Early twenties I'll guess. Park service road well paved in the middle of nowhere. It was a spontaneous decision by James to take this road and he had not done the proper mapping. He reached a point where it was unclear if the switch backs on the map were going down or up and there was no Internet to verify. So on this wide road James in his cycling tights, no place to conceal a weapon, way of the side of the road, motioned in a begging fashion for them to stop so he could ask a question about the road ahead, as if it continued climbing there was not enough energy in the battery to do it.
They continued to slowly go on by. Spontaneously he walked into the road and gave them a 2 handed salute. After a while one of the females provided a salute in return as they drove slowly away.
James is smiling at himself, not proud of this but he is not sure it was a badd idea. Didn't they deserve some sort of a reaction to bring into question their lack of humanity? And even now he can't think of a better way of serving them.
