I have to agree with Ranae and the others on this one. Yes, Matt is the team leader. But, as the team leader, _he is supposed to practice what he preaches at all times_! So, by doing exactly what he would most definitely have yelled at _them_ for doing (running off through the pitch-dark woods, half-cocked), under the exact same circumstances, he proved himself a little hypocritical. Thereby cancelling out the validity of his "twenty-five years experience."
