Several times in the story the man recalls the old-timer from Sulfur Creek. What key advice did the old-timer give him? Why, in your opinion, did the man not follow his advice?



The old-timer from Sulphur Creek advised the man not to travel alone when the weather reaches fifty degrees below zero. The man does not follow this advice because he viewed the old-timer as “womanly.” The man is obviously stubborn and ignorant of advice from more experienced people. He was eager for adventure and died because of this eagerness and ignorance.
