I passed the third grade first try (this time)

Did you notice UMPLAND is not considered a state on that map. I bet UMP will never pass that test.

It is it's own country now. UMP Sith Lord of Yooper Land, they seceded from the Union about 2 weeks ago amid all of the crisis in the middle east so it wouldn't be front page news.

Who wants to be my apprentice? I mean that in a Jedi way, not a Donald Trump way.

4 Rescued Hikers Had to Avoid Gators
The men got lost in the woods and waded through six miles of swamp.

PUNTA GORDA -- Four men set out on a leisurely weekend hike and ended up lost in the woods, wading through six miles of swamp and trying to avoid alligators.

"I was very scared when I realized I was lost. I've never seen so many alligators. We counted eight to 10 alligators," Tim Oates, 31, said Monday. "It looked like they were trying to creep closer. There were four good guys there to eat."

The four men wandered through the swamp for 10 hours before being rescued.

Oates and his three friends, David Birchfield, 50, Steven Lane, 19, of Port Charlotte, and David Rogers, 44, of Arcadia, started their hike in the woods near Oates' home on Hampshire Avenue in Fort Ogden.

When it began to get dark Saturday, the men became disoriented and found themselves in the Peace River in water up to their chests.

The men called 911 on a cell phone but couldn't tell authorities where they were because they had waded through miles of swamp, walking away from where they had started.

Deputies brought two sheriff's dogs to help track the men, and turned on sirens and lights. They kept in touch with the men by cell phone, asking if they could hear the sound or see the lights.

"They could not advise (of) any land markers and lost their direction," DeSoto County sheriff's Deputy Clifton Brown said in a report.

Next, officers called Nextel and were able to get the men's exact location through the cell phone system.

Authorities from surrounding counties assisted with the search.

A Charlotte County helicopter hovered in the area until an officer spotted the men in the water.

Officers from the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission picked the men up by airboat and brought them to shore.

The men, who work for Marine Contracting Group, started the hike about 2 p.m. and were rescued about midnight.

When it got dark, they dug into their wallets and burned what they could find to start a fire, hoping they would be spotted by authorities.

Oates said they started burning all the paper they could find in their wallets and then started burning $1 bills.

"We burned our credit cards," said Birchfield.

By the time officers found them, the men had started a small bonfire.

Birchfield looked back on the incident with resignation and embarrassment. He said his friend Oates assured them that he knew his way around and they wouldn't get lost.

"I feel so foolish getting caught in a situation like that," Birchfield said.
