Horror short story about a couple on a road trip, end up in a small town during springtime, fight with each other, have sex, then notice the townspeople are all climbing on top of one another, crushing and killing each other to make some sort of ?. Story ends when the couple joins in (WTF?) I read it when I was like 8. I thought it was a Stephen King short story, but wiki'd all of them (I think) and couldn't find it.

Road-trip filter. I am in the process of planning a rather ambitious honeymoon. He and I are canoeing in the Boundary Waters area of Minnesota for a week, which is exciting enough, but we are also planning to drive there. From Mississippi. And tent camping on the way.

Where should two women go in August for about two weeks? A friend and I want to take a trip this summer. We're open to lots of different experiences, but would prefer that it not be too, too hot or too, too crowded. Places we're considering include Iceland, Norway, Nova Scotia, and Glacier National Park (Canada). Any experiences in these places or other ideas? Thanks, Mefites!

Should we use a travel agency to tour around (we do not want a group tour, though)--and if so, which one? Any recommendations for tour books? Any recommendations for must-not-miss sights?

I shall walk into the wild maybe for a week or so, depending on the weather, blisters, etc.
Who has recommendations for (relatively safe) *long* solitary walks in the U.S. or Canada?
Specifically, I'm looking for a hike/trail/path that I can follow -- walking 7-10 hours a day, for 5-7 days in a row. No cell phone, no computer, no schedule.
This would be a sort of annual retreat/walk/vacation/time-to-reset-my-body, that I'd like to do every year. Time to think, lose a few pounds, kick-up my metabolism, detox, chill out, regroup, spiritually recharge, etc.
Assuming I don't want to carry a gun into the wild (to protect against critters or humans), where are some interesting, safe destinations???
I'm not a survivalist and I'm not looking for an adventure per se. Prefer a minimum of life-threatening hazards and/or 100+ degree temperatures or freezing nights.
