and because I had memorized my license
number, I was able to get a new one zippy quick.

The vacation was saved by the fact that my main credit card was in my
pocket, not in the wallet, otherwise we would have indeed been
screwed. Chock one up for absent mindedness... :-)
