There was an interesting article on BackpackingLight some years ago (before I stopped following that site) about two experienced hikers who were so busy talking with each other that they missed a turn and ended up going the wrong way, not realizing it until they were almost back to where they started from, and noticed that the bridge they were crossing was very familiar!
