On this edition of B-Side, Tamara Keith and Charla Bear get lost on purpose. They are dropped off in a mysterious suburban location and have to find their way back to downtown Washington, DC. Think of it as a low budget version of one of those survival shows on the Discovery Channel. The show is all about losing things from a diary to a stream. Enjoy!
