That makes a difference. People were more trusting in the 70s and we do more dangerous things in general in our 20s. Once we get into are 40s and beyond life experience kicks in and we are more careful. I bet they would not do the same thing now because they had that experience.
Paul I wanted to go to a remote beach in Cabo San Lucas, but I chose not to because I was afraid of getting stuck there. So I guess that is another tip don't put yourself in situations where you can be stuck in a remote area.
